Our algorithms are based on a generalization of the differential forms introduced by W. Ruppert and S. Gao to many variables, and use singular value decomposition or structured total least squares approximation and Gauss–Newton optimization to numerically compute the approximate multivariate factors. We demonstrate on a large set of benchmark polynomials that our algorithms efficiently yield approximate factorizations within the coefficient noise even when the relative error in the input is substantial (10 −3 ).}, number={5}, journal={JOURNAL OF SYMBOLIC COMPUTATION}, author={Kaltofen, Erich and May, John P. and Yang, Zhengfeng and Zhi, Lihong}, year={2008}, month={May}, pages={359–376} }
