lyapchol

Square-root solver for continuous-time Lyapunov equation

Syntax

R = lyapchol(A,B)
X = lyapchol(A,B,E)

Description

R = lyapchol(A,B) computes a Cholesky factorization X = R'*R of the solution X to the Lyapunov matrix equation:

A*X + X*A' + B*B' = 0

All eigenvalues of matrix A must lie in the open left half-plane for R to exist.

X = lyapchol(A,B,E) computes a Cholesky factorization X = R'*R of X solving the generalized Lyapunov equation:

A*X*E' + E*X*A' + B*B' = 0

All generalized eigenvalues of (A,E) must lie in the open left half-plane for R to exist.

Algorithms

lyapchol uses SLICOT routines SB03OD and SG03BD.
