Abstract: In this talk, I will talk about how to apply symbolic computational tools to solve problems from two fields, the studies of central configurations from the N-body problem and Maxwell's conjecture about the electric potential created by point charges. Problems considered from both fields can be reduced to positive zero counting for parametric polynomial systems. We will show how to apply standard computer algebra tools to attact these problems.
