Construction of real antisymmetric and bi-antisymmetric matrices with prescribed spectrum data. (English) Zbl 1069.15013

The author establishes some sufficient conditions on a given set of pure imaginary numbers for the existence of a real skew-symmetric matrix whose leading principal submatrices have prescribed eigenvalues from the set, and for the existence of a real centrosymmetric skew-symmetric matrix (which the author calls a “bi-antisymmetric matrix”) whose central submatrices have prescribed eigenvalues from the set.
