Abstract: Let be a nonnegative real matrix which is expanding, i.e. with all eigenvalues , and suppose that is an integer. Let consist of exactly nonnegative vectors in . We classify all pairs such that every in the orthant has at least one radix expansion in base using digits in . The matrix must be a diagonal matrix times a permutation matrix. In addition must be similar to an integer matrix, but need not be an integer matrix. In all cases the digit set can be diagonally scaled to lie in . The proofs generalize a method of Odlyzko, previously used to classify the one--dimensional case.
