Resumen:
Given an $r\times r$ complex matrix $T$, if $T=U|T|$ is the polardecomposition of $T$, then, the Aluthge transform is defined by $$\Delta\left(T \right)= |T|^{1/2} U |T |^{1/2}.$$ Let $\Delta^{n}(T)$ denote the $n$-times iterated Aluthge transform of $T$, i.e.$\Delta^{0}(T)=T$ and $\Delta^{n}(T)=\Delta(\Delta^{n-1}(T))$, $n\in\mathbb{N}$. We prove that the sequence $\{\Delta^{n}(T)\}_{n\in\mathbb{N}}$ converges for every $r\times r$  matrix $T$. This result was conjectured by Jung, Ko and Pearcy in 2003. We also analyze the regularity of the limit function.
