Author’s abstract: “We consider the nonlinear matrix equation where is positive (resp. semidefinite) definite and the ’s are arbitrary (resp. nonsingular) matrices. We prove that if , then the equation has a unique positive definite solution which is realized as the unique fixed point of a strict contraction with the Lipschitz constant less than or equal to . Furthermore, we show that the solution map varying over the determining coefficient matrices is continuous.”
