Bounded and stably bounded palindromic difference
equations of first order
Leiba Rodman
Criteria for palindromic difference equations A*x_i + Ax_(i+1)=0,
where * stands for either transpose or conjugate transpose, to
have bounded or stably bounded solutions are given in terms
of the congruent equivalent classes of the matrix A. It is proved
that the set of bounded palindromic difference equations is
connected in the complex case, and has two connected components
corresponding to the sign of the determinant of A in the real case.
The connected components of the set of stably bounded palindromic
difference equations are characterized.
