The transition matrixvarphicorresponding to then-dimensional matrixAcan be represented byvarphi(t) = g_{1}(t)I + g_{2}(t)A + ... + g_{n}(t)A^{n-1}, where the vectorg^{T} = (g_{1}, ... , g_{n})is generated fromdot{g}^{T} = g^{T}A_{c}, g^{T}(0) = (1, 0, ... , 0)and Acis the companion matrix toA. The result is applied to the covariance differential equationdot{C} = AC + CA^{T} + Qand its solution is written as a finite series. The equations are presented in a form amenable for implementation on a digital computer.
