HomotopyContinuation.jl is a Julia package for solving systems of polynomial equations by numerical homotopy continuation.

See juliahomotopycontinuation.org for installation instructions, full content overview and detailed documentation.

Basic usage

HomotopyContinuation.jl aims at having easy-to-understand top-level commands. Here is a simple example:

using HomotopyContinuation
@var x y; # declare the variables x and y
F = System([x^2+2y, y^2-2])
result = solve(F)
Result with 4 solutions
• 4 non-singular solutions (2 real)
• 0 singular solutions (0 real)
• 4 paths tracked
• random seed: 902575
