Maximal invariant neutral subspaces and an application to the algebraic Riccati equation

  • Leiba Rodman


For a matrix A which is selfadjoint with respect to an indefinite scalar product, a description of maximal A-invariant neutral subspaces is provided. This description is motivated by the characterization of hermitian solutions of an algebraic Riccati equation.
