NAGlab: Numerical Algebraic Geometry Lab

NAGlab, Summer 2010 (Bates, Zeringue, Ihde, Hanson, Niemerg, left to right)

My students and I, together with colleagues such as Chris Peterson and Gene Allgower, run the NAGlab (Numerical Algebraic Geometry lab) at CSU. We meet every week or two as a group to discuss progress on our various projects, consider open problems, and have external speakers come in to give talks in a casual seminar setting.

If you have a polynomial system (or related problem) that you need solved, let us know and we'll see what we can do.
