This talk is part of the N/A
In my talk I will give glimpses what the descipline of Symbolic Computation is and what problems it tackles. In particular, I will discuss the use of heuristics (numerical, randomized, and algorithmic) that seem necessary to solve some of today's problems in geometric modeling and equation solving. Thus, we seem to have come full cycle (the discipline may have started in the 1960s at the MIT AI Lab), but with a twist that I shall explain.
