FactorTermsList

  • FactorTermsList[ poly , , , ... ] gives a list of factors of poly. The first element in the list is the overall numerical factor. The second element is a factor that does not depend on any of the . Subsequent elements are factors which depend on progressively more of the .

    Further Examples

    The first entry is a number, the second is free of w and z, and the third is free of w.

    In[1]:=

    Out[1]=

    Here is a variation for comparison.

    In[2]:=

    Out[2]=

    Here is another variation for comparison.

    In[3]:=

    Out[3]=

    We repeat the last example over the integers modulo . No numeric factor is pulled out because all integers modulo a prime are units.

    In[4]:=

    Out[4]=
