Lecture notes on complexity of quantifier elimination over the reals

Submission date: 1 December 2021


These are lecture notes for a course I gave in mid-1990s for MSc students at the University of Bath. It presents an algorithm with singly exponential complexity for the existential theory of the reals, in the spirit of J. Renegar. The aim was to convey the main underlying ideas, so many of the proofs and finer details of algorithms are either missing or just sketched. I changed nothing in the original notes except adding references, bibliography, and correcting obvious typos.
