Remarks on Lipschitz properties of matrix groups actions

Leiba Rodman, William & Mary

Abstract

It is proved that a large class of matrix group actions, including joint similarity and congruence-like actions, as well as actions of the type of matrix equivalence, have local Lipschitz property. Under additional hypotheses, global Lipschitz property is proved. These results are specialized and applied to obtain local Lipschitz property of canonical bases of matrices that are selfadjoint in an indefinite inner product. Real, complex, and quaternionic matrices are considered. (C) 2010 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
