attempts to reduce expr to a single Root object.

Details and OptionsDetails and Options

  • If expr consists only of integers and Root and AlgebraicNumber objects combined using algebraic operations, then the result from RootReduce[expr] will always be a single Root object.
  • Simple Root objects may in turn automatically evaluate to rational expressions or combinations of radicals.
  • RootReduce automatically threads over lists, as well as equations, inequalities, and logic functions.
