Applicable Course(s): 3.7 Discrete Math | 3.8 Linear/Matrix Algebra

The author discusses the relationship of two well-known, apparently unrelated supermultiplicative functions of nonnegative matrices, and shows they are special cases of a more general supermultiplicative function. An application to products of random matrices is sketched.
