# A hybrid symbolic-numerical approach to the center-focus problem

@article{Mahdi2017AHS, title={A hybrid symbolic-numerical approach to the center-focus problem}, author={Adam Mahdi and Claudio Pessoa and Jonathan D. Hauenstein}, journal={J. Symb. Comput.}, year={2017}, volume={82}, pages={57-73} }

We propose a new hybrid symbolic-numerical approach to the center-focus problem. The method allowed us to obtain center conditions for a three-dimensional system of differential equations, which was previously not possible using traditional, purely symbolic computational techniques.
