**Abstract**

In this paper, we study some kinds of majorizations on $\textbf{M}_{n}$ and their linear or strong linear preservers. Also, we find the structure of linear or strong linear preservers which are multiplicative, i.e. linear or strong linear preservers like $\Phi $ with the property $\Phi (AB)=\Phi (A)\Phi (B)$ for every $A,B\in \textbf{M}_{n}$.
