In engineering and applied mathematics, polynomial systems arise whose solution sets contain components of different dimensions and multiplicities. In this article we present algorithms, based on homotopy continuation, that compute much of the geometric information contained in the primary decomposition of the solution set. In particular, ignoring multiplicities, our algorithms lay out the decomposition of the set of solutions into irreducible components, by finding, at each dimension, generic points on each component. As byproducts, the computation also determines the degree of each component and an upper bound on itsmultiplicity. The bound issharp (i.e., equal to one) for reduced components. The algorithms make essential use of generic projection and interpolation, and can, if desired, describe each irreducible component precisely as the common zeroesof a finite number of polynomials.

Abstract. Our main purpose is to give multiple examples for using the available implementations for computing the normalization of an affine ring, computing the minimial generators of the normalization as an algebra over the original ring and integral closures of ideals. Some such examples have been published for Singular, but not for Macaulay 2 and we present both in this paper. We also briefly describe the implementations. 1.
