MATH 4370 - Computational Algebra

Fall (offered alternate years). 4 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: linear algebra (MATH 2940 , MATH 2210 , or MATH 4310 ). Students will be expected to be comfortable with proofs.


Introduction to algebraic geometry and computational algebra. In this course, students learn how to compute a Gröbner basis for polynomials in many variables. Covers the following applications: solving systems of polynomial equations in many variables, solving diophantine equations in many variables, 3-colorable graphs, and integer programming. Such applications arise, for example, in computer science, engineering, economics, and physics.
