 CARMA SEMINAR
 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, 16^{th} 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 nonlinear problems. For instance, forgetting about actually solving, how does one even represent infinite solution sets?
