Parameters

expr

-

expanded polynomial with rational coefficients

Description

• 

icontent computes a rational number such that dividing the expanded polynomial by it makes the polynomial primitive over the integers. Thus, for integer coefficients, icontent returns the greatest common divisor of the coefficients.

• 

For rational coefficients, icontent computes the least common multiple of the denominators of all fractions in addition to the greatest common divisor of the numerators of the coefficients.

Thread Safety

• 

The icontent command is thread-safe as of Maple 15.

• 

For more information on thread safety, see index/threadsafe.
