Algebraic Oil Research Project

2009-2012

The research project addresses several topics at the heart of oil recovery and oil exploration: production optimization, production allocation, improvement of the ultimate recovery, development of production strategies, and discovery of new oil reservoirs. The basic idea was to introduce methods of of symbolic computation (computer algebra) to solve problems in these areas. More precisely, the new techniques were part of an emerging area called Approximate Computational Commutative Algebra (or hybrid computation or symbolic-numeric computation)
