Grobner Bases


Speaker: Bernd Sturmfels, Mathematics, UC Berkeley
Location: 693 Kerr
Start time: Fri, Apr 21 2000, 12:10PM

Gr\"obner bases are a general purpose method in symbolic computation for polynomials in several variables. They have many applications throughout the mathematical sciences. This talk gives an elementary introduction to Gr\"obner bases, by illustrating three such applications: Linear integer programming, solving polynomial systems by eigenvalue methods, symbolic solution of linear partial differential equations with polynomial coefficients.
