AFactor - inert absolute factorization

Calling Sequence





multivariate polynomial



The AFactor function is a placeholder for representing an absolute factorization of the polynomial p, that is a factorization over an algebraic closure of its coefficient field. It is used in conjunction with evala.


The call evala(AFactor(p)) computes the factorization of the polynomial p over the field of complex numbers. The polynomial p must have algebraic number coefficients.


In the case of a univariate polynomial, the absolute factorization is just the decomposition into linear factors.
