Abstract: We discuss recent work on the zero/nonzero patterns that occur among n by n real orthogonal matrices. There is a universal necessary condition that is sufficient for n<5. But for n=5 there are 2 patterns that meet this condition and are not orthogonal. This is joint work with YuLin Zhang and Carla Ferreira.
