A real algebraic variety is the set of points in real Euclidean space that satisfy a system of polynomial equations.  Metric algebraic geometry is the study of properties of real algebraic varieties that depend on a distance metric. In this talk, we introduce metric algebraic geometry through a discussion of Voronoi cells, bottlenecks, and the reach of an algebraic variety. We also show applications to the computational study of the geometry of data with nonlinear models.
