It is shown that (a weak version of) the Hawkins-Simon condition is satisfied by any real square matrix which is inverse-positive after a suitable permutation of columns or rows. One more characterization of inverse-positive matrices is given concerning the Le Chatelier-Braun principle. The proofs are all simple and elementary.
Light trapped within luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs) is naturally limited in angular extent by the total internal reflection critical angle, θcrit, and hence the principles of nonimaging optics can be leveraged to increase LSC concentration ratio by appropriately reshaping the edges. Here, we use rigorous ray-tracing simulations to explore the(More)
A social welfare function for a denumerable society satisfies Pairwise Computability if for each pair (x;y) of alternatives, there exists an algorithm that can decide from any description of each profile on fx;yg whether the society prefers x to y. I prove that if a social welfare function satisfying Unanimity and Independence also satisfies Pairwise(More)
