Abstract The elimination procedure as described by Williams has been coded in LISP and FORMAC and used in solving systems of polynomial equations. It is found that the method is very effective in the case of small systems, where it yields all solutions without the need for initial estimates. The method, by itself, appears inappropriate, however, in the solution of large systems of equations due to the explosive growth in the intermediate equations and the hazards which arise when the coefficients are truncated. A comparison is made with difficulties found in other problems in non-numerical mathematics such as symbolic integration and simplification.
