Given two n×n real matrices, A and B, consider the matrix Riccati equation


Can one characterize the pairs (A, B) for which the above equation has a solution for positive definite symmetric matrices P, Q, and R?

In [8] a pair (A, B) was defined to be Riccati stable if a triple of positive definite matrices P, Q, R exists such that (1) holds.

The problem may be stated equivalently as an LMI:

Can one characterize all pairs (A, B) without ...
