On Algorithmic Parametrization Methods in Algebraic Geometry

  • Josef Schicho
Part of the Texts and Monographs in Symbolic Computation book series (TEXTSMONOGR)


The parametrization problem can be described as the problem of finding a general closed form solution to a system of algebraic equations, where “closed form” means rational functions in one or more free parameters.
