Abstracts

Sept 20, Julia Lindberg (Electrical and Computer Engineering)

Polynomial systems arise naturally in many applications in engineering and the sciences. This talk will outline classes of homotopy continuation algorithms used to solve them. I will then describe ways in which structures such as irreducibility, symmetry and sparsity can be used to improve computational speed. The efficacy of these algorithms will be demonstrated on systems in power systems engineering, statistics and optimization
