    My research interests concern the application of polynomial homotopy continuation to scientific and engineering problems . The methodology involves the following fields: Computational Algebraic Geometry, Symbolic-Numeric Computation, Combinatorial and Polyhedral Methods, Mathematical Software and Applications, and Supercomputing. See the poster about numerical algebraic geometry; and the poster about PHCpack and phcpy.
    Updated Saturday 2 June 2018, with PHCpack 2.4.55 and phcpy 0.8.4.
    Updated Sunday 17 June 2018, with posting of the revised parallel blackbox solver paper.
