Subadditivity Inequalities for Compact Operators Some subadditivity inequalities for matrices and concave functions also hold for Hilbert space operators, but (unfortunately!) with an additional $\varepsilon$ term. It seems not possible to erase this residual term. However, in case of compact operators we show that the $\varepsilon$ term is unnecessary. Further, these inequalities are strict in a certain sense when some natural assumptions are satisfied. The discussion also stresses on matrices and their compressions and several open questions or conjectures are considered, both in the matrix and operator settings.

The Structure of the Unit Group of the Group Algebra ${\mathbb{F}}_{2^k}D_{8}$
Let $RG$ denote the group ring of the group $G$ over
the ring $R$. Using an isomorphism between $RG$ and a
certain ring of $n \times n$ matrices in conjunction with other
techniques, the structure of the unit group of the group algebra
of the dihedral group of order $8$ over any
finite field of chracteristic $2$ is determined in
terms of split extensions of cyclic groups.

On Functions Whose Graph is a Hamel Basis, II We say that a function $h \from \real \to \real$ is a Hamel function
($h \in \ham$) if $h$, considered as a subset of $\real^2$, is a Hamel
basis for $\real^2$. We show that $\A(\ham)\geq\omega$, \emph{i.e.,} for
every finite $F \subseteq \real^\real$ there exists $f\in\real^\real$
such that $f+F \subseteq \ham$. From the previous work of the author
it then follows that $\A(\ham)=\omega$.

On the Spectrum of an $n!\times n!$ Matrix Originating from Statistical Mechanics Let $R_n(\alpha)$ be the $n!\times n!$ matrix whose matrix elements
$[R_n(\alpha)]_{\sigma\rho}$, with $\sigma$ and $\rho$ in the
symmetric group $\sn$, are $\alpha^{\ell(\sigma\rho^{-1})}$ with
$0<\alpha<1$, where $\ell(\pi)$ denotes the number of cycles in $\pi\in
\sn$. We give the spectrum of $R_n$ and show that the ratio of the
largest eigenvalue $\lambda_0$ to the second largest one (in absolute
value) increases as a positive power of $n$ as $n\rightarrow \infty$.

spaces are obtained.

Correction to a Theorem on Total Positivity A well-known theorem states that if $f(z)$ generates a PF$_r$
sequence then $1/f(-z)$ generates a PF$_r$ sequence. We give two
counterexamples
which show that this is not true, and give a correct version of the theorem.
In the infinite limit the result is sound: if $f(z)$ generates a PF
sequence then $1/f(-z)$ generates a PF sequence.

On the Relation Between the Gaussian Orthogonal Ensemble and Reflections, or a Self-Adjoint Version of the Marcus--Pisier Inequality |
On the Relation Between the Gaussian Orthogonal Ensemble and Reflections, or a Self-Adjoint Version of the Marcus--Pisier Inequality We prove a self-adjoint analogue of the Marcus--Pisier inequality, comparing the
expected value of convex functionals on randomreflection matrices and on elements of
the Gaussian orthogonal (or unitary) ensemble.

Diagonal Plus Tridiagonal Representatives for Symplectic Congruence Classes of Symmetric Matrices Let $n=2m$ be even and denote by $\Sp_n(F)$ the symplectic group
of rank $m$ over an infinite field $F$ of characteristic different
from $2$. We show that any $n\times n$ symmetric matrix $A$ is
equivalent under symplectic congruence transformations to the
direct sum of $m\times m$ matrices $B$ and $C$, with $B$ diagonal
and $C$ tridiagonal. Since the $\Sp_n(F)$-module of symmetric
$n\times n$ matrices over $F$ is isomorphic to the adjoint module
$\sp_n(F)$, we infer that any adjoint orbit of $\Sp_n(F)$ in
$\sp_n(F)$ has a representative in the sum of $3m-1$ root spaces,
which we explicitly determine.

Continuous Adjacency Preserving Maps on Real Matrices It is proved that every adjacency preserving continuous map
on the vector space of real matrices of fixed size, is either a
bijective affine tranformation
of the form $ A \mapsto PAQ+R$, possibly followed by the transposition if
the matrices are of square size, or its range is contained
in a linear subspace consisting of matrices of rank at most one
translated by some matrix $R$. The result
extends previously known
theorems where the map was assumed to be also injective.

Systems of Hermitian Quadratic Forms In this paper, we give some conditions to judge when a system of
Hermitian quadratic forms has a real linear combination which is
positive definite or positive semi-definite. We also study some
related geometric and topological properties of the moduli space.

Some Questions about Semisimple Lie Groups Originating in Matrix Theory We generalize the well-known result that a square traceless complex
matrix is unitarily similar to a matrix with zero diagonal to
arbitrary connected semisimple complex Lie groups $G$ and their Lie
algebras $\mathfrak{g}$ under the action of a maximal compact subgroup
$K$ of $G$. We also introduce a natural partial order on
$\mathfrak{g}$: $x\le y$ if $f(K\cdot x) \subseteq f(K\cdot y)$ for
all $f\in \mathfrak{g}^*$, the complex dual of $\mathfrak{g}$. This
partial order is $K$-invariant and induces a partial order on the
orbit space $\mathfrak{g}/K$. We prove that, under some restrictions
on $\mathfrak{g}$, the set $f(K\cdot x)$ is star-shaped with respect
to the origin.

Linear Maps Transforming the Unitary Group Let $U(n)$ be the group of $n\times n$ unitary matrices. We show that if
$\phi$ is a linear transformation sending $U(n)$ into $U(m)$, then $m$ is
a multiple of $n$, and $\phi$ has the form
$$
A \mapsto V[(A\otimes I_s)\oplus (A^t \otimes I_{r})]W
$$
for some $V, W \in U(m)$. From this result, one easily deduces the
characterization of linear operators that map $U(n)$ into itself obtained
by Marcus. Further generalization of the main theorem is also discussed.

Linear Operators Preserving Generalized Numerical Ranges and Radii on Certain Triangular Algebras of Matrices |
Linear Operators Preserving Generalized Numerical Ranges and Radii on Certain Triangular Algebras of Matrices Let $c = (c_1, \dots, c_n)$ be such that $c_1 \ge \cdots \ge c_n$.
The $c$-numerical range of an $n \times n$ matrix $A$ is defined by
$$
W_c(A) = \Bigl\{ \sum_{j=1}^n c_j (Ax_j,x_j) : \{x_1, \dots, x_n\}
\text{ an orthonormal basis for } \IC^n \Bigr\},
$$
and the $c$-numerical radius of $A$ is defined by $r_c (A) = \max
\{|z| : z \in W_c (A)\}$. We determine the structure of those linear
operators $\phi$ on algebras of block triangular matrices, satisfying
$$
W_c \bigl( \phi(A) \bigr) = W_c (A) \text{ for all } A \quad \text{or}
\quad r_c \bigl( \phi(A) \bigr) = r_c (A) \text{ for all } A.

Nonconvexity of the Generalized Numerical Range Associated with the Principal Character Suppose $m$ and $n$ are integers such that $1 \le m \le n$. For a
subgroup $H$ of the symmetric group $S_m$ of degree $m$, consider
the {\it generalized matrix function} on $m\times m$ matrices $B =
(b_{ij})$ defined by $d^H(B) = \sum_{\sigma \in H} \prod_{j=1}^m
b_{j\sigma(j)}$ and the {\it generalized numerical range} of an
$n\times n$ complex matrix $A$ associated with $d^H$ defined by
$$
\wmp(A) = \{d^H (X^*AX): X \text{ is } n \times m \text{ such that }
X^*X = I_m\}.
$$
It is known that $\wmp(A)$ is convex if $m = 1$ or if $m = n = 2$.
We show that there exist normal matrices $A$ for which $\wmp(A)$ is
not convex if $3 \le m \le n$. Moreover, for $m = 2 < n$, we prove
that a normal matrix $A $ with eigenvalues lying on a straight line
has convex $\wmp(A)$ if and only if $\nu A$ is Hermitian for some
nonzero $\nu \in \IC$. These results extend those of Hu, Hurley
and Tam, who studied the special case when $2 \le m \le 3 \le n$
and $H = S_m$.

Minimal pencil realizations of rational matrix functions with symmetries A theory of minimal realizations of rational matrix functions $W(\lambda)$
in the ``pencil'' form $W(\lambda)=C(\lambda A_1-A_2)^{-1}B$ is developed.
In particular, properties of the pencil $\lambda A_1-A_2$ are discussed when
$W(\lambda)$ is hermitian on the real line, and when $W(\lambda)$ is
hermitian on the unit circle.
