On free matrices

Thomas Britz

    Research output: Book/ReportReportResearch


    Bipartite graphs and digraphs are used to describe algebraic operations on a free matrix, including Moore-Penrose inversion, finding Schur complements, and normalized LU factorization. A description of the structural properties of a free matrix and its Moore-Penrose inverse is proved, and necessary and sufficient conditions are given for the Moore-Penrose inverse of a free matrix to be free. Several of these results are generalized with respect to a family of matrices that contains both the free matrices and the nearly reducible matrices.
