We give a sufficient condition (the solvability of two standard equations) of Sylvester matrix by using the displacement structure of the Sylvester matrix, and, according to the sufficient condition, we derive a new fast algorithm for the inversion of a Sylvester matrix, which can be denoted as a sum of products of two triangular Toeplitz matrices. The stability of the inversion formula for a Sylvester matrix is also considered. The Sylvester matrix is numerically forward stable if it is nonsingular and well conditioned.
