Abstract

In this chapter we give a simple and straightforward treatment of the spectral factorization problem of a positive operator Ω∈X into Ω = W*W, where WiU is outer. We only consider the case where Ω is a strictly positive operator and where its causal part is bounded and has a u.e. stable realization. This leads to a recursive Riccati equation with time-varying coefficients for which the minimal positive definite solution leads to the outer factor. The theory also includes a formulation of a time-varying (strictly-) positive real lemma. In addition, we provide connections with related problems discussed in previous chapters in which Riccati equations appear as well, such as inner-outer factorization and orthogonal embedding. The results can no doubt be formulated in a more general way where strict positivity is not assumed, but we consider these extensions as laying outside the scope of the book.
