Proof of a positivity conjecture of M. Kontsevich on non-commutative cluster variables. (English) Zbl 1266.16027
Summary: We prove a conjecture of Kontsevich, which asserts that the iterations of the non-commutative rational map \(F_r\colon(x,y)\to (xyx^{-1},(1+y^r)x^{-1})\) are given by non-commutative Laurent polynomials with non-negative integer coefficients.
