Low-rank iterative methods for projected generalized Lyapunov equations

Tatjana Stykel


We generalize an alternating direction implicit method and the Smith method for large-scale projected generalized Lyapunov equations. Such equations arise in model reduction of descriptor systems. Low-rank versions of these methods are also presented, which can be used to compute low-rank approximations to the solution of projected generalized Lyapunov equations with low-rank symmetric, positive semidefinite right-hand side. Numerical examples are presented.
