Polynomial Matrices, Matrix Pencils, Linearizations, Eigenvalue Problems
In the present note, a new characterization of strong linearizations, corresponding to a given regular polynomial matrix, is presented. A linearization of a regular polynomial matrix is a matrix pencil which captures the finite spectral structure of the original matrix, while a strong linearization is one incorporating its structure at infinity along with the finite one. In this respect, linearizations serve as a tool for the study of spectral problems where polynomial matrices are involved. In view of their applications, many linearization techniques have been developed by several authors in the recent years. In this note, a unifying approach is proposed for the construction of strong linearizations aiming to serve as a bridge between approaches already known in the literature.
