It is well known that the equation x(t)=Ax(t)+f(t), where A is a square matrix, has a unique bounded solution x for any bounded continuous free term f, provided the coefficient A has no eigenvalues on the imaginary axis. This solution can be represented in the form


The kernel 𝒢 is called Green’s function. In this paper, for approximate calculation of 𝒢, the Newton interpolating polynomial of a special function gt is used. An estimate of the sensitivity of the problem is given. The results of numerical experiments are presented.

Keywords: Bounded Solutions Problem; Green’s Function; Matrix Function; Newton’s Interpolating Polynomial; Divided Difference; Sensitivity
