abstract = {This report summarises ongoing discussions of the authors on the topic of differential resultantswhich have three goals in mind. First, we aim to try to understand existing literature on thetopic. Second, we wish to formulate some interesting questions and research goals based on ourunderstanding of the literature. Third, we would like to advance the subject in one or moredirections, by pursuing some of these questions and research goals. Both authors have somewhatmore background in nondifferential, as distinct from differential, computational algebra. For thisreason, our approach to learning about differential resultants has started with a careful review ofthe corresponding theory of resultants in the purely algebraic (polynomial) case. We try, as faras possible, to adapt and extend our knowledge of purely algebraic resultants to the differentialcase. Overall, we have the hope of helping to clarify, unify and further develop the computationaltheory of differential resultants.},
