The outcome | Students are able to apply algorithms of symbolic algebra based on Groebner basis of polynomial ideals. | |||
Contents | ||||
Contents of lectures | Computer algebra systems and solving systems of polynomial equations. Rings, ideals and fields. Polynomial ring of one and more variables. Monomial ideals and orders. Algorithm of division. Groebner basis and Buchberg’s algorithm. Minimal and reduced Groebner basis. Applications of Groebner’s bases on the solvability of system, computer graphics and robotics. | |||
Contents of exercises | Through examples, tasks and problems student learns how to apply theorems and basic concepts that are learnt through theoretical contents. Especially students are prepared how to solve problems that are occurring in computer science and technique. | |||
