Abstract: A matrix is called TP2 if all 1-by-1 and 2-by-2 minors are positive.
A TP2-completion of a partial TP2 matrix T, is a choice of values for the un-
specified entries of T so that the resulting matrix is TP2. The TP2-completion
problem asks which partial matrices have a TP2-completion. The Bruhat order on
permutations and the notion of majorization are generalized to partial orders on
nonnegative matrices. Using these partial orders and the Hadamard exponential
transformation, explicit conditions for TP2-completability of a given partial ma-
trix are given. The theory of cones and generators, and the logarithmic method
are used to reduce these conditions to a set of minimal conditions. It turns out
