Abstract If f is a positive function on (0, ∞) which is monotone of order n for every n in the sense of Lowner and if Φ1 and Φ2 are concave maps among positive definite matrices, then the following map involving tensor products: (A,B)↦f[Φ 1 (A) −1 ⊗Φ 2 (B)]·(Φ 1 (A)⊗I) is proved to be concave. If Φ1 is affine, it is proved without use of positivity that the map (A,B)↦f[Φ 1 (A)⊗Φ 2 (B) −1 ]·(Φ 1 (A)⊗I) is convex. These yield the concavity of the map (A,B)↦A 1−p ⊗B p (0 (A,B)↦A 1+p ⊗B −p (0 (A,B… Expand

Convex maps on Rn and positive definite matrices
We obtain several convexity statements involving positive definite matrices. In particular, if A,B , X ,Y are invertible matrices and A,B are positive, we show that the map (s, t ) 7→ Tr log(X∗As XExpand
Some results on matrix monotone functions
Abstract Let A and B be Hermitian matrices. We say that A⩾B if A−B is nonnegative definite. A function ƒ:(0,∞) → R is said to be matrix monotone (m.m.) if A⩾B⩾0 implies that ƒ(A) ⩾ ƒ(B) . MatrixExpand
