17:00 - 18:00 (Sparse) Elimination Theory - Zafeirakis Zafeirakopoulos

Abstract: We will introduce basic notions from computational algebra, such as Groebner bases and resultants, focusing on their elimination properties. Then we will study elimination ideals and their varieties. An important application of variable elimination is polynomial system solving, which of course is useful for solving problems in many different areas of mathematics.
