# Nearest common root of polynomials, approximate greatest common divisor and the structured singular value

@article{Halikias2013NearestCR, title={Nearest common root of polynomials, approximate greatest common divisor and the structured singular value}, author={George D. Halikias and G. Galanis and Nicos Karcanias and Efstathios Milonidis}, journal={IMA J. Math. Control. Inf.}, year={2013}, volume={30}, pages={423-442} }

In this paper the following problem is considered: given two coprime polynomials, find the smallest perturbation in the magnitude of their coefficients such that the perturbed polynomials have a common root. It is shown that the problem is equivalent to the calculation of the structured singular value of a matrix arising in robust control and a numerical solution to the problem is developed. A simple numerical example illustrates the effectiveness of the method for two polynomials of low degree…

In a simulation study, it is shown that Gauss–Newton and a new Rayleigh quotient method perform best, where the latter is more accurate when other roots than the true common roots are close together.
