DifferentialAlgebra[Tools][LeadingCoefficient] - returns the leading coefficient of a differential polynomial

Calling Sequence

LeadingCoefficient(ideal, v, opts)

LeadingCoefficient(p, v, R, opts)

LeadingCoefficient(L, v, R, opts)

Parameters

ideal

-

a differential ideal

p

-

a differential polynomial

v (optional)

-

a derivative

L

-

a list or a set of differential polynomials

R

-

a differential polynomial ring or ideal

opts (optional)

-

a sequence of options

Description

• 

The function call LeadingCoefficient(p,v,R) returns the leading coefficient of p regarded as a univariate polynomial in v. If p does not depend on v then the function call returns p.

• 

The function call LeadingCoefficient(L,v,R) returns the list or the set of the leading coefficients of the elements of L with respect to v.

• 

If ideal is a regular differential chain, the function call LeadingCoefficient(ideal,v) returns the list of the leading coefficients of the chain elements. If ideal is a list of regular differential chains, the function call LeadingCoefficient(ideal,v) returns a list of lists of leading coefficients.

• 

When the parameter v is omitted, it is understood to be the leading derivative of each processed differential polynomial. In that case, the function behaves as the Initial function.

• 

This command is part of the DifferentialAlgebra:-Tools package. It can be called using the form LeadingCoefficient(...) after executing the command with(DifferentialAlgebra:-Tools). It can also be directly called using the form DifferentialAlgebra[Tools][LeadingCoefficient](...).
