# determine consistency of nonlinear system of equations

Hello,

I need to be able to determine the consistency of very large systems of polynomial equations, with 30-40 variables and as many equations. When I put such systems into `solve`

, I get the same system back again. Here are some equations typical of those in the systems I am dealing with:

`2*a0*b0 == 0,`

`2*a0*b5 + 2*a1*b4 + 2*a4*b1 + 2*a5*b0 - 4*a8*b8 == 0,`

`2*a0*b10 + 2*a1*b9 + 2*a10*b0 + 2*a2*b8 + 2*a8*b2 + 2*a9*b1 == 0,`

`3*b0^2*c6 + 6*b0*b1*c5 + 6*b0*b2*c4 + 6*b0*b4*c2 + 6*b0*b5*c1 + 6*b0*b6*c0 - 12*b0*b8*c9 - 12*b0*b9*c8 + 3*b1^2*c4 + 6*b1*b4*c1 + 6*b1*b5*c0 - 12*b1*b8*c8 + 6*b2*b4*c0 - 6*b8^2*c1 - 12*b8*b9*c0 + 2*a0*a6 + 2*a1*a5 + 2*a2*a4 - 4*a8*a9 == 0`

This is not a complete system - just a few equations to show the lengths of equations that tend to come up. Again, I don't care what any solutions are; I just need to know if any exist. Is there a way to do this in sage?

Thanks!
