An Algorithm for Calculating the QR and Singular Value Decompositions of Polynomial Matrices

This algorithm amounts to transforming a polynomial matrix to upper triangular form by application of a series of paraunitary matrices such as elementary delay and rotation matrices, and can be used to formulate the singular value decomposition (SVD) of a poynomial matrix.

Unitary Spaces on Clifford Algebras

Abstract.For the complex Clifford algebra (p, q) of dimension n = p + q we define a Hermitian scalar product. This scalar product depends on the signature (p, q) of Clifford algebra. So, we arrive at

Universal similarity factorization equalities over real Clifford algebras

A variety of universal similarity factorization equalities over real Clifford algebrasRp,q are established. On the basis of these equalities, real, complex and quaternion matrix representations of

An EVD Algorithm for Para-Hermitian Polynomial Matrices

An algorithm for computing the eigenvalue decomposition of a para-Hermitian polynomial matrix by means of a paraunitary "similarity" transformation constitutes a generalization of the classical Jacobi algorithm for conventional Hermitian matrix diagonalization.

Algebras having bases that consist solely of units

Algebras having bases that consist entirely of units (called invertible algebras) are studied. Among other results, it is shown that all finite-dimensional algebras over a field other than the binary

Unitary Error Bases: Constructions, Equivalence, and Applications

This work gives an explicit counterexample in dimension 165 which has been constructed with the help of a computer algebra system and answers the question whether each algebraic construction is equivalent to a combinatorial construction.


A proper twist on a group G is a function � : G × G 7→ {−1,1} with the property that, if p,q ∈ G then �(p,q)�(q,q 1) = �(pq,q 1) and �(p 1,p)�(p,q) = �(p 1,pq). The span V of a set of unit vectors B
