My current project is a 2 volume book on numerical algebraic curve theory based on Mathematica. The first volume of this book has now been published by Wolfram Media in several versions, a Kindle version available at Amazon.com and a Wolfram language notebook version for use with Mathematica or the Wolfram CDF reader. In addition and article length summary of this book has been published in The Mathematica Journal.
Volume 1: A Numerical approach to Real Algebraic Plane Curves with the Wolfram Language
The main point of this book is to show that appropriate computer software can make this subject accessible to those who do not have the patience to master the big abstract theorems that usually define the field of abstract algebraic geometry. That doesn't mean we can ignore those theorems but does mean that we can concentrate on the application of these theorems rather than their development. To some extent this book was motivated by Shreeram Abhyankar's text The bulk of the book should be accessible to individuals who have enough familiarity with calculus to know what a partial derivative is. Numerical linear algebra is extensively used in the book but is hidden in the algorithms. An appendix is provided for those with a basic knowledge of linear algebra who want to learn more about this aspect.

The first two Chapters will discuss The next few chapters develop the methods from numerical linear algebra that will be needed, Macaulay and Sylvester matrices and duality. The basic definitions and techniques for the general case will be established. The last few chapters will cover, as examples, various situations I have recently presented in papers and talks. These are listed at the end of the left sidebar of this webpage. |
