 Description:
Many algorithms for determining properties of real algebraic or semialgebraic sets rely upon the ability to compute smooth points. Existing methods to compute smooth points on semialgebraic sets use symbolic quantifier elimination tools. In this paper, we present a simple algorithm based on computing the critical points of some wellchosen function that guarantees the computation of smooth points in each connected compact component of a real (semi)algebraic set. Our technique is intuitive …

 Description:
A fundamental problem in algebraic geometry is to decompose the solution set of a given polynomial system. A numerical description of this solution set is called a numerical irreducible decomposition and currently all standard algorithms use a sequence of homotopies forming a dimensionbydimension approach. In this article, we pair a classical result to compute a smooth point on every irreducible component in every dimension using a single homotopy together with the theory of isosingular s…

 Description:
In the field of numerical algebraic geometry, positivedimensional solution sets of systems of polynomial equations are described by witness sets. In this paper, we define multiprojective witness sets which encode the multidegree information of an irreducible multiprojective variety. Our main results generalize the regeneration solving procedure, a trace test, and numerical irreducible decomposition to the multiprojective case. Examples are included to demonstrate this new approach.

 Description:
Standard interior point methods in semidefinite programming can be viewed as tracking a solution path for a homotopy defined by a system of bilinear equations. By considering this in the context of numerical algebraic geometry, we employ numerical algebraic geometric techniques such as adaptive precision path tracking, endgames, and projective space to accurately solve semidefinite programs. We develop feasibility tests for both primal and dual problems which can distinguish between the fou…

 Description:
A common problem when analyzing models, such as a mathematical modeling of a biological process, is to determine if the unknown parameters of the model can be determined from given inputoutput data. Identifiable models are models such that the unknown parameters can be determined to have a finite number of values given inputoutput data. The total number of such values over the complex numbers is called the identifiability degree of the model. Unidentifiable models are models such that th…

 Description:
Computational tools in numerical algebraic geometry can be used to numerically approximate solutions to a system of polynomial equations. If the system is wellconstrained (i.e., square), Newton’s method is locally quadratically convergent near each nonsingular solution. In such cases, Smale’s alpha theory can be used to certify that a given point is in the quadratic convergence basin of some solution. This was extended to certifiably determine the reality of the corresponding sol…

 Description:
The Kuramoto model describes synchronization behavior among coupled oscillators and enjoys successful application in a wide variety of fields. Many of these applications seek phasecoherent solutions, i.e., equilibria of the model. Historically, research has focused on situations where the number of oscillators, n, is extremely large and can be treated as being infinite. More recently, however, applications have arisen in areas such as electrical engineering with more modest values of n. For…

 Description:
StewartGough platforms are mechanisms which consist of two rigid objects, a base and a platform, connected by six legs via spherical joints. For fixed leg lengths, a generic StewartGough platform is rigid with 40 assembly configurations (over the complex numbers) while exceptional StewartGough platforms have infinitely many assembly configurations and thus have selfmotion. We define a family of exceptional StewartGough platforms called Segredependent StewartGough platforms which aris…

 Description:
We define tensors, most of which correspond with cubic polynomials, which have the same exponent w as the matrix multiplication tensor. In particular, we study the symmetrized matrix multiplication tensor defined on an nxn matrix A by trace(A^3). The use of polynomials enables the introduction of additional techniques from algebraic geometry in the study of the matrix multiplication exponent w.

 Abstract:
Numerical algebraic geometry is the area devoted to the solution and manipulation of polynomial systems by numerical methods, which are mainly based on continuation. Due to the extreme intrinsic parallelism of continuation, polynomial systems may be successfully dealt with that are much larger than is possible with other methods. Singular solutions require special numerical methods called endgames, and the endgames currently used do not take advantage of parallelism. This article gives an ove…

 Abstract:
Dedicated to our collaborator, mentor, and friend, Andrew Sommese, by Bates, Hauenstein, and Wampler on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday.
When numerically tracking implicitlydefined paths, such as is required for homotopy continuation methods, efficiency and reliability are enhanced by using adaptive stepsize and adaptive multiprecision methods. Both efficiency and reliability can be further improved by adapting precision and stepsize simultaneously. This paper presents a strategy fo…
