Combinatorics Seminar: Preservers of positivity and total positivity in fixed dimension

Seminar | December 7 | 2-3 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

 Apoorva Khare, Indian Institute of Science

We discuss which functions preserve the notions of positive semidefiniteness and total positivity, when applied entrywise to matrices in a fixed dimension. This question has a long history, starting from Schur, Schoenberg, and Rudin, who classified the positivity preservers of matrices of all dimensions. The study of positivity preservers in fixed dimension is harder, and a complete...   More >
