A canonical form for matrices under consimilarity. (English) Zbl 0657.15008
Complex n×n matrices A, B are said to be consimilar if B=S -1 AS ¯ for some non-singular complex matrix S. This concept arises naturally from comparing the expressions for a semilinear transformation on an n-dimensional complex vector space in two different coordinate systems. The present paper gives a detailed survey, with an extensive bibliography, of the known results on consimilarity. A canonical form for A under consimilarity, closely related to the usual Jordan normal form for AA ¯, is described in section 3. Various applications are given in section 4. For example (Theorem 4.5), A and B are consimilar if, and only if, (a) AA ¯ and BB ¯ are similar and (b) A,AA ¯,AA ¯A,··· have the same respective ranks as B,BB ¯,BB ¯B,···. Again, it is noted that A is consimilar to A ¯, A and A * , and that every matrix is consimilar both to a real matrix and to a Hermitian matrix. Altogether, this is a useful and clearly written survey.
