We study the indecomposability and isomorphism of objects from the category of monomial matrices Mmat(K) over a commutative local principal ideal ring K (whose objects are square monomial matrices and the morphisms from X to Y are matrices C such that XC = CY). We also study the subcategory Mmat0(K) of the category Mmat(K) with the same objects and solely with morphisms that are monomial matrices.
We give a complete description of real numbers that are P-limit numbers for integer-valued positive-definite quadratic forms with unit coefficients of the squares. It is shown that each of these P-limit numbers is realized in the Tits quadratic form of a certain Dynkin diagram.
We present the complete description of finite posets whose Tits form is not nonnegative but all proper subsets of which have nonnegative Tits forms. A similar result for positive forms was obtained by the authors earlier.
We study the relationship between the (min, max)-equivalence of posets and properties of their quadratic Tits form related to nonnegative definiteness. In particular, we prove that the Tits form of a poset S is nonnegative definite if and only if the Tits form of any poset (min, max)-equivalent to S is weakly nonnegative.
This study involved a theoretical analysis of definitions of sustainable development to identify the weights of different components, to assess what meanings are included in the term by different authors and communities, and to understand the role of managerial approaches in sustainable development. A principled managerial model of sustainable development is presented in which common purposes and...
