The link above leads to a list of systems of polynomial equations
for the two-folds described in the article "One and Two-Fold Origami Axioms"
by R. C. Alperin and R. J. Lang which appears
in the 2006 4OSME Proceedings, Pasadena, CA, A.K.Peters, 2007.
Thanks to Bernd Sturmfels for forwarding this nice family of systems.
Bernd wonders who can solve these equations fastest and most reliably.
Does the number of complex roots always match the Bernstein bound?
What about the number of real roots?
Everyone who has some results on these origami equations,
please do communicate directly with Roger Alperin.

systems of Marshall Hampton
Clicking on the link above leads to a Mathematica notebook which generates
various polynomial systems. Doing unzip on the file
GeneralNewton3N.zip will also
generate the polynomial systems for you.
An addendum contains a reference to
a paper and another system.
Thanks to Marshall Hampton
(firstname.lastname@example.org) for contributing these polynomial systems.
applications that lead to overdetermined bi-linear algebraic systems
cover a wide rang of difficulty, from systems with less than 10 unknowns
to systems with over 450 unknowns and nearly 1000 polynomial equations.

some and many having a lot of solutions. The systems and their solutions are
in machine readable form and could be used for comparisons between different
The applications concern the classifications of integrable systems. In all
these classifications a polynomial ansatz for the equation or system of
equations was made as well as for a higher order symmetry or a polynomial

- Systems from Voronoi diagriams
The first problem concerns real solving a univariate polynomial (actually 2)
and the second real solving trivariate polynomial systems, that occur
during the computation of the Voronoi diagram of ellipses in the plane.
An additional system is given by
gzipped Maple code.
