Robust Radical Sylvester-Gallai Theorem for Quadratics

pdf-format:


Abstract

We prove a robust generalization of a Sylvester-Gallai type theorem for quadratic polynomials. More precisely, given a parameter 0 < δ ≤ 1 and a finite collection ℱ of irreducible and pairwise independent polynomials of degree at most 2, we say that ℱ is a (δ, 2)-radical Sylvester-Gallai configuration if for any polynomial F_i ∈ ℱ, there exist δ(|ℱ|-1) polynomials F_j such that |rad (F_i, F_j) ∩ ℱ| ≥ 3, that is, the radical of F_i, F_j contains a third polynomial in the set. We prove that any (δ, 2)-radical Sylvester-Gallai configuration ℱ must be of low dimension: that is dim span_ℂ{ℱ} = poly(1/δ).
