New bivariate system solver and topology of algebraic curves


We present a new approach for solving polynomial systems of two bivariate polynomials with rational coefficients. We first use González-Vega and Necula approach [3] based on sub-resultant sequences for decomposing a system into subsystems according to the number of roots (counted with multiplicities) in vertical lines. We then show how the resulting triangular subsystems can be efficiently solved by computing lexicographic Gröbner basis and Rational Univariate Representations (RURs) of these systems. We also show how this approach can be performed using modular arithmetic, while remaining deterministic. Finally we apply our solver to the problem of computing the topology of algebraic curves using the algorithm Isotop [2]. We show that our approach yields a substantial gain of a factor between 1 to 10 on curves of degree up to 28 compared to directly computing a Gröbner basis and RUR of the input system, and how it leads to a very competitive algorithm compared to the other state-of-the-art implementations.
