Abstract: In the first part of this paper (Sections 2-4), the main concern is with the boundary of the pseudospectrum of a matrix polynomial and, particularly, with smoothness properties of the boundary. In the second part (Sections 5-6), results are obtained concerning the number of connected components of pseudospectra, as well as results concerning matrix polynomials with multiple eigenvalues, or the proximity to such polynomials.
