Matrix Polynomials and Canonical Forms

Part of the Universitext book series (UTX)


This chapter is devoted to matrix decompositions. The main studies are on the Schur decomposition, spectral decomposition, singular value decomposition, Jordan decomposition, and numerical range. Attention is also paid to the polynomials that annihilate matrices, especially the minimal and characteristic polynomials, and to the similarity of a complex matrix to a real matrix.
