Hadamard powers of some positive matrices
by
Tanvi Jain
Positivity properties of the Hadamard powers of the matrix $\begin{bmatrix}1+x_ix_j\end{bmatrix}$ for distinct positive real numbers $x_1,\ldots,x_n$ and the matrix $\begin{bmatrix}|\cos((i-j)\pi/n)|\end{bmatrix}$ are studied. In particular, it is shown that $\begin{bmatrix}(1+x_ix_j)^r\end{bmatrix}$ is not positive semidefinite for any positive real number \$r
