Thematic series on Recent Advances in Eigenvalues Estimates of Special Matrices

Journal of Inequalities and Applications welcomes submissions to the new thematic series for Recent Advances in Eigenvalues Estimates of Special Matrices. This thematic series is devoted to publish the latest and most significant results in eigenvalues estimates of special matrices (tensors). Its goals are to stimulate further research and to highlight recent advances in these fields as well as to promote, encourage, and bring together researchers in the fields of eigenvalues estimates of special matrices (tensors). In the last decade, spectral theory of matrices (tensors) and related topics emerged as a rapidly growing area of research because of its applications in computational mathematics, mathematical physics, mathematical economics, graph theory and wireless communications, etc.  In the recent past, many authors devoted their attention to study the spectral theory of matrices (tensors) and related topics, namely, the location (i.e., distribution, estimation and calculation) of the eigenvalues for tensors and its applications. Many new results, including theory, methods and applications, have been developed in recent years. This special issue aims to promote the exchange of ideas between researchers and to spread new trends in these areas. 

 The potential topics include, but are not limited to the following scopes:

  • Eigenvalue inclusion sets for matrices (tensors) and its applications
  • Estimates of spectral radius of nonnegative matrices (tensors)
  • Estimates of the minimum eigenvalue of M-matrices (tensors)
  • Estimates of the infinity norm of the inverse of M(Nekrasov)- matrices
  • The relationship between spectral radius and some norm of special tensors
  • Criteria or character for H(P)-matrices (tensors) and its application
  • Eigenvalue problems of structured matrices (tensors) optimization
  • Linear and nonlinear optimization
  • Numerical solution of nonlinear system with M-matrices and H-matrices
  • Linear systems with structured matrices, such as Toeplitz matrix and Hankel matrix
