On the Algebra of L-Matrices

  • Alladi Ramakrishnan


There is a singular appropriateness in discussing the algebra of L-matrices in this symposium in which Professor R. H. Good is one of principal participants. For it was a seminar conducted almost twelve years ago, in Madras, on an interesting paper of Professor Good on the gamma matrices which started an investigation that culminated in the present theory of L-matrices which include the gamma matrices within their structure.
