The gap distance to the set of singular matrix pencils
We study matrix pencils sE-A using the associated linear subspace ker[A,-E]. The distance between subspaces is measured in terms of the gap metric. In particular, we investigate the gap distance of a regular matrix pencil to the set of singular pencils and provide upper and lower bounds for it. A relation to the distance to singularity in the Frobenius norm is provided.
