Matrix polynomials is a classical topic in Matrix Analysis that has received a lot of attention in the last decade. This renewed interest comes mainly from the necessity of improving the algorithms for computing the eigenvalues of Matrix Polynomials, both in terms of efficiency and accuracy, from the many applications where Matrix Polynomials arise, and from the key role that Matrix Polynomials play in solving more general nonlinear eigenvalue problems. As a consequence of these numerical and practical necessities many classical concepts in the theory of Matrix Polynomials have been revised, simplified, expanded, and set in more applied perspectives, as well as many new lines of theoretical research have been initiated and analyzed. This Mini-Symposium aims to give an overview of recent activity on Matrix Polynomials from the point of view of theory, applications, and numerical practice.
