Introduction to Algebraic Varieties II - Solving Systems of Polynomial Equations

Student-Run Applied & Math Seminar

Speaker: Mohamed Omar, UC Davis
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Wed, Jan 21 2009, 12:10PM

This is the second talk in a series of talks on algebraic varieties. In this talk, we introduce Elimination Theory, a powerful theoretical and practical tool for solving systems of polynomial equations. We present a general description of the theory, and motivate it through examples and practical applications.
