Measurement of the frequency shift at the peak of the P20 line of a CO2 waveguide laser
Abstract
The concept of a columnreduced polynomial matrix is an important one in the theory of linear systems. The theory of Jordan chains and minimal realization is developed for such matrices. Also, the relationships between generalized latent vectors of the nonsingular polynomial matrix and their associated generalized eigenvectors of the system map are explored in this paper. This permits the spectral analysis of an arbitrary nonsingular polynomial matrix, extending previous work for the monic case.
