Abstract

We consider the solution of (*) XA+BX = C for bounded operators A,B,C and X on a Hilbert space, A normal. We establish the existence of a polynomial p and a bounded operator W with the property that the unique solution X of (*) also solves X − p(−B)Xp(A)−1 = W uniquely. A known iterative algorithm can be applied to the latter equation to solve (*).
