Title: Applications of Parameterized Polynomial Systems.

Abstract: Many problems in computer vision and engineering can be formulated using a parameterized system of polynomials which must be solved for given instances of the parameters. Due to the nature of these applications, solutions and behaviour over the real numbers are those that provide meaningful information for the system. This talk will describe using homotopy continuation within numerical algebraic geometry to solve these parameterized polynomial systems. It will also discuss applications regarding 2D image reconstruction in computer vision and 3RPR mechanisms in kinematics.
