Paper Abstract

Elimination theory was originally developed in the 18th and 19th centuries to find solvability criteria for a system of polynomial equations. We present some new resolvent methods that are suitable to solve important problems in computer aided geometric design (CAGD), including implicitization, inversion, intersection, computation of self intersection points, and detection of unfaithful parametrizations of rational curves and surfaces.
