Definitions and characterizations of pseudospectra are given for rectangular matrix poly-nomials expressed in homogeneous form: P(α,β)=α^dA_d+α^{d−1}βA_{d−1}+...+β^dA_0. It is shown that problems with infinite (pseudo)eigenvalues are elegantly treated in this framework. For such problems stereographic projection onto the Riemann sphere is shown to provide a convenient way to visualize pseudospectra. Lower bounds for the distance to the nearest nonregular polynomial and the nearest uncontrollable dth order system (with equality for standard state-space systems) are obtained in terms of pseudospectra, showing that pseudospectra are a fundamental tool for reasoning about matrix polynomials in areas such as control theory. How and why to incorporate linear structure into pseudospectra is also discussed by example.
