# How to solve this system of equations? [closed]

I am trying to find a Poisson bracket on an algebra, and need to find a solution to a system of equations. The system of equations is very complicated, with more than 10000 equations and 60 variables.

The following is a part of the system of the equations: \begin{align} & 6 z_{2} z_{10} - 12 z_{4} + 6 z_{3} z_{13} + 12 z_{4} z_{23} - 12 z_{4} z_{44} + 6 z_{7} z_{41} - 12 z_{4} z_{52} + 12 z_{12} z_{48} - 12 z_{8} z_{54}= 0, \\ &3 z_{2} - 2 z_{7} - 4 z_{4} z_{6} - 4 z_{2} z_{23} - 4 z_{4} z_{22} + 4 z_{12} z_{15} + 2 z_{7} z_{23} + 4 z_{2} z_{29} - 4 z_{8} z_{24} + 4 z_{3} z_{30} + 4 z_{2} z_{44} - 4 z_{7} z_{52} + 4 z_{10} z_{50} + 4 z_{16} z_{48} -

But MuPAD was not able to solve. Are there some other methods to solve this system of equations? Thank you very much.

It seems this is a system of quadratic equations, so try to write it as an equation $z^T M z = 0$ with $z = (z_0,...,z_{\text{whatever}})$ and a symmetric matrix $M$ (it's always possible to choose $M$ symmetric). If the linear terms aren't typos, you can include them via $z = (1,z_0,...,z_{\text{whatever}})$.
As $M$ is symmetric, you can use some knowledge about rayleigh-quotients. E.g., you might want to check whether $M$ is positive (semi-)definite etc. I think, in order to solve $z^T M z = 0$ for non-zero $z$, you either want $M$ to have the eigenvalue $0$ and then find $z$ via $Mz = 0$ or want to express $z$ as a sum of two eigenvectors, one to a positive, one to a negative eigenvalue (so hope that $M$ is not positive/negative definite, but this can be decided by computer-algebra systems by calculation of a lot of determinants). In the end, there remains of course the question whether or not your solution $z$ is $0$ at the first component (which you want to scale to $1$).
• I think I should correct the answer: You obviously have more than one equation, hence you could try to rewrite them as $z^TM_i z = 0$ with a lot of matrices $M_i$ and try to understand these matrices. E.g. look for a common kernel, common eigenvectors etc. – Matthias Oct 17 '15 at 19:01
