Abstract: Certain classes of nonlinear systems of equations, such as polynomial systems have properties that make them particularly amenable to solution on distributed computing systems. Some algorithms, considered unfavorably on a single processor serial computer, may be excellent on a distributed system. This paper considers the solution of polynomial systems of equations via a globally convergent homotopy algorithm on a hypercube. Some computational results are reported.
