N2 - In several applications, e.g., in control and systems modeling theory, Drazin inverses and matrix pencil methods for the study of generalized (descriptor) linear systems are used extensively. In this paper, a relation between the Drazin inverse and the Kronecker canonical form of rectangular pencils is derived and fully investigated. Moreover, the relation between the Drazin inverse and the Weierstrass canonical form is revisited by providing a more algorithmic approach. Finally, the Weierstrass canonical form for a pencil through the core-nilpotent decomposition method is defined.
