Many applications give rise to nonlinear eigenvalue problems with an underlying structured matrix polynomial. In this paper several useful classes of structured polynomial (e.g., palindromic, even, odd) are identified and the relationships between them explored. A special class of linearizations that reflect the structure of these polynomials, and therefore preserve symmetries in their spectra, is introduced and investigated. We analyze the existence and uniqueness of such linearizations, and show how they may be systematically constructed.
