The property of almost monotonicity for the non-singular irreducible
M-matrix is specified.
In its existing form the property means that the result of application
of the above matrix to a vector is either the zero vector or
a vector with at least one component positive and one component
In this paper the positive and the negative components are explicitly
As an application, a criterion of Pareto-extremality for
a vector function with essentially non-negative matrix of partial
derivatives is derived.
The criterion is a counterpart of the classical Fermat theorem on
vanishing of the derivative in an extremal point of a function.
The proofs are based on geometric properties of
