Organisers: Kevin Vander Meulen (Redeemer University) and Fernando de Terán (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid)

Theme: The Frobenius companion matrix is a well-established classical matrix structure, which has been extensively used over the years, for instance, in the polynomial root-finding problem.  Recently there is a renewed interest in companion matrix forms, in part due to the discovery of other companion matrices by Fiedler, and to the interest, in the framework of Nonlinear Eigenvalue Problems, of looking for new classes of linearizations having better numerical features.
This minisymposium will gather researchers interested in the structures of companion matrices and companion linearizations of matrix polynomials and rational matrices.
