Organizer: CROSSING, Prof. Johannes Buchmann


In 1965 Buchberger introduced a first algorithmic approach to the computation of Groebner Bases. Over the last decades optimizations to this basic attempt were found. In this talk we discuss two main aspects of the computation of Groebner Bases: Predicting zero reductions is essential to keep the computational overhead and memory usage at a low. We show how Faugère's idea, initially presented in the F5 algorithm, can be generalized and further improved. The 2nd part of this talk is dedicated to the exploitation of the algebraic structures of a Groebner Basis. Thus we are not only able to replace polynomial reduction by linear algebra (Macaulay matrices, Faugère's F4 algorithm), but we can also specialize the Gaussian Elimination process for our purposes.
