FactorSquareFree

FactorSquareFree[poly]
pulls out any multiple factors in a polynomial.
  • FactorSquareFree automatically threads over lists, as well as equations, inequalities and logic functions.

FactorSquareFree only pulls out multiple factors:
Factor gives a complete factorization:
Expand is effectively the inverse of FactorSquareFree:
FactorSquareFreeList gives a list of factors:
A univariate polynomial has multiple factors if an only if its Discriminant is zero:
