Abstract: A least-square method is described for obtaining the solutions $ A$ and $ B$ for the matrix equations $ {Y^2} - YD + S = 0$ and $ {Y^2} - DY + S = 0$ respectively. No limitation is set on $ A$, $ B$, $ D$, and $ S$ except that they be square matrices. An illustrated example, including computing procedures, is discussed. The mathematical solutions presented should prove useful for solving the eigenvalue problem $ \left( {{\lambda ^2}I + \lambda D + S} \right)X = 0$, especially when the dimension of the matrices is large.
