Solving a System Part of Which is Fixed
Posted:

I need to solve many sets of algebraic equations. Each one consists of five equations in five unknowns. Three of the equations are of degree four, the other two of degree two.
The three equations of degree four, however, are fixed; that is, the only difference between two different sets of equations is that the two secondorder equations are different.
Can this help to solve the systems, assuming I can do a lot of preprocessing on the three equations which are always the same?
Also, I am interested only in real solutions whose absolute value is bounded by 1.
Many thanks,
Danny Keren.
