Math Colloquium: Michael Shub: Solving one homogeneous polynomial in two complex variables
Michael Shub (University of Toronto ), Solving one homogeneous polynomial in two complex variables
Abstract: In 1980 Smale studied the solution of a one complex polynomial in one variable. When we adapt his technique to a natural generalization for homogeneous polynomials many new open problems are encountered on the Riemann sphere. I will discuss the problems and their application to the complexity of equation solving.
