complete Factorization of a Polynomial
splits(a, x, b)
Important: The polytools package has been deprecated. Use the superseding command PolynomialTools[Splits] instead.
The splits function computes the complete factorization of a univariate polynomial.
The univariate polynomial a in x, with rational or algebraic number coefficients or polynomial coefficients, is factored into linear factors.
The factorization is returned in the form u,f1,m1,..,fn,mn where a=u⁢f1m1...fnmn where each fk (the factor) is a unit normal irreducible polynomial and each mk (its multiplicity) is a positive integer.
In the case of three arguments, the third argument b is assigned the extensions of Q on output, where Q is the set of rational numbers.
The command with(polytools,splits) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
