Dear all,

I would like to advertise the 2-day 2023 AMS Short Course "Polynomial
systems, homotopy continuation and applications", which will take place in
Boston Jan 2--3 2023. Though it's happening fairly soon, there's still
plenty of time for you to register. We welcome participants with all types
of backgrounds, not just mathematicians :)

In brief, "homotopy continuation" refers to a family of numerical methods
for solving polynomial systems of equations. They played a pretty big role
in the 2022 CVPR best paper.
you find yourself wanting to learn more about these methods, then this
event was made for you!

Please forward to those you think will be interested, and feel free to
email me personally with any questions: timduff at uw.edu

Best regards,

Date: *Jan 2–3 2023*

Location: John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center, Boston
Marriott Hotel, and Boston Sheraton Hotel, Boston, MA


Jonathan Hauenstein, Introduction to homotopy continuation

Anton Leykin, Numerical algebraic geometry toolbox

Silviana Amethyst, Numerical algebraic geometry in Bertini

Jose Rodriguez, Maximum likelihood degrees: statistics, topology, and

Julia Lindberg, Numerical algebraic geometry for the power flow equations

Mark Plecnik, Kinematic design

Description: Systems of multivariate polynomial equations are ubiquitous
throughout mathematics and neighboring scientific fields such as
kinematics, computer vision, power flow systems, and more. Numerical
homotopy continuation methods are a fundamental technique for both solving
these polynomial systems and determining more refined information about
their structure. This two-day short course will offer six introductory
lectures on the theory of polynomial systems, homotopy continuation, and
various applications.

Registration: Please register for the short course here.
Note that the registration fee is separate from the JMM main
conference. *Discounted
rates* are available to AMS members and early registrants *before December
20.* Late/on-site registration is also possible: see Short Course Website
for more details.
