A reduction technique for discrete generalized algebraic and difference Riccati equations
Abstract
This paper proposes a reduction technique for the generalized Riccati difference equation arising in optimal control and optimal filtering. This technique relies on a study on the generalized discrete algebraic Riccati equation. In particular, an analysis on the eigenstructure of the corresponding extended symplectic pencil enables to identify a subspace in which all the solutions of the generalized discrete algebraic Riccati equation are coincident. This subspace is the key to derive a decomposition technique for the generalized Riccati difference equation. This decomposition isolates a “nilpotent” part, which converges to a steadystate solution in a finite number of steps, from another part that can be computed by iterating a reducedorder generalized Riccati difference equation.
