Hence, if F{s) does not have zeros on the extended imaginary axis, then rhpdeg[Fo(5)] = 0, so t h a t F~^{s) G RH^. 16 Let consider the functions s+ 1 Fi{s) and is neither (s + l ) / ( s imaginary ' ' s+1 ^3(5) are inner, whereas ^1(5), ^2(5) and ^5(5) are outer. The function ^4(5) inner nor outer. For this function, take ^4^(5) = (s — l ) / ( 5 + 1) and F40 = + 2), so that ^4(5) == F4i(s)F4o(s). Since F[s) has no zeros on the extended axis, the function FAO{S) admits as inverse an element of RHooD Another meaningful subspace of RLoo is now defined.

A particular case occurs when an operator T : X ^ X coincides with its adjoint. In this case T is said to be self-adjoint. For example, the operator T'^T is self-adjoint: its eigenvalues, if any, are real and nonnegative. 8 Functional spaces of rational matrices The present book often refers to some functional spaces whose elements are proper rational matrices endowed with peculiar properties.

Recall that the symbol """' denotes the operation of conjugate transposition. The norm adopted for vectors is the one induced by the usual inner product in C^. 15 (Singular values of a matrix) Let A he a n x m complex matrix. The square roots ai{A)^i — l , - - - m of the eigenvalues of A^A are called singular values of A. • Notice that the singular values of A are real and nonnegative, since A'^A is a hermitian and positive semidefinite matrix. Of course, m—rank [A] singular values of A are in fact zero.
