Principally Unimodular Skew-Symmetric Matrices

André Bouchet, W. H. Cunningham, J. F. Geelen
1998 Combinatorica  
A square matrix is principally unimodular if every principal submatrix has determinant 0 or 1. Let A be a symmetric (0; 1)-matrix, with a zero diagonal.  ...  A PU-orientation of A is a skew-symmetric signing of A that is PU. If A 0 is a PUorientation of A, then, by a certain decomposition of A, we can construct every PU-orientation of A from A 0 .  ...  Introduction A square matrix A is called principally unimodular (PU) if every nonsingular principal submatrix is unimodular (that is, has determinant 1).  ...

2013 Linear Algebra and its Applications  
Restricting the class of equivalence transformations to unimodular congruences, a Smith-like skew-symmetric canonical form for skew-symmetric matrix polynomials is also obtained.  ...  These results are used to analyze the eigenvalue and elementary divisor structure of matrices expressible as products of two skew-symmetric matrices, as well as the existence of structured linearizations  ...  We thank Leiba Rodman for bringing to our attention the application to symmetric factorizations of skew-symmetric rational matrices, and we thank André Ran and Leiba Rodman for helpful discussions.  ...

Skew circulant quadratic forms

Dennis Garbanati, Robert C. Thompson
1972 Journal of Number Theory  
This paper investigates positive definite unimodular quadratic forms in n variables with rational integer coefficients and a skew circulant as the coefficient matrix.  ...  It is shown for n < 13 that every such form is in the principal class, but that this no longer holds for n = 14. It is also shown that such forms can never be even.  ...  Let A and B be it x n positive definite symmetric unimodular matrices with rational integers as entries.  ...

On unimodular tournaments

Wiam Belkouche, Abderrahim Boussaïri, Abdelhak Chaïchaâ, Soufiane Lakhlifi
2021 Linear Algebra and its Applications  
A tournament is unimodular if the determinant of its skew-adjacency matrix is 1. In this paper, we give some properties and constructions of unimodular tournaments.  ...  A unimodular tournament T with skew-adjacency matrix S is invertible if S^-1 is the skew-adjacency matrix of a tournament. A spectral characterization of invertible tournaments is given.  ...  The inverse S −1 of S is a unimodular skew-symmetric integral matrix, but its off-diagonal entries are not necessarily from {−1, 1}.  ...

A note on the spectra of certain skew-symmetric {1,0,−1}-matrices

Gerhard Wesp
2002 Discrete Mathematics  
We characterize skew-symmetric {1; 0; −1}-matrices with a certain combinatorial property. In particular, we exhibit several equivalent descriptions of this property.  ...  These results allow characterizations of unimodular orientations of the complete graph, of rank 2 chirotopes, and of a class of multipartite oriented graphs.  ...  A is called a principal unimodular (PU) matrix if the principal minors det A| F are in {1; 0; −1} for all F ⊆ E, where A| F =(a xy ) x;y∈F : PU matrices have received some attention in the literature,  ...

A normal form for Riemann matrices

A. A. Albert
1965 Canadian Journal of Mathematics - Journal Canadien de Mathematiques  
Two Riemann matrices co and coo are said to be equivalent if (2) holds with A a unimodular integral matrix. The relation of equivalence is also easily seen to be an equivalence relation.  ...  A matrix co having p rows and 2p columns of complex number elements is called a Riemann matrix of genus p if there exists a rational 2^-rowed skew matrix C such that is positive definite Hermitian.  ...  Indeed the matrix (5) C, J» E ) \-E 0/ is the usual canonical form for the skew matrix C under unimodular congruence, and Co is a principal matrix of co 0 .  ...

Matrices with elements in a principal ideal ring

1933 Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society  
By this I mean that the basic theorems of number theory, such as unique factorization into primes, hold for a principal ideal ring, while the concept of principal ideal ring is sufficiently general to  ...  The mathematical system which seems most satisfactory as an abstraction of the system of rational integers is the principal ideal ring.  ...  For if 2A = S + Q, where 5 is symmetric and Q is skew, then 2AT = S -Q, so that 2[A +A^ -S] = 0, 2[A -At -Q] = 0. 3.
