Abstract: In this paper, a characterization is given for matrices which preserve the Hardy-Littlewood-Pólya spectral order relation $ \prec $ for $ n$-vectors in $ {R^n}$. With this characterization, a new proof is given for the classical Muirhead theorem and some Muirhead-type inequalities are obtained. Moreover, sufficient conditions are also given for matrices which preserve the Hardy-Littlewood-Pólya weak spectral order relation $ \prec\prec$.
