The max-algebraic core of a nonnegative matrix is the intersection of column spans of all max-algebraic matrix powers. This paper investigates the action of a matrix on its core. Being closely related to ultimate periodicity of matrix powers, this study leads to new modifications and geometric characterizations of robust, orbit periodic and weakly stable matrices
