Keyword(s): topical function; cycle time vector; matrix D-A-D problem; nonexpansive map

Abstract: Please Note. This abstract contains mathematical formulae which cannot be represented here. It is of interest to find conditions under which the cycle time vector, ? (F) = limk?8 (Fk (x)/k) Rn, of a topical function F, that is a function from Rn into itself which is homogenous and nonexpansive in the l8 norm, exists. For a class of topical functions associated with matrix scaling problems, we show that the cycle time vector exists and that it can be computed from the spectral radius of the function.
