ABSTRACT 

Gr\"obner bases are a general purpose method in symbolic computation for polynomials in several variables. They have many applications throughout the mathematical sciences. This talk gives an introduction to Gr\"obner bases, by illustrating three such applications: Linear integer programming, solving polynomial systems by eigenvalue methods, symbolic analysis of linear partial differential equations with polynomial coefficients.
