Polynomial Continuation and Kinematics
The "Wampler Conference" Polynomials, Kinematics, and Robotics was held June 5-7, 2017.
For more about the connection between kinematics and polynomials, along with an introduction to polynomial continuation and numerical algebraic geometry, view the slide show (45 min. with audio) recorded at my talk to the SIAM Annual Meeting, Pittsburgh, July 13, 2010. Or you can view a PDF of just the slides.

Publications: List of articles and a download page of preprints. Also includes links to my two books.
