  • PolynomialRemainder[ p , q , x ] gives the remainder from dividing p by q, treated as polynomials in x.
  • The degree of the result in x is guaranteed to be smaller than the degree of q.
  • Unlike PolynomialMod, PolynomialRemainder performs divisions in generating its results.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 3.3.4.
  • See also: PolynomialQuotient, Apart, Cancel, PolynomialMod, Mod, PolynomialReduce.
