UserFunction Quotient


The arguments $u$ and $v$ have the type $DPOLID$ which abbreviates Distributive Polynomial Ideal

The meaning of its parameters is as follows.

$C$: Type of coefficients.

$v=\{v_1,v_2,\ldots \}$: Distributive variables in decreasing order.

$O=LEX|GRLEX|GREVLEX$: Term order.

Specification. The ideal quotient of the ideals $u$ and $v$ is returned.

Examples. The input for the examples is given in Reduce algebraic mode syntax.

The output for each minisession is returned in a separate window.

The first example is from Adams and Loustaunau, page 73.

I:={x**2,x+y}; J:={x*(x+y)**2,y};



The given ideals:
$<x^2,x+y>, <x(x+y)^2,y>$
The quotient ideal:

The next example is more complicated.

f:={x*y+2*x-3,x**2+3*x+y}; g:={3*x*y-x+y**2-1,x+3*y-1};


The given ideals:
The quotient ideal:
$< y^{5}+\frac{13}{4}y^4+\frac{41}{4}y^3+\frac{73}{4}y^2-17y+\frac{27}{4},$

$x+\frac{22592}{201333}y^{4}+\frac{63388}{201333}y^{3} + \frac{252887}{201333}y^{2}+ \frac{393466}{201333}y -\frac{41487}{67111} >$
