PolynomialMod

PolynomialMod[poly,m]

gives the polynomial poly reduced modulo m.

PolynomialMod[poly,{m1,m2,}]

reduces modulo all of the mi.

Details and Options

  • PolynomialMod[poly,m] for integer m gives a polynomial in which all coefficients are reduced modulo m.
  • When m is a polynomial, PolynomialMod[poly,m] reduces poly by subtracting polynomial multiples of m, to give a result with minimal degree and leading coefficient.
  • PolynomialMod gives results according to a definite convention; other conventions could yield results differing by multiples of m.
  • Unlike PolynomialRemainder, PolynomialMod never performs divisions in generating its results.

Properties & Relations  (5)

For univariate rational polynomials, PolynomialRemainder is the same as PolynomialMod:

PolynomialRemainder considers all polynomials to be univariate in the specified variable:

For multivariate polynomials, PolynomialMod picks its own variable order:

The main variable here is a:

PolynomialRemainder considers parameters to be invertible:

PolynomialMod does not invert symbolic expressions:
