SLICOT Working Note 2004-1: September 2004.

We discuss solvers for Sylvester, Lyapunov, and Stein equations that are available in the SLICOT Library. These solvers offer improved efficiency, reliability, and functionality compared to corresponding solvers in other computer-aided control system design packages. The performance of the SLICOT solvers is compared with the corresponding MATLAB solvers. This note can also serve as a guide to the SLICOT and SLICOT-based MATLAB solvers for Linear Matrix Equations.
