Abstract: The Riccati matrix equation has been the subject of several recent papers. In the present paper, the solution to this equation is approximated by a sequence of matrices whose elements are rational functions. It is shown that the sequence converges uniformly to the solution. Furthermore, each element of the sequence is constructed from a matrix polynomial which is in a sense the best approximation to the solution of the linear system associated with the Riccati matrix equation.
