Workshop on

Symbolic-Numeric Algebra for Polynomials


15-17th July 1996
INRIA Sophia Antipolis, France

This meeting is intended as a timely workshop to discuss the emerging understanding of problems involving polynomials with inexactly-known coefficients. Such polynomial problems arise, for example, when physical measurements or numerical computations are used to specify a polynomial system. In this context, the usual exact algorithms of computer algebra are not applicable and new approaches must be devised: for example, eigenvalue formulations and the singular value decomposition. Recent exciting progress in this area, together with visits to Nice of some of the workers in this area, make the period of July 15-17 an excellent opportunity to review the current state of the art in this area and work towards the solution of remaining problems. Points of interest include: This meeting is being organized by SAFIR, a common project between UNSA, INRIA, and CNRS, and will be held at Sophia Antipolis, located between Cannes and Nice on the French Cote d'Azur.

Here is the list of participants.
