„Intro to homotopy continuation with a view towards minimal problems“

Timothy Duff
Georgia Institute of Technology, GA, USA

Abstract:
Homotopy continuation is a versatile numerical method for solving polynomial systems of equations. It is the main subroutine in a field known as numerical algebraic geometry, which aims to describe the solution set of an arbitrary system in terms of certain  generic “witness points.” It also has an emerging role in several applications. I will introduce the “how” and “why” of homotopy continuation, survey specialized solution techniques, and briefly explain their use in the study of 3d relative pose reconstruction.
