    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 implicitly-defined 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…

    Abstract:

    Path tracking is the fundamental computational tool in homotopy continuation and is therefore key in most algorithms in the emerging field of numerical algebraic geometry. Though the basic notions of predictor-corrector methods have been known for years, there is still much to be considered, particularly in the specialized algebraic setting of solving polynomial systems. In this article, the effects of the choice of predictor method on the performance of a tracker is analyzed, and details for…
