Abstract: Motivated by symbolic dynamics, we study the problem, given a unital subring $ S$ of the reals, when is a matrix $ A$ algebraically shift equivalent over $ S$ to a primitive matrix? We conjecture that simple necessary conditions on the nonzero spectrum of $ A$ are sufficient, and establish the conjecture in many cases. If $ S$ is the integers, we give some lower bounds on sizes of realizing primitive matrices. For Dedekind domains, we prove that algebraic shift equivalence implies algebraic strong shift equivalence.
