Manipulating Polynomials with Multiple Variables

G. Hutchinson

1994 Mathematica Developer Conference
Conference location

Champaign, IL

The package PolyMV.m provides 26 defined operations useful for interactive manipulation of large polynomials with multiple variables into equivalent forms. These include:

* Controlled separations of polynomials into subpolynomial lists to facilitate computations and examination

* Fine control of factoring and expansion operations

* Polynomial predicates to assist in finding terms and defining operations

* Auxiliary operations for display, easy access to polynomial parts, and factored computation of symbolic matrix determinants

A talk given at the Mathematica Developer Conference (Champaign, IL), April, 1994, with some later additions. A related article "Manipulating Polynomials with Multiple Variables" has been submitted to The Mathematica Journal.
