On solutions to the quaternion matrix equation AXB+CYD=E. (English) Zbl 1154.15019

Authors’ summary: “Expressions, as well as necessary and sufficient conditions are given for the existence of the real and pure imaginary solutions to the consistent quaternion matrix equation AXB+CYD=E. Formulas are established for the extreme ranks of real matrices X i ,Y i ,i=1,,4, in a solution pair X=X 1 +X 2 i+X 3 j+X 4 k and Y=Y 1 +Y 2 i+Y 3 j+Y 4 k to this equation. Moreover, necessary and sufficient conditions are derived for all solution pairs X and Y of this equation to be real or pure imaginary, respectively. Some known results can be regarded as special cases of the results in this paper.”

One of the main techniques used is the embedding of the space of quaternion matrices into the space of real matrices.
