Descartes' rule for multivariate polynomials

Submitted by Insmi on Sat, 03/18/2017 - 14:20

Descartes' rule is one of the first main result of algebraic geometry. Formulated in 1637 in the appendix entitled "La Géométrie" of the famous "Discours de la Méthode" [S], this rule gives an upper bound of the number of positive roots of a polynomial of one real-valued variable. The formulation of a similar rule for multi-variate polynomials has gone through new developements with the works of Frédéric Bihan and his collaborators who propose in [BD] a new upper bound for the number of roots with positive coordinates.

The second Call for Proposals of the Interreg Sudoe Programme is open

Submitted by Insmi on Sat, 03/18/2017 - 12:58

The Interreg Sudoe Programme supports regional development in Southwest Europe financing transnational projects through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The Programme promotes transnational cooperation to solve common problems in Southwest Europe, such as low investment in research and development, weak competitiveness of the small and medium-sized enterprises and exposure to climate change and environmental risks.

A step in the diretion of a general description of derived self-intersections

Submitted by Insmi on Wed, 03/01/2017 - 13:50

In algebraic geometry, intersection theory aims at describing how algebraic manifolds intersect one another in an ambient space. Recent progress about self-intersections have been made by studying how an algebric manifold intersects its infenitesimal perturbations. These results open the way to a better  understanding of derivate self-intersections.
