Objectives 
Determination of the number of solutions of a system of algebraic equations

Subject 
When we change the coefficients in a polynomial system of equations, then the number of solutions often remains constant 
assuming we are counting complex solutions and take multiplicities into account.
This idea is formative for intersection theory, a central discipline of algebraic geometry.
