### Is it easy to certify whether a given set of solutions to a polynomial system is complete?

Given a system of complex polynomial equations, we seek the solution set. If we have more equations than variables, then we might expect a finite solution set. One may obtain the solution set by ...

### A practical way to check whether a module is periodic

A module $M$ over a finite dimensional selfinjective algebra $A$ over a field $K$ is called periodic if $M \cong \Omega^n(M)$ for some $n \geq 1$. We assume here that $M$ is simple and that A is a ...
