Matrices That Commute With Their Derivative

Speaker: Hans Schneider

Abstract: We display a facsimile of a letter that Issai Schur wrote to Helmut Wielandt. The subject matter concerns matrices of functions that commute with their elementwise derivative. We discuss the contents of Schur's letter and we add some results of our own. The talk is based on a paper with co-authors Olga Holtz and Volker Mehrmann.

Free Pizza will be served.
