Counterexamples to a conjecture of G. N. de Oliveira

Darald Joe Hartfiel

Vol. 38 (1971), No. 1, 67–68
Abstract

G. N. de Oliveira gives the following coniecture.

Conjecture. Let A be an n×n doubly stochastic irreducible matrix. If n is even, then f(z) = perm(Iz A) has no real roots; if n is odd, then f(z) = perm(Iz A) has one and only one real root.

In this paper we give counter examples to this conjecture.
