Reflections on Elimination Theory

Tentative abstract:

My lecture will survey developments in elimination theory from Newton and Bézout up to modern times. I will discuss the dominance of elimination theory in the 19th century and the challenges it faced in the 20th century with the rise of abstract algebraic geometry. I will also mention the role of the ISSAC community and my own involvement in computational issues with Gröbner bases and geometric modeling.
