Overview of the RegularChains[FastArithmeticTools] Subpackage of RegularChains
List of RegularChains[FastArithmeticTools] Subpackage Commands
The RegularChains[FastArithmeticTools] subpackage contains a collection of commands for computing with regular chains in prime characteristic using asymptotically fast algorithms.
Most of the commands of this package implements core operations on regular chains such as regularity test and polynomial GCD modulo a regular chain. However, these commands have several constraints. On top of the characteristic issue (mentioned above) the current regular chain must have dimension zero or one. There is only one exception: the command RegularGcdBySpecializationCube which makes no assumption on dimension.
In order to call one of the commands of this subpackage the characteristic of the polynomial ring must be a prime number p satisfying the following properties. First, it should not be greater than 962592769. Secondly, the number p-1 should be divisible by a sufficiently large power of 2. 2^20 is often sufficient. The best prime number p under these constraints is 469762049 for which p-1 writes 2^26 * 7. If this power of 2 is not large enough, then a clean error is returned.
The commands IteratedResultantDim0 and IteratedResultantDim1 compute the iterated resultant of a polynomial w.r.t. a regular chain of dimension 0 and 1, respectively.
The commands NormalFormDim0 and ReduceCoefficientsDim0 compute the normal form of a polynomial w.r.t. a zero-dimensional regular chain.
The commands NormalizePolynomialDim0 and NormalizeRegularChainDim0 normalize a polynomial (w.r.t. a zero-dimensional regular chain) and a regular chain (w.r.t. itself).
The commands RandomRegularChainDim0 and RandomRegularChainDim1 compute random regular chains of given degrees.
The command RegularizeDim0 tests whether a polynomial is invertible modulo a zero-dimensional regular chain.
The commands RegularGcdBySpecializationCube, ResultantBySpecializationCube and SubresultantChainSpecializationCube compute resultants and polynomial GCDs modulo a regular chain using fast evaluation and interpolation.
The following is the list of the available commands.
