Abstract: In the paper, the matrix equations $ AX-XA=C$ and $ AX+XB=C$ (the Lyapunov equation) are fully investigated and solved if a solution exists. As special cases, exact expressions for the resolvent of the equation $ (E-A)X=0$ are obtained for a finite-dimensional operator $ A$ and the Fredholm equation of the second kind is studied completely in the finite-dimensional case. The form of a matrix $ C$ with nonnegative entries is found such that it is the commutator of a given matrix $ A$ with nonnegative entries and some other matrix $ X$ with nonnegative entries.
