Summary: A. L. Dixon [Proc. Lond. Math. Soc. 6, 49-69 (1908; JFM 40.0207.01)] describes three distinct homogeneous determinant representations for the resultant of three bivariate polynomials of bidegree \((m,n)\). These Dixon resultants are the determinants of matrices of orders \(6mn\), \(3mn\) and \(2mn\), and the entries of these matrices are respectively homogeneous of degrees 1, 2, and 3 in the coefficients of the original three polynomial equations.
Here we mix and match columns from these three Dixon matrices to construct a large assortment of new hybrid determinant representations of orders ranging from \(2mn\) to \(6mn\) for the resultant of three bivariate polynomials of bidegree \((m,n)\).
For the entire collection see [Zbl 0938.00014].
