Normal forms of endomorphism-valued power series

Christopher Keane and Szilárd Szabó

DOI: 10.2140/involve.2018.11.81

We show for n,k 1, and an n-dimensional complex vector space V that if an element A End(V )[[z]] has constant term similar to a Jordan block, then there exists a polynomial gauge transformation g such that the first k coefficients of gAg1 have a controlled normal form. Furthermore, we show that this normal form is unique by demonstrating explicit relationships between the first nk coefficients of the Puiseux series expansion of the eigenvalues of A and the entries of the first k coefficients of gAg1.
