Fully Indecomposable Exponents of Primitive Matrices

Abstract

If A is a primitive matrix, then there is a smallest power of A (its fully indecomposable exponent) that is fully indecomposable, and a smallest power of A (its strict fully indecomposable exponent) starting from which all powers are fully indecomposable. We obtain bounds on these two exponents.
