Abstract : Let A be an m x n matrix over nonnegative integers. The isolation number of A is the maximum number of isolated entries in A. We investigate linear operators that preserve the isolation number of matrices over nonnegative integers. We obtain that T is a linear operator that strongly preserve isolation number k if and only if T is a (P,Q)-operator, that is, for fixed permutation matrices P and Q, m x n matrix A, T(A) = PAQ or, m=n and T(A) = PA^t Q where A^t is the transpose of A.
Keywords : Isolation number, upper ideal, linear operator, (P,Q)-operator.
