Complete Factorization of Companion Based Matrix Functions
In this chapter results of the previous chapter are specified further for rational matrix functions of a special type, namely for the so-called companion based functions. These are characterized by the fact that they are rational matrix function having a minimal realization in which both the main matrix and the associate main matrix are (first) companions. A description of such functions is presented for the 2 × 2 case, and necessary and sufficient conditions are given for such functions to admit a complete factorization. The factorization results in this chapter are based on a detailed analysis of simultaneous reduction to complementary forms of pairs of companion matrices.
