Abstract : The paper discusses the following problem: Find vectors w and z such that (1) w sub T = q + Mz; (2) wz = 0; (3) w, z = or > 0 where M is an nxn matrix and q is an nvector. Such problems have received extensive treatment in the case where M is positive semidefinite. We shall show here that certain simplifications are possible if, in addition, we assume that M can be obtained from a symmetric matrix by principal pivots. (Author)
