The perturbation analysis of the differential for the Drazin inverse of the matrix-value function is investigated. An upper bound of the Drazin inverse and its differential is also considered. Applications to the perturbation bound for the solution of the matrix-value function coefficients some matrix equations are given.

1. Introduction

The Drazin inverse has been widely applied in the fields, like singular differential equations [1], linear operators theory analysis [2, 3], Markov chains [4], and so on. For the systems with a nonconstant coefficient, one required knowledge of how to differentiate the Drazin inverse as given in [5]. The necessary information for the derivative of the Drazin inverse is developed in [6]. Many results on perturbation analysis for the Drazin inverse of a matrix have been investigated in [710] and reference therein.

Let be the set of all complex matrix. For any , there exists a unique matrix such that [1] is called the Drazin inverse of , denoted by , where is the index of , and denoted by . The core-nilpotent decomposition of is , where is invertible and is a nilpotent matrix and as in [1]. Let be a set of the matrix-value function. For , the definition of the Moore-Penrose inverse for a matrix-valued function is given in [11]. For , the equations in (1) are extended to the Drazin inverse of a matrix-value function in [6]. For , then for all . The Drazin inverse of is defined by with as in [6] and the core-nilpotent decomposition of with is given as follows:where is a nonsingular matrix-value function, is nonsingular, and is nilpotent for all in (2), respectively. From (2), we easy have the Drazin inverse of the matrix-value function as follows:As [6], we haveFrom (3), we haveThe basic continuity properties of were developed in [12]. For a differentiable matrix-valued function , we denote by and by , respectively.

The perturbation bound theory of the Drazin inverse on Banach algebra is considered in [13]. For a matrix-value differentiable function, the derivative of the Drazin inverse is defined in [6]. In [12], Campbell et al. investigate the continuity properties of the Drazln inverse. They proved that a sequence of the Drazin inverse of matrix converges to if and only if there exists a such that core-rank = core-rank for . In [5], Campbell et al. considered the applications of the Drazin inverse to the differential equation . In [14], Kelly gave the results on the multivariate, real-valued functions on induced matrix-valued functions on the space of -tuples of pairwise-commuting self-adjoint matrices. Kelly also examined the geometry of this space of matrices and also concluded that the best notion of differentiation of these matrix functions is differentiation along curves in [14]. There are not some results on the perturbation analysis for the differential of the Drazin inverse of the matrix-value function . In this paper, we present some results of perturbation analysis for the differentiable of the Drazin inverse of the matrix-value function with respect to an interval for any complex numbers . We will also consider the perturbation bound theory for the Drazin inverse of a matrix-value function .
