On the symmetric solutions of linear matrix equations. (English) Zbl 0712.15009

Necessary and sufficient conditions are given for the existence of symmetric solutions of the matrix equations \(AX=C\) and \(AXB=C\) on the real field, in terms of the singular value decomposition of A and the generalized singular value decomposition of the pair \((A,B^ T)\), respectively. Expressions for the general solution are provided for each case.
