On the Hermitian positive definite solution of the nonlinear matrix equation. (English) Zbl 1204.15023

The matrix equation X+ i=1 m A i * X -1 A i =I is considered, where A i n×n ,i=1,2,,m.

Some necessary and/or sufficient conditions are given for the existence of a Hermitian positive definite solution. For instance, Theorem 2.2 states that such solution exists if and only if all the matrices in the sequence {φ j (I)} j=0 are positive definite and the sequence {φ j (I) -1 } j=0 is uniformly bounded, where φ(X)=I- i=1 m A i * X -1 A i , φ 1 =φ and φ j+1 =φ(φ j ).

Two iterative algorithms are provided to determine the maximal positive definite solution.

Two examples illustrate the behaviour of the proposed algorithms.
