Let F be a set of k by k nonnegative matrices such that every “long” product of elements of F is positive. Cohen and Sellers (1982) proved that, then, every such product of length 2k−2 over F must be positive. They suggested to investigate the minimum size of such F for which there exists a non-positive product of length 2k−3 over F and they constructed one… CONTINUE READING
