Abstract. Let n ∈ N and Mn be the algebra of n × n matrices. We call a function f matrix monotone of order n or n-monotone in short whenever the inequality f(a) ≤ f(b) holds for every pair of selfadjoint matrices a, b ∈ Mn such that a ≤ b and all eigenvalues of a and b are contained in I. Matrix convex (concave) functions on I are similarily defined. The spaces for n-monotone functions and n-conve
