Hello, :)

I would like to minimize and find the zeros of the function F(S,P)=trace(S-SPí(A+ PSPí)^-1PS) in respect to S and P.

S is symmetric square matrix.
P is a rectangular matrix

Could you help me?
Thank you very much

All the best

Hello everybody,

Perhaps I should explain a little bit.

The aim is to minimize an error metric and preferentially drive it to zero.
This should be done as function of S and P, as function of their rank and dimensions in particular.
By the way, the matrix A is symmetric too.

Many thanks

Trying to update the equation presentation.

[tex] F(S,P)=tr(S-S P^T(A+PSP^T)^-1 PS) [/tex]

A is positive definite

I've using matrix derivatives

What do you think?

All the best

Matrix trace minimization and zeros

LateX didn't work here

How to present an equation here?

Thank you

Good Spirit
