    The matrices which are symmetric about both diagonals (persymmetric matrices) occur often in communication and information theory problems. There have been a number of problems whose solution involves the eigenvectors of persymmetric matrices. This paper summarizes a number of properties of the eigenvectors of persymmetric matrices and demonstrates how they can be applied to characterize and simplify the solution to a number of communication problems.
