ABSTRACT

For, if the sum of the elements in each row and the sum of the elements in each column are both equal to 0, then A is called an indeterminate admittance matrix. If A is an indeterminate admittance matrix and a Hermitian matrix, then A is called a Hermitian indeterminate admittance matrix. In this paper, we provide two methods to study the least squares Hermitian indeterminate admittance problem of complex matrix equation, and give the explicit expressions of least squares Hermitian indeterminate admittance solution with the least norm in each method. We mainly adopt the Moore-Penrose generalized inverse and Kronecker product in Method I and a matrix-vector product in Method II, respectively.

**Keywords:**

Matrix Equation, Least Squares Solution, Least Norm Solution, Hermitian Indeterminate Admittance Matrices

Direct and iterative methods on solving the matrix equations associated with the constrained matrix (such as Hermitian matrix, anti-Hermitian matrix, bisymmetric matrix, reflexive matrix) sets have been widely investigated. See [5] - [25] and references cited therein. Yuan, Liao and Lei [1] derived the least squares symmetric solution with the least norm of real matrix equation by using the vec-operator, Kronecker product and the Moore-Penrose generalized inverse. In order to avoid the difficulties of the coefficient matrices with large size from the Kronecker product, Yuan and Liao [26] recently improved this method, defined a matrix-vector product, and successfully carried out a special vectorization of the matrix equation to derive the least squares Hermitian solution with the least norm. Based on these methods, we continue to study Problem I in this paper.

We now briefly introduce the contents of our paper. In Section 2, by using the Moore-Penrose generalized inverse and the Kronecker product, we derive the least squares Hermitian indeterminate admittance solution with the least norm for the complex matrix Equation (5). In Section 3, we firstly discuss a class of linear least squares problem in Hilbert inner product, and analysis a matrix-vector product of. Then we present the explicit expression of the solution for the complex matrix Equation (5) by using the method.
