A continuous map f : C-n -> C-N is k-regular if the image of any k distinct points spans a k-dimensional subspace. It is an important problem in topology and interpolation theory, going back to Borsuk and Chebyshev, to construct k-regular maps with small N, and only a few nontrivial examples are known so far. Applying tools from algebraic geometry we construct a 4-regular polynomial map C-3 -> C-11 and a 5-regular polynomial map C-3 -> C-14. (C) 2017 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
