An *n × n* real matrix *P* is said to be a generalized reflection matrix if *P ^{T} = P* and

*P*

*I*(where

*P*is the transpose of

We prove that the first (second) algorithm converges to the reflexive (anti-reflexive) solution of the coupled matrix equations for any initial reflexive (anti-reflexive) matrix. Finally two numerical examples are used to illustrate the efficiency of the proposed algorithms.
