FilledSmallSquare Resultant[, , var] computes the resultant of the polynomials and with respect to the variable var.

FilledSmallSquare Resultant[, , var, Modulus->p] computes the resultant modulo the prime p.

FilledSmallSquare The resultant of two polynomials and , both with leading coefficient one, is the product of all the differences between roots of the polynomials. The resultant is always a number or a polynomial.
