The universal flip matrix and the generalized faro-shuffle

Robert E. Hartwig and S. Brent Morris

Vol. 58 (1975), No. 2, 445–455
Abstract

The permutation matrix P which flips a left direct product of two matrices into a right direct product is investigated on the basis of the generalized out faro-shuffle. Expressions are derived for the characteristic and minimal polynomials as well as the determinant and trace of P.
