Overview

Nonnegative matrices (matrices with only positive numbers or zero as entries) arise in a variety of applications. This book provides an integrated approach to this area, emphasizing connections with game theory, combinatorics, optimization, mathematical programming, mathematical economics and statistics. The treatment is rigorous and almost all results are proved completely. Researchers in these areas will find many new results and applications in this book. The minimal prerequisites will also make it accessible to graduate students.
