diffalg

 delta_leader
 return the difference between the derivation operators of the leaders of two differential polynomials

 Calling Sequence delta_leader (p, q, R)

Parameters

 p, q - differential polynomials R - differential polynomial ring

Description

 • Important: The diffalg package has been deprecated. Use the superseding package DifferentialAlgebra instead.
 • Let fp and fq denote the leaders of p and q. The function delta_leader returns a sequence, if it exists, of derivations s such that fp = differentiate (fq, s, R).
 • The function returns FAIL if p or q belongs to the ground field of R or if fp and fq are derivatives of different differential indeterminates.
 • The command with(diffalg,delta_leader) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
