Some properties of Schur complements and diagonal-Schur complements of diagonally dominant matrices. (English) Zbl 1133.15020

The authors prove that the diagonal-Schur complement of a strictly doubly diagonally dominant matrix is a strictly generalized doubly diagonally dominant matrix. They provide the distribution of the real parts of eigenvalues of a diagonal-Schur complement of an \(H\)-matrix. They obtain a sufficient condition to ensure that the Schur complement of an \(r\)-diagonally dominant matrix is \(r\)-diagonally dominant.
