matrix type

The matrix type of matrix A.

Specifying the matrix type allows this node to execute more quickly by avoiding unnecessary computations, which could introduce numerical inaccuracy.

Name Value Description
General 0 A matrix that you cannot describe with one of the other categories.
Upper Triangular 3 An upper triangular.

Default: Upper Triangular

datatype_icon

matrix A

Matrix A in the Lyapunov equation.

This input accepts a 2D array of double-precision, floating point numbers or 2D array of complex double-precision, floating point numbers.

This input must be a square matrix or upper quasi-triangular matrix in canonical Schur form.

datatype_icon

matrix B

Matrix B in the Lyapunov equation.

This input accepts a 2D array of double-precision, floating point numbers or 2D array of complex double-precision, floating point numbers.

datatype_icon

equation type

Type of Lyapunov equation.

Name Value Description
Continuous 0 Solves the continuous Lyapunov equation.
Discrete 1 Solves the discrete Lyapunov equation.

Default: Continuous

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

matrix X

Solution to the Lyapunov equation.

datatype_icon

scale

Scaling factor of the Lyapunov equation.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Solving Lyapunov Matrix Equations

The following equation defines the continuous Lyapunov equation:

AX + XAH = αB

where AH is the conjugate transpose of A and α is a scaling factor used to avoid overflow in X.

The continuous Lyapunov equation has a unique solution if and only if λi + λ*j ≠ 0 for all eigenvalues of A, where λ* is the complex conjugate of λ.

The following equation defines the discrete Lyapunov equation:

AXAH - X = αB

where AH is the conjugate transpose of A and alpha is a scaling factor used to avoid overflow in X.

The discrete Lyapunov equation has a unique solution if and only if λiλ*j ≠ 1 for all eigenvalues of A, where λ* is the complex conjugate of λ.
