We study the approximate GCD of two univariate polynomials given with limited accuracy or, equivalently, the exact GCD of the perturbed polynomials within some prescribed tolerance. A perturbed polynomial is regarded as a family of polynomials in a classification space, which leads to an accurate analysis of the computation. Considering only the Sylvester matrix singular values, as is frequently suggested in the literature, does not suffice to solve the problem completely, even when the extended euclidean algorithm is also used. We provide a counterexample that illustrates this claim and indicates the problem's hardness. SVD computations on subresultant matrices lead to upper bounds on the degree of the approximate GCD. Further use of the subresultant matrices singular values yields an approximate syzygy of the given polynomials, which is used to establish a gap theorem on certain singular values that certifies the maximumdegree approximate GCD. This approach leads directly to an algorithm for computing the approximate GCD polynomial. Lastly, we suggest the use of weighted norms in order to sharpen the theorem's conditions in a more intrinsic context.

We discuss the use of a single generic linear combination of multiplication matrices, and its reordered Schur factorization, to find the roots of a system of multivariate polynomial equations. The principal contribution of the paper is to show how to reduce the multivariate problem to a univariate problem, even in the case of multiple roots, in a numerically stable way. 1 Introduction The technique of solving systems of multivariate polynomial equations via eigenproblems has become a topic of active research (with applications in computeraided design and control theory, for example) at least since the papers [2, 6, 9]. One may approach the problem via various resultant formulations or by Grobner bases. As more understanding is gained, it is becoming clearer that eigenvalue problems are the "weakly nonlinear nucleus to which the original, strongly nonlinear task may be reduced"[13]. Early works concentrated on the case of simple roots. An example of such was the paper [5], which use...

In the first part of this paper, we dene approximate polynomial gcds (greatest common divisors) and extended gcds provided that approximations to the zeros of the input polynomials are available. We relate our novel definition to the older and weaker ones, based on perturbation of the coefficients of the input polynomials, we demonstrate some deficiency of the latter definitions (which our denition avoids), and we propose new effective sequential and parallel (RNC and NC) algorithms for computing approximate gcds and extended gcds. Our stronger results are obtained with no increase of the asymptotic bounds on the computational cost. This is partly due to application of our recent nearly optimal algorithms for approximating polynomial zeros. In the second part of our paper, working under the older and more customary definition of approximate gcds, we modify and develop an alternative approach, which was previously based on the computation of the Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) of the associat...

We describe algorithms for computing the greatest common divisor (GCD) of two univariate polynomials with inexactlyknown coefficients. Assuming that an estimate for the GCD degree is available (e.g., using an SVDbased algorithm), we formulate and solve a nonlinear optimization problem in order to determine the coefficients of the "best" GCD. We discuss various issues related to the implementation of the algorithms and present some preliminary test results.

Abstract. In the beginning of the eighties, M. Shub and S. Smale developed a quantitative analysis of Newton’s method for multivariate analytic maps. In particular, their αtheory gives an effective criterion that ensures safe convergence to a simple isolated zero. This criterion requires only information concerning the map at the initial point of the iteration. Generalizing this theory to multiple zeros and clusters of zeros is still a challenging problem. In this article we focus on one complex variable functions. We study general criteria for detecting clusters and analyze the convergence of Schröder’s iteration to a cluster. In the case of a multiple root, it is wellknown that this convergence is quadratic. In the case of a cluster with positive diameter, the convergence is still quadratic provided the iteration is stopped sufficiently early. We propose a criterion for stopping this iteration at a distance from the cluster which

We formalize the notion of approximate GCD for univariate polynomials given with limited accuracy and then address the problem of its computation. Algebraic concepts are applied in order to provide a solid foundation for a numerical approach. We exhibit the limitations of the euclidean algorithm through experiments, show that existing methods only solve part of the problem and assert its worstcase complexity. A rigorous geometrical point of view is given in the parameter space of all input polynomials and SVD computations on subresultants are applied in order to derive upper bounds on the degree of the approximate GCD. Then, we establish a certification theorem and state the conditions under which it determines the precise GCD degree.

Combination of algebraic and numerical techniques for improving the computations in algebra and geometry is a popular research topic of growing interest. We survey some recent progress that we made in this area, in particular, regarding polynomial rootfinding, the solution of a polynomial system of equations, the computation of an approximate greatest common divisor of two polynomials as well as various computations with dense structured matrices and their further applications to polynomial and rational interpolation and multipoint polynomial evaluation. In some cases our algorithms reach nearly optimal time bounds and/or improve the previously known methods by order of magnitude, in other cases we yield other gains, such as improved numerical stability. Key words: algebraic/numerical algorithms, polynomial rootfinding, solution of a polynomial system of equations, approximate gcd, dense structured matrices, Toeplitz matrices, Cauchy matrices, polynomial interpolation, rational interpo...
