• Speaker: Paul Vrbik, School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, The University of Newcastle
  • Title: Computer Algebra : A Retrospective
  • Location: Room V205, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle
  • Time and Date: 4:00 pm, Thu, 16th Oct 2014
  • Abstract:

    We discuss the genesis of symbolic computation, its deployment into computer algebra systems, and the applications of these systems in the modern era.

    We will pay special attention to polynomial system solvers and highlight the problems that arise when considering non-linear problems. For instance, forgetting about actually solving, how does one even represent infinite solution sets?
