Complexity of Bezout’s Theorem II Volumes and Probabilities
In this paper we study volume estimates in the space of systems of n homegeneous polynomial equations of fixed degrees d i with respect to a natural Hermitian structure on the space of such systems invariant under the action of the unitary group. We show that the average number of real roots of real systems is D 1/2 where D = Π d i is the Be zout number. We estimate the volume of the subspace of badly conditioned problems and show that volume is bounded by a small degree polynomial in n, N and D times the reciprocal of the condition number to the fourth power. Here N is the dimension of the space of systems.
