Given are two square matrices of the same dimension, M and N.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

M is symmetric. N is non singular.

From M and N form the symmetric matrix,

M N

N* 0

Where N* is the transpose of N.

Is the signature of this matrix necessarily zero? Counterexample?
