PolynomialLCM

  • PolynomialLCM[ , , ... ] gives the least common multiple of the polynomials .
  • PolynomialLCM[ , , ... , Modulus-> p ] evaluates the LCM modulo the prime p.
  • Example: PolynomialLCM[1 + x y, x + x^2 y].
  • PolynomialLCM[ , , ... ] will by default treat algebraic numbers that appear in the as independent variables.
  • PolynomialLCM[ , , ... , Extension->Automatic] extends the coefficient field to include algebraic numbers that appear in the .
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 3.3.4.
  • See also: PolynomialGCD, LCM.
