Extension and generalization inequalities involving the Khatri-Rao product of several positive matrices

Abstract

Recently, there have been many authors, who established a number of inequalities involving Khatri-Rao and Hadamard products of two positive matrices. In this paper, the results are established in the following three ways. First, we find generalization of the inequalities involving Khatri-Rao product using results given by Liu (1999), Mond and Pečarić (1997), Cao et al. (2002), Chollet (1997), and Visick (2000). Second, we recover and develop some results of Visick. Third, the results are extended to the case of Khatri-Rao product of any finite number of matrices. These results lead to inequalities involving Hadamard product, as a special case.
