Inverses and determinants of Toeplitz-Hessenberg matrices. (English) Zbl 1403.15021

Summary: The inverses of Toeplitz-Hessenberg matrices are investigated. It is known that each inverse of such a matrix is a sum of a lower triangular matrix \(L\) and a matrix \(R\) of rank 1. The formulas of \(L\) and \(x\), \(y\) such that \(xy^T = R\) are derived. Using this result we propose an algorithm for inverting Toeplitz-Hessenberg matrices. Moreover, from the expression of the inverse a formula for the determinant is deduced.
