This chapter presents canonical forms for real and complex matrices and for pairs of real and complex matrices, or matrix pencils, with symmetries. All these forms are known, and most are well-known. The chapter first looks at Jordan and Kronecker canonical forms, before turning to real matrix pencils with symmetries. It provides canonical forms for pairs of real matrices, either one of which is symmetric or skewsymmetric, or what is the same, corresponding matrix pencils. Finally, this chapter presents canonical forms of complex matrix pencils with various symmetries, such as complex matrix pencils with symmetries with respect to transposition.

Keywords:   canonical forms, complex matrices, matrix pencils, symmetries, Jordan canonical form, Kronecker canonical form
