UserFunction Sum


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. Generators for the sum ideal of $u$ and $v$ are returned. In general they are not a Groebner basis.

Examples. The input for the examples is given in Reduce algebraic mode syntax. The output for each minisession
is returned in a separate window.

I:= {x*y+2*x-3,x**2+3*x+y};



The given ideals:
The sum ideal:
