rewrites a rational expression as a sum of terms whose denominators are powers of square-free polynomials.
ApartSquareFree[expr, var]
treats all variables other than var as constants.
  • ApartSquareFree gives the square-free partial fraction decomposition of a rational expression.
  • ApartSquareFree[expr, Trig->True] treats trigonometric functions as rational functions of exponentials, and manipulates them accordingly.
  • ApartSquareFree automatically threads over lists in expr, as well as equations, inequalities and logic functions.
