On families of symmetric matrices

J.W. Bruce

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (journal)peer-review


    In this paper we consider germs of smooth families of symmetric matrices. Using the natural notion of equivalence, that is smooth change of parameters and parameterised conjugation, we obtain a list of all simple germs and investigate their geometry.
