A computational approach to the theory of adjoints

Michela Ceria


The word "adjoint" refers to several definitions which are not  all equivalent (see, for example, Greco and Valabrega 1979, 1982): we shall deal with any of them. The aim of this work is to provide an algorithm which, given two plane curves DH, allows one to decide whether H is adjoint to D. With a slight modification to the main procedure, we shall be able to deal with special adjoints (Greco and Valabrega 1979, 1982) and true adjoints (Oneto 1979).
