About the Authors
  • This book provides an integrated treatment of the theory of nonnegative matrices and some related classes of positive matrices, concentrating on connections with game theory, combinatorics, inequalities, optimization and mathematical economics. The authors have chosen the wide variety of applications, which include price fixing, scheduling, and the fair division problem, both for their elegant mathematical content and for their accessibility to students with minimal preparation. They present many new results in matrix theory for the first time in book form, while they present more standard topics in a novel fashion. The treatment is rigorous and almost all results are proved completely. These new results and applications will be of great interest to researchers in linear programming, statistics, and operations research. The minimal prerequisites also make the book accessible to first year graduate students.

    • Multidisciplinary applications from game theory, optimisation, mathematical programming, economics and statistics
    • Many results, most of them completely proved
    • Minimal prerequisites: each section of the book is self-contained and can be read independently

    Reviews & endorsements

    "It is a great work; great by its dimensions, written with extreme love and care, concentrating the knowledge of a generation which was supreme in the history of matrix theory. It is a very illuminating and highly readable exposition of interesting topics which are of great relevance both to theory and applications." Mathematical Reviews Clippings 98h
