The generalized inverse AT,S(2) of a matrix A is a {2}-inverse of A with the prescribed range T and null space S. A representation for the generalized inverse AT,S(2) has been recently developed with the condition σ(GA|T)(0,), where G is a matrix with R(G)=T andN(G)=S. In this note, we remove the above condition. Three types of iterative methods for AT,S(2) are presented if σ(GA|T) is a subset of the open right half-plane and they are extensions of existing computational procedures of AT,S(2), including special cases such as the weighted Moore-Penrose inverse AM,N and the Drazin inverse AD. Numerical examples are given to illustrate our results.
