FilledSmallSquarePolynomialGCD[, , ... ] gives the greatest common divisor of the polynomials .

FilledSmallSquarePolynomialGCD[, , ... , Modulus->p] evaluates the GCD modulo the prime p.

FilledSmallSquare Example: PolynomialGCD[1 + x y, x + x^2 y] LongRightArrow.

FilledSmallSquare In PolynomialGCD[, , ... ], all symbolic parameters are treated as variables.

FilledSmallSquarePolynomialGCD[, , ... ] will by default treat algebraic numbers that appear in the as independent variables.

FilledSmallSquarePolynomialGCD[, , ... , Extension->Automatic] extends the coefficient field to include algebraic numbers that appear in the .
