## Symmetric and skew-antisymmetric solutions to systems of real quaternion matrix equations.(English)Zbl 1143.15012

Summary: We consider symmetric and skew-antisymmetric solutions to certain matrix equations over the real quaternion algebra $$H$$. First, a criterion for a quaternion matrix to be symmetric and skew-antisymmetric is given. Then, necessary and sufficient conditions are obtained for the matrix equation $$AX=C$$ and the following system
$A_1X=C_1, \qquad XB_3=C_3$
to have symmetric and skew-antisymmetric solutions. The expressions of such solutions of the matrix equation and the system mentioned above are also given.
