##### Abstract

We investigate conditions under which the identity matrix ${I}_{n}$ can be continuously factorized through a continuous $N×N$ matrix function $A$ with domain in $ℝ$. We study the relationship of the dimension $N$, the diagonal entries of $A$, and the norm of $A$ to the dimension $n$ and the norms of the matrices that witness the factorization of ${I}_{n}$ through $A$.
