Theoretical Computer Science

Special Issue on

Symbolic-Numeric Computation (SNC 2014)

Call For Papers

This special issue of Theoretical Computer Science (TCS) will include selected enhanced papers on Symbolic Numeric Computation presented at the SNC 2014 symposium held 28-31 July 2014 in Shanghai, China,, as well as other relevant papers in this subject area.

Four previous special issues on this subject have appeared as: Vol 315 (2-3) 2004, Vol 409 (2) 2008, Vol 412 (16) 2011, Vol 479 (1) 2013. All papers will be refereed according to the usual high standards of TCS. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Hybrid symbolic-numeric algorithms in linear, polynomial and differential algebra
  • Approximate polynomial GCD and factorization
  • Symbolic-numeric methods for solving polynomial equations and systems of equations
  • Resultants and structured matrices for symbolic-numeric computation
  • Differential equations for symbolic-numeric computation
  • Symbolic-numeric methods for geometric computation
  • Symbolic-numeric algorithms in algebraic geometry
  • Symbolic-numeric algorithms for nonlinear optimization
  • Implementation of symbolic-numeric algorithms
  • Model construction by approximate algebraic algorithms
  • Applications of symbolic-numeric computation.
