Algorithms in numerical algebraic geometry and applications
The topics in this dissertation, while independent, are unified under the field of numerical algebraic geometry. With ties to some of the oldest areas in mathematics, numerical algebraic geometry is relatively young as a field of study in its own right. The field is concerned with the numerical approximation of the solution sets of systems of polynomial equations and the manipulation of these sets. Given a polynomial system ƒ : CN → Cn, the methods of numerical algebraic geometry produce numerical approximations of the isolated solutions of ƒ(z) = 0, as well as points on any positive-dimensional ...
