Solutions of Multivariate Polynomial Systems using Macaulay Resultant Expressions
Finding zeros of algebraic sets is a fundamental problem in aerospace engineering computation. Geometrically, this problem can often be represented by the intersection of multiple conic or quadric surfaces. A common example is GPS trilateration, which is geometrically given by the intersection of three spheres. In this work, Macaulay resultant expressions are used to compute the solutions of a set of multivariate polynomial expressions. Both two- and three-dimensional algebraic sets are considered, and examples of two geometric systems and their solutions are provided.
