A conjecture and some problems on permanents

Graciano de Oliveira

Vol. 32 (1970), No. 2, 495–499
Abstract

Let A = [aij] denote an n × n matrix and let E be the n × n identity matrix. We will designate by detA and perm A the determinant and the permanent of A respectively. The polynomial φ(z) = det(zE A) plays a fundamental role in matrix theory. Similarly we can consider the polynomial f(z) = perm (zE A) which has been object of several studies recently, particularly when A is a doubly stochastic matrix. The aim of the present paper is to give some results on the existence of matrices satisfying certain conditions involving the roots of this polynomial.
