Clarification needed[edit]

Your recent article appears to require more clarification. The example you give does not seem to match the definition of a balanced matrix given here. I'm no mathematician, but it does appear that your examples are only a subset of the realm of balanced matrices. Also, your article should not only define what a balanced matrix is, but it should give some indication as to why they are important, and to the history of their discovery and development.

hello, my definition deals only with a special case of the balanced matricies in which the matrix is composed of only ones and zeros, and am unfamiliar with balanced matricies that have other integer values. I'm only studying for this specific type as they are necessary in dealing with linear program and i'm not sure if non zero-one matricies are any useful (and i dont know anything about it). In this case, how should I form this article?

Oh and thanks for the welcome! I'm still trying to get used to these wiki syntaxes and tags

I would begin by noting the general definition of the balanced matrix given in the reference I provided, followed by a discussion of (0,1) balanced matrices as a special case. The uses (applications) of the special (0,1) case should be discussed. I have also found references to a (0, ±1) balanced matrix; I don't know if this is related to the special case you are discussing. Finally, you should note that the proper plural of matrix is matrices, not "matricies" as you have been typing. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 15:59, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
