Abstract

Some of authors' recent study shows that the time evolution of the integrable ultradiscrete Toda equation computes eigenvalue of tridiagonal matrices over min-plus algebra, where min-plus algebra is a semiring with two binary operations: ⊕ : = min and ⊗ : = +. In this paper, we rst present a Backlund transformation between the ultradiscrete Toda equation and the ultradiscrete Lotka-Volterra system. Using the Backlund transformation, we show that the ultradiscrete Lotka-Volterra system can also compute eigenvalue of symmetric tridiagonal matrices over min-plus algebra.
