Date & Time Location Speaker/Title
**Monday, Sep 15
4:40 pm
E1 Auditorium Eric Hanson, Colorado State University
An Introduction to Numerical Algebraic Geometry: Algorithms and Applications
This is an Applied Mathematics Colloquium talk, geared to a general audience. It may be of interest to statisticians or anyone who needs to solve systems of polynomial (rational) equations. Examples of such systems arise when computing maximum likelihood estimates of statistical model parameters (i.e., setting derivatives of log-likelihood function to zero and solving).
