I will talk about the convex hulls of trajectories of polynomial dynamical systems. Such trajectories also include real algebraic curves. The boundary of the resulting convex bodies are stratified into families of faces. I will discuss the numerical algorithms we developed for identifying these patches of faces. This work is also a step towards computing the attainable region of a trajectory. This is a joint work with Daniel Ciripoi, Andreas Loehne, and Bernd Sturmfels.
