Syzygy module

syzygy modele {f1,…,fk}

f(t)=(f1(t),…, fk(t))

Vector polynomials p(t)=(p(t),…,pk(t)) such that


syzygy modele space k-1 generators (Cox, 98)

LV(p) denotes the leading coefficient and deg(p)=n

syzygy module


A set of k-1 vector polynomials u1,…,uk-1 is called a u-basis of the polynomial f1,…,fk or a u-basis of the syzygy module syz(f1,…,fk),if

u1,…,uk-1 are a basis of syz(f1,…,fk). That is any l∈syz(f1,…,fk),

can be expressed uniquely by


where hi are polynomials in t;

2. LV(u1),…,LV(uk-1) are linearly independent.


Properties of u bases

Theorem 1 u1,…,uk-1 are u-basis for f=(f1,…,fk) with deg(u1) ≤deg(u2) ≤…≤deg(uk-1) and GCD(f1,…,fk)=1.

We have:

Every l∈syz(f1,…,fk) can be expressed by (1) with deg(hiui) ≤deg(l)

If v1,…vk-1 is a set of vector polynomials in syz(f1,…,fk) that are linearly independent with deg(v1) ≤deg(v2) ≤…≤deg(vk), then

deg(ui) ≤deg(vi) for i=1,2,…,k-1.

If v1,…,vk-1 is another u-basis for f1,…,fk with deg(v1) ≤deg(v2) ≤

…≤deg(vk), then deg(ui)=deg(vi) for i=1,2,…,k-1.

Properties of u-bases

4. ui(t0) ≠0 for every parameter value t0. deg(u1) ≤deg(u2) ≤…≤deg(uk-1) and GCD(f1,…,fk)=1.

5. u1(t0),…,uk(t0) are linearly independent for every parameter

value t0.

6. The out product of u1,…,uk-1 is equal to c(f1,…,fk) for some non-zero constant c.

7. f(t0)=cS for some constant c and for S=(s1,…,sk) if and only if



Equivalent definition

Let u1,…,uk be k-1 polynomials in syz(f1…,fk) with deg(u1) ≤…≤deg(uk-1) and GCD(f1,…,fk)=1. Then u1,…,uk-1 form a u-basis for syz(f1,…,fk) if and only if one of the conditions holds:

1. Every element l∈syz(f1,…,fk) can be expressed as in (1) and u1,…,uk-1 are of the lowest degree.

2. Every element l ∈syz(f1,…,fk) can be expressed as in (1) with

deg(hiui) ≤deg(l) for i=1,…,k-1.

3. Every element l ∈syz(f1,…,fk) can be expressed as in (1) and deg(u1)+…+deg(uk-1)=deg(f1,…,fk).

4. The outer product of u1,…,uk-1 is equal to c(f1,…,fk) where c is a constant not equal to zero, and deg(u1)+…+deg(uk-1)=deg(f1,…,fk).

Equivalent definition

An algorithm to calculate u bases

Algorithm: deg(u1) ≤…≤deg(uk-1) and GCD(f1,…,fk)=1. Then u1,…,uk-1 form a u-basis for syz(f1,…,fk) if and only if one of the conditions holds:

Input: f=(f1(t),…,fk(t)) with GCD=1

Output: k-1 polynomial for u-bases

Step 1: Create the set of vector polynomials {ua,b}:

ua,b=(0,…,0, -fb(t),…, fa(t),…,0);

Sort {ua,b} by a,b and rename the set {ui} i=1,2,…,s.

Step 2: Set mi=LV(ui) and ni=deg(ui), i=1,2,…,s.

Step 3: Sort ni so that n1≥n2≥…≥ns and re-index ui,mi.

Step 4: Find real numbers a1,a2,…as such that


and at least two of the terms aimi are not zero.

Step 5: Choose the lowest integer j such that aj≠0 , update uj by


If uj≡0, discard uj and set s=s-1; otherwise set mj=LV(uj)

and nj=deg(uj).

Step 6: If s=k-1, then output the k-1 non-zero polynomials u1,…,uk-1

and stop; otherwise, go to step 3.

3. Implicitization: Given a rational space curve P(t), find a low degree implicit representation for this curve.

4. Intersection: Given two rational space curves P(t), ,find

the intersection points of P(t) and
