 ExtendedNormalizedGcd
 extended normalized GCD of two polynomials with respect to a regular chain Calling Sequence ExtendedNormalizedGcd(p1, p2, v, rc, R) Parameters

 p1 - polynomial of R p2 - polynomial of R v - variable of R rc - regular chain of R R - polynomial ring Description

 • The command ExtendedNormalizedGcd(p1, p2, v, rc, R) returns a list of pairs $\left[{g}_{i},{a}_{i},{b}_{i},{\mathrm{rc}}_{i}\right]$ where ${a}_{i}$, ${b}_{i}$, ${g}_{i}$ are polynomials of R and ${\mathrm{rc}}_{i}$ is a regular chain of R.
 • For each pair, the polynomial ${g}_{i}$ is a normalized GCD of p1 and p2 modulo the saturated ideal of ${\mathrm{rc}}_{i}$.
 • For each pair, the polynomials ${a}_{i}$, ${b}_{i}$, ${g}_{i}$ satisfy ${a}_{i}\mathrm{p1}+{b}_{i}\mathrm{p2}={g}_{i}$ modulo the saturated ideal of ${\mathrm{rc}}_{i}$.
 • For each pair, the leading coefficient of the polynomial ${g}_{i}$ with respect to v is normalized (and thus regular) modulo the saturated ideal of ${\mathrm{rc}}_{i}$.
 • The returned regular chains ${\mathrm{rc}}_{i}$ form a triangular decomposition of rc (in the sense of Kalkbrener).
 • The returned regular chains are strongly normalized.
 • Comparing to ExtendedRegularGcd, the output of ExtendedNormalizedGcd will look simpler in general when rc is zero-dimensional.
 • However, the output of ExtendedNormalizedGcd may be much larger and much more expensive to get than the one of ExtendedRegularGcd, when rc is not zero-dimensional.
 • rc must be strongly normalized.
 • v must be the common main variable of p1 and p2.
 • The initials of p1 and p2 must be regular with respect to rc.
 • This command is part of the RegularChains[ChainTools] package, so it can be used in the form ExtendedNormalizedGcd(..) only after executing the command with(RegularChains[ChainTools]).  However, it can always be accessed through the long form of the command by using RegularChains[ChainTools][ExtendedNormalizedGcd](..).
