Note: Comparing properties of M-matrices with those of positive deﬁnite matrices reveals many parallels, and, in a rough sense, an M-matrix often plays the role of “a poor man’s positive deﬁnite matrix.” Only a small sample of M-matrix theory has been presented here, but there is in fact enough to ﬁll a monograph on the subject. For example, there are at least 50 known equivalent conditions that can be imposed on a real matrix with nonpositive oﬀ-diagonal entries (often called a Z-matrix) to guarantee that it is an M-matrix—see Exercise 7.10.12 for a sample of such conditions in addition to those listed above.

Start from the fact that limk→∞ Ak exists if and only if limk→∞ Jk exists for each Jordan block in (7.10.6). It’s clear from (7.10.7) that limk→∞ Jk cannot exist when |λ| > 1, and we already know the story for |λ| < 1, so we only have to examine the case when |λ| = 1. If |λ| = 1 with λ = 1 (i.e., λ = eiθ with 0 < θ < 2π ), then the diagonal terms λk oscillate indeﬁnitely, and this prevents Jk (and Ak ) from having a limit.

But λ = 1 may be repeated p times so that there are p Jordan blocks of the form J = [1]1×1 . Consequently, limk→∞ Ak exists if and only if the Jordan form for A has the structure Ip×p 0 0 K J = P−1 AP = IG R , where p = alg mult (1)...
