This paper considers a completion problem of a nonsingular block matrix over the real quaternion algebra : Let be nonnegative integers, , and be given. We determine necessary and sufficient conditions so that there exists a variant block entry matrix such that is nonsingular, and is the upper left block of a partitioning of . The general expression for is also obtained. Finally, a numerical example is presented to verify the theoretical findings.
