gives the greatest common divisor of the polynomials polyi.

evaluates the GCD modulo the prime p.

Details and OptionsDetails and Options

  • In PolynomialGCD[poly1,poly2,], all symbolic parameters are treated as variables.
  • PolynomialGCD[poly1,poly2,] will by default treat algebraic numbers that appear in the polyi as independent variables.
  • PolynomialGCD[poly1,poly2,,Extension->Automatic] extends the coefficient field to include algebraic numbers that appear in the polyi.
