Title of
Normal Forms of Matrices of Differential Polynomials
Normal forms for matrix polynomials (such as Hermite, Popov etc) have been very useful in many areas of mathematics (e.g. linear control theory). In this talk we will discuss normal forms for matrices of differential operators. We show their usefulness in the context of systems of linear differential equations and discuss the various computational challenges in computing the forms for arbitrary matrices of differential operators.
