Let μ be a probability measure on Borel subsets of d × d non-negative matrices. Let S be the closed (multiplicative) semigroup generated by the support of μ, Sμ. Let the minimal rank of the matrices in S be 2. Then, we obtain necessary and sufficient conditions for weak convergence of μn in terms of cyclicity of Sμ — a concept first introduced in the work of Chakraborty and Rao (1998, Sankhyā A).
