1998 IMACS Conference on Applications of Computer Algebra

Special Session:

Applications of Gröbner Bases
###
Session Organizer:

The Gröbner bases method was introduced in 1965 by Buchberger
(see [Buch65,Buch70]).
Later work by the inventor and by many other researchers in the last
three decades has mainly added generalizations of the method and
more and more applications for the methods.
The Gröbner bases method has become one of the most important methods
in providing exact solution of scientific problems in multivariate
polynomial ideal theory, computational commutative algebra,
elimination theory, solving systems of algebraic equations, etc.
It is also being fruitfully used in a variety of seemingly unrelated
research areas such as geometrical theorem proving, integer programming,
bases for Bezier splines, engineering, etc.
The method is implemented in all major computer algebra systems.
Nevertheless, the field is still under active development both into the
direction of improving the method by new theoretical insights and by
finding new applications.
This session (Applications of Gröbner Bases) is dedicated to reporting
serious applications of the Gröbner bases method to mathematics, sciences,
engineering, logic, education and other research areas.
