Some tidbits on ideal projectors, commuting matrices and their applications

Boris Shekhtman


The main result of this paper is the parametrization of ideal projectors onto an arbitrary finite-dimensional linear subspace $G\subset{\bf k}[{\bf x}]$. This parametrization extends the previous ones by B. Mourrain and by M. Kreuzer and L. Robbiano. We also give applications of the technique developed in this paper to a question of similarity between a sequence of commuting matrices and its transpose and to the existence of real solutions to a system of polynomial equations.
