Constructible sets are needed in many algorithms of Computer Algebra, particularly in the GröbnerCover and other algorithms for parametric polynomial systems. In this paper we review the canonical form ofconstructible sets and give algorithms for computing it.
In this note we present an application of a new tool (the Gröbner cover method, to discuss parametric polynomial systems of equations) in the realm of automatic discovery of theorems in elementary geometry. Namely, we describe, through a relevant example, how the Gröbner cover algorithm is particularly well suited to obtain the missing hypotheses for a given geometric statement to hold true. We deal with the following problem: to describe the triangles that have at least two bisectors of equal length. The case of two inner bisectors is the well known, XIX century old, Steiner-Lehmus theorem, but the general case of inner and outer bisectors has been only recently addressed. We show how the Gröbner cover method automatically provides, while yielding more insight than through any other method, the conditions for a triangle to have two equal bisectors of whatever kind.
We present the canonical Gröbner Cover method for discussing parametric polynomial systems of equations. Its objective is to decompose the parameter space into subsets (segments) for which it exists a generalized reduced Gröbner basis in the whole segment with fixed set of leading power products on it. Wibmer's Theorem guarantees its existence. The Gröbner Cover is designed in a joint paper of the authors, and the Singular grobcov.lib library  implementing it, is developed by Montes. The algorithm is canonic and groups the solutions having the same kind of properties into different disjoint segments. Even if the algorithms involved have high complexity, we show how in practice it is effective in many applications of medium difficulty. An interesting application to automatic deduction of geometric theorems is roughly described here, and another one to provide a taxonomy for exact geometrical loci computations, that is experimentally implemented in a web based application using the dynamic geometry software Geogebra, is explained in another session.
We describe here a properly recent application of the Gröbner Cover algorithm (GC) providing an algebraic support to Dynamic Geometry computations of geometrical loci. It provides a complete algebraic solution of locus computation as well as a suitable taxonomy allowing to distinguish the nature of the different components. We included a new algorithm Locus into the Singular grobcov.lib library for this purpose. A web prototype has been implemented using it in Geogebra.
Kapur-Sun-Wang have recently developed a very efficient algorithm for computing
Comprehensive Gröbner Systems that has moreover the required essential properties
for being used as first step of the Gröbner Cover algorithm. We have implemented and
adapted it inside the Singular grobcov library for computing the Gröbner Cover and there
are evidences that it makes the canonical algorithm much more effective. In this note we
discuss the performance of GC with KSW on a collection of examples.
This is the continuation of Montes' paper "On the canonical discussion of polynomial systems with parameters''. In this paper, we define the Minimal Canonical Comprehensive Gröbner System of a parametric ideal and fix under which hypothesis it exists and is computable. An algorithm to obtain a canonical description of the segments of the Minimal Canonical CGS is given, thus completing the whole MCCGS algorithm (implemented in Maple and Singular). We show its high utility for applications, such as automatic theorem proving and discovering, and compare it with
other existing methods. A way to detect a counterexample to deny its existence is outlined, although the high number of tests done give evidence of the existence of the Minimal Canonical CGS.
