Abstract: Let A be a nonsingular matrix with positive inverse and B a non-negative matrix. Let the inverse of $ A + vB$ be positive for $ 0 \leq v < {v^ \ast } < + \infty $ and at least one of its entries be equal to zero for $ v = {v^ \ast }$; an algorithm to compute $ {v^ \ast }$ is described in this paper. Furthermore, it is shown that if $ A + {A^{\text{T}}}$ is positive definite, then the inverse of $ A + v(B - {B^{\text{T}}})$ is positive for $ 0 \leq v < {v^ \ast }$.
