The theory of Newton-Okounkov bodies generalizes that of Newton Polytopes, giving a conceptual framework for root counts to systems of functions in terms of volumes and mixed volumes of convex Newton-Okounkov bodies. While the asymptotic definition of these bodies is not particularly constructive, when they admit a Khovanskii basis, they are polyhedral. Having a Khovanskii basis enables other methods based on polyhedra to be used.

While Newton-Okounkov bodies arose to solve questions from pure mathematics they have significant potential in applications. These include providing a foundation for root counts for polynomial systems from applications, the use of these root counts and Khovanskii bases for solving, and a host of algorithmic questions involving computing/determining Newton-Okounkov bodies and Khovanskii bases. The purpose of this minisymposium is to explore some of these opportunities and to advertise this to the wider community of applied algebraic geometry.
