The input to our algorithm is a multivariate polynomial, whose complex rational coe#cients are considered imprecise with an unknown error that causes f to be irreducible over the complex numbers C. We seek to perturb the coe#cients by a small quantitity such that the resulting polynomial factors over C. Ideally, one would like to minimize the perturbation in some selected distance measure, but no e#cient algorithm for that is known. We give a numerical multivariate greatest common divisor algorithm and use it on a numerical variant of algorithms by W. M. Ruppert and S. Gao. Our numerical factorizer makes repeated use of singular value decompositions. We demonstrate on a significant body of experimental data that our algorithm is practical and can find factorizable polynomials within a distance that is about the same in relative magnitude as the input error, even when the relative error in the input is substantial (10 3 ).

Motivated by a connection with the factorization of multivariate polynomials, we study integral convex polytopes and their integral decompositions in the sense of the Minkowski sum. We first show that deciding decomposability of integral polygons is NPcomplete then present a pseudopolynomial time algorithm for decomposing polygons. For higher dimensional polytopes, we give a heuristic algorithm which is based upon projections and uses randomization. Applications of our algorithms include absolute irreducibility testing and factorization of polynomials via their Newton polytopes. 1

Abstract. In the vein of recent algorithmic advances in polynomial factorization based on lifting and recombination techniques, we present new faster algorithms for computing the absolute factorization of a bivariate polynomial. The running time of our probabilistic algorithm is less than quadratic in the dense size of the polynomial to be factored.

Given a squarefree polynomial P 2 k 0 [x; y], k 0 a number eld, we construct a linear dierential operator that allows one to calculate the genus of the complex curve dened by P = 0 (when P is absolutely irreducible), the absolute factorization of P over the algebraic closure of k 0 , and calculate i ..."

Given a squarefree polynomial P 2 k 0 [x; y], k 0 a number eld, we construct a linear dierential operator that allows one to calculate the genus of the complex curve dened by P = 0 (when P is absolutely irreducible), the absolute factorization of P over the algebraic closure of k 0 , and calculate information concerning the Galois group of P over k 0 (x) as well as over k 0 (x).
On Approximate Irreducibility of Polynomials in Several Variables

Such separation bounds are useful for testing whether a numerical polynomial is absolutely irreducible, given a certain tolerance on its coefficients.

We study the problem of bounding a polynomial away from polynomials which are absolutely irreducible. Such separation bounds are useful for testing whether a numerical polynomial is absolutely irreducible, given a certain tolerance on its coefficients. Using an absolute irreducibility criterion due to Ruppert, we are able to find useful separation bounds, in several norms, for bivariate polynomials. We also use Ruppert's criterion to derive new, more effective Noether forms for polynomials of arbitrarily many variables. These forms lead to small separation bounds for polynomials of arbitrarily many variables.

We present new deterministic and probabilistic algorithms that reduce the factorization of dense polynomials from several to one variable. The deterministic algorithm runs in subquadratic time in the dense size of the input polynomial, and the probabilistic algorithm is softly optimal when the number of variables is at least three. We also investigate the reduction from several to two variables and improve the quantitative version of Bertini’s irreducibility theorem. Key words: Polynomial factorization, Hensel lifting, Bertini’s irreducibility theorem.
