### Solving Problem: LMIs and block matrices

I have been reading through this paper (https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/7995739) where I am stuck with this particular LMI. If you are familiar with control theory, the author is trying to find ...

### Linear matrix inequality

I have the following linear matrix inequality: $$F^T P + PF < 0,$$ where $P$ is a positive definite matrix and $F$ is a matrix with appropriate dimension. Let $Q$ be a positive definite matrix ...
$K>0\in \mathbb{R}^{n\times n}$, $P>0 \in \mathbb{R}^{n\times n}$ are diagonal positive definite matrices. And $R\geq 0\in \mathbb{R}^{m\times m}$ is positive semi-definite matrix. Let $B\in \... 2answers 89 views ### Why two matrix sets defined by such LMI are equivalent? Suppose$\{(x_1,x_2) : x_1^2+x_2^2 = 1\}$the unit circle. Consider two sets defined by a quadratic constraint and LMI: $$\{Y\in R^{2\times 2}: \begin{bmatrix}x_1 & x_2 \end{bmatrix}\... 2answers 278 views ### Is a spectrahedron's boundary almost always “smooth”? A spectrahedron is a convex set defined by a linear matrix inequality (LMI). Is the boundary of such a set almost always smooth? By "smooth" I mean that it admits a tangent hyperplane at any point ... 1answer 218 views ### Explicit formula for an LMI solution Suppose we have a linear matrix inequality (aka LMI aka spectahedron aka linear matrix pencil):$$A_{0}+x_{1}A_{1}+x_{2}A_{2}+\ldots+x_{m}A_{m} \succeq 0.$$(The notation$X \succeq Y$means that$X-...
I have an engineering problem that may be solved using semidefinite programming. I would like to know whether a given set is convex. Let $m \in \mathbb{R}^+$ be a positive real scalar, \$l \in \mathbb{...
