gives a list of the factors of a polynomial, together with their exponents.

Details and OptionsDetails and Options

  • The first element of the list is always the overall numerical factor. It is if there is no overall numerical factor.
  • FactorList[poly, Modulus->p] factors modulo a prime p.
  • FactorList[poly, GaussianIntegers->True] allows Gaussian integer coefficients.
  • FactorList[poly, Extension->{a1, a2, ...}] allows coefficients that are arbitrary rational combinations of the .
