The roots of palindromic and antipalindromic polynomials appear in pairs (s,1/s). A polynomial with such roots is antipalindromic if and only if in addition, it has a root at 1 of an odd multiplicity. The result has applications in system theory: 1) any kernel representation of a discrete-time, time-reversible, scalar, autonomous LTI system is either palindromic or antipalindromic. (Similar statement holds for systems with inputs.) 2) LTI systems with palindromic or antipalindromic kernel representations have nontrivial conserved quantities.
