### Has vol. 3A of Cullis's “Matrices and Determinoids” been scanned and vol. 3B been archived?

This is a borderline question, but I'm going to risk posing it. Cuthbert Edmund Cullis (1875?-1955?) was a somewhat obscure British mathematician whose opus magnum was a multi-volume treatise called ...

### Polynomial defined recursively by a resultant

Cross posting from MSE. Definition: For any natural number $n\ge 3$, define the polynomial $P_{n}\left(x_1,x_2,...,x_{n-1},x_{n} \right)$, with indeterminates $x_{i}$, where $i\in\{1,2,...,n-1,n\}$, ...

### Polynomials that share at least one root

This is a generalization of an MSE question, Polynomials that share at least one root. Let $P(x)$ be a specific polynomial of degree $d$, with given real coefficients $A_i$ ($A_d=1$), and real roots: ...

### An explicit formula for characteristic polynomial of matrix tensor product [closed]

Consider two polynomials P and Q and their companion matrices. It seems that char polynomial of tensor product of said matrices would be a polynomial with roots that are all possible pairs product of ...

### Division of bivariate polynomials

The following theorem (lemma 4.2.18 on page 97) is proven in thesis "Computationally efficient Error-Correcting Codes and Holographic Proofs" by Daniel Alan Spielman: Let $E(X, Y)$ be a polynomial ...

### Final step in Coppersmith?

In the final step in Coppersmith technique we have $n$ polynomials (possibly non-homogeneous) in $\mathbb Z[x_1,\dots,x_m]$ where $m\leq n$ and using elimination theory we extract the common integer ...

### Resultants for compactly represented product form polynomials?

Typically computing resultnt of $n+1$ different $n+1$-variate homogeneous polynomials takes $O(poly(\prod_{i=1}^{d_{i}}))$ time where $d_i$ is degree of $i$th polynomial. In certain cases the ...

### Intersection number of two projective curves using the resultant and tangent lines

For my thesis, I'm working on the intersection of projective plane curves over $\mathbb{C}$. We define the intersection number of projective plane curves (see for example Gibson - Elementary Geometry ...

### Efficient algorithm to compute resultants of sparse polynomials?

Consider two polynomials $f,g\in\mathbb{F}_2$ of degree $O(2^n)$, with the property that they are extremely sparse (say, only $O(n)$ of the coefficients are non-zero). Is there a way to calculate ...
