After a brief historical review and an account of the canonical forms attributed to Jordan and Kronecker, a systematic development is made of the simultaneous reduction of pairs of quadratic forms over the complex numbers and over the reals. These reductions are by strict equivalence and by congruence, and essentially complete proofs are by: Canonical forms are described for pairs of quaternionic matrices, or equivalently matrix pencils, where each one of the matrices is either hermitian or skew-hermitian, under strict equivalence and Author: Leiba Rodman. Equivalence of two pairs of matrices: Canonical forms of a pair of bilinear forms: Pencils of bilinear forms: The nth roots of a matrix: Equivalence of pairs of quadratic or Hermitian forms, or symmetric or Hermitian bilinear forms: Pairs involving alternate forms: Existence of a pair of quadratic or Hermitian forms with any preassigned Author: Leonard Dickson. Canonical forms are given for pairs of quaternionic matrices, or equivalently matrix pencils, with various symmetry properties, under strict equivalence and symmetry respecting congruence. Symmetry properties are induced by involutory antiautomorphisms of the quaternions which are different from the quaternionic by: 9.
Reduction of binary cubic and quartic forms there will be two equivalent reduced forms (di ering only in the sign of b). This non-uniqueness, which could of course be avoided by insisting that b> 0 when either equality holds, will not be at all important in the sequel. To reduce a given form, we may choose to operate directly on the coe cientsFile Size: KB. BARBARA A. LI SANTI AND ROBERT C. THOMPSON More precisely, we study ordered pairs (S, H) of square matrices, where S is (complex) skew symmetric and H is (complex) Hermitian, under the action of the equivalence relation that pairs (S,, H,) and (S,, H,) are equiva- lent if and only if there exists a complex nonsingular matrix T such that.

A mathematical concept is independent of the symbol chosen to represent it. For many of the symbols below, the symbol is usually synonymous with the corresponding concept (ultimately an arbitrary choice made as a result of the cumulative history of mathematics), but in.
