Abstract

We consider the iterative solution of a quadratic matrix equation with special coefficient matrices which arises in the quasibirth and death problem. In this paper, we show that the elementwise minimal positive solvent of the quadratic matrix equations can be obtained using Newton's method if there exists a positive solvent and the convergence rate of the Newton iteration is quadratic if the Frchet derivative at the elementwise minimal positive solvent is nonsingular. Although the Frchet derivative is singular, the convergence rate is at least linear. Numerical experiments of the convergence rate are given.
