This module provides symbolic polynomials. The module is
responsible for the reduction rules that perform simplification.
The result can be also an integer, rational or fraction. In case
that some extra arguments is a fraction, the rules delegate to the
fraction methods since a polynom can be easily also viewed as a
fraction. In case some extra argument is an integer or rational,
this argument is viewed as a polynom.
?- X is (1+A)^2.
X is 1+2*A+A^2
?- X is (1+A)/(1+A)^2.
X is 1/(1+A)
The reduction rules are just predicates inside the polynom module with a Python first argument for the method receiver. We provide reduction rules for basic arithmetic. Special functions are currently not supported. Error handling is rudimentary.
The following symbolic polynomials predicates are defined:
