Abstract : For every orthonornal matrix X there exists a skew-symmetric matrix N such that X = (I-N)/(I+N), provided that 1/(I+N) exists. A matrix K, similar to N, can be defined for biorthonormal matrices U and V such that U = (I-K)/(I+K), provided that 1/(I+K) exists. Numerical methods are presented for examination of the properties of K. The particular property anticipated for K, that it exhibit n(n-1) basic parameters inherent in biorthonormal matrices, is not apparent in the numerical examples derived. (Author)
