Perimeter preserver of matrices over semifields
- 28 Downloads
For a rank-1 matrix A = ab t, we define the perimeter of A as the number of nonzero entries in both a and b. We characterize the linear operators which preserve the rank and perimeter of rank-1 matrices over semifields. That is, a linear operator T preserves the rank and perimeter of rank-1 matrices over semifields if and only if it has the form T(A) = U AV, or T(A) = U A t V with some invertible matrices U and V.
