**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.
