We show that, except for a special family of polynomials -that we call $\lambda$-reducible-, a natural multivariate generalization of Schwartz-Zippel-DeMillo-Lipton lemma holds. Moreover, we develop a symbolic algorithm to detect $\lambda$-reducibility. Our work is motivated by and has applications in combinatorial geometry. Along the way we also present a multivariate generalization of Combinatorial Nullstellensatz, which might be of independent interest. 
Privacy-Preserving Multi-Robot Task Allocation via Secure Multi-Party Computation
This work examines the question of how to allocate robots to tasks optimally while ensuring that no task valuations, utilities, positions, or related data are released, via an auction-based assignment algorithm implemented using secure multi-party computation operations, without requiring any trusted auctioneer.
The Boolean complexity of computing Chow forms
A deterministic algorithm using resultants is developed, and a single exponential complexity upper bound is obtained, which represents the first Boolean complexity bound.

The complexification and degree of a semi-algebraic set
Abstract. The complexification of a semi-algebraic set $S \subset{\bf R}^n$ is the smallest complex algebraic set containing S. Let S be defined by s polynomials of degrees less than d. We prove
Remarks on the algebraic approach to intersection theory
The purpose of this paper is to study the solutions ofr algebraic (homogeneous) equations in projectiven-space counted with multiplicities given by the length of well-defined primary ideals. Hence we
