We give a coherent theory of root polynomials, an algebraic tool useful for the analysis of matrix polynomials. In particular, we first survey results previously appeared in the literature, giving a formal proof for those that lacked one. We next extend some of these results providing some new concepts and related theorems, thus simplifying and expanding the theory. Then, we give some applications of root polynomials, such as the recovery of Jordan chains from linearizations of matrix polynomials, or the behaviour of Jordan chains under rational reparametrization. We also briefly discuss how root polynomials can be used to define eigenvectors and eigenspaces for singular matrix polynomials.
