Numerical Methods in Algebraic Geometry


Main Conference: SIAM AG19 July 9-13, 2019 (Tue-Sat).

Location: University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland.

Our session: data and location of the talks are TBD.

This minisymposium is meant to report on recent advances in using numerical methods in algebraic geometry: the foundation of algebraic geometry is the solving of systems of polynomial equations. When the equations to be considered are defined over a subfield of the complex numbers, numerical methods can be used to perform algebraic geometric computations forming the area of numerical algebraic geometry (NAG). Applications which have driven the development of this field include chemical and biological reaction networks, robotics and kinematics, algebraic statistics, and tropical geometry. The minisymposium will feature a diverse set of talks, ranging from the application of NAG to problems in either theory and practice, to discussions on how to implement new insights from numerical mathematics to improve existing methods.
