Semiring Isomorphisms and Automorphisms of Matrix Algebras



The research shows that each matrix semiring isomorphism over an antinegative commutative semiring R with unity is a composition of an inner automorphism and an automorphism inducted by an automorphism of the semiring R. It follows that every automorphism of such a matrix semiring that preserves scalars is inner. A matrix over an antinegative commutative semiring R with unity is invertible if and only if it is a product of an invertible diagonal matrix and a matrix consisting of idempotent elements such that the product of its elements of one row (column) is 0 and their sum is 1. As a consequence of a theory that was developed for automorphism calculation, the problem of incident semiring isomorphism is solved. Isomorphism of the quasiorders defining these semirings also follows from the isomorphism of incidence semirings over commutative semirings.
