Abstract

This thesis shows that the number of (0,1)-matrices with n rows and k columns uniquely reconstructible from their row and column sums are the poly-Bernoulli numbers of negative index, B[subscript n superscript ( -k)] . Two proofs of this main theorem are presented giving a combinatorial bijection between two poly-Bernoulli formula found in the literature. Next, some connections to Fermat are proved showing that for a positive integer n and prime number p B[subscript n superscript ( -p) congruent 2 superscript n (mod p),] and that for all positive integers (x, y, z, n) greater than two there exist no solutions to the equation: B[subscript x superscript ( -n)] + B[subscript y superscript ( -n)] = B[subscript z superscript ( -n)]. In addition directed graphs with sum reconstructible adjacency matrices are surveyed, and enumerations of similar (0,1)-matrix sets are given as an appendix.
