goodInitialPair(List) -- make an initial pair conjectured to be good by Shub and Smale

Synopsis

Description

Generates a start system S that is conjectured to have good complexity when used in linear homotopy with target system T leading to one solution. For more details see: C. Beltran and A. Leykin, "Certified numerical homotopy tracking", Experimental Mathematics 21(1): 69-83 (2012)
