numtheory

compute simple continued fraction expansions for all real roots of a rational polynomial


Calling Sequence


cfracpol(pol, n)
cfracpol(pol)


Parameters


pol



rational polynomial

n



integer (n + 1 is the number of partial quotients)





Description


•

The cfracpol function returns simple continued fraction expansions of all real roots of a rational polynomial pol. Each expansion is given in list form with at most $n\+1$ quotients. If the second argument n is not present, it defaults to 10.

•

The command with(numtheory,cfracpol) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
