check for a radical number extension

Parameters

 expr - expression

Description

 • The type(expr, radnumext) calling sequence checks to see if expr is a radical number extension.
 • A radical number extension is an algebraic number extension specified in terms of radicals. This is a root of a combination of rational numbers and roots of rational numbers specified in terms of radicals.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{type}\left({\left(-1\right)}^{\frac{1}{2}},\mathrm{radnumext}\right)$
 ${\mathrm{true}}$ (1)
 > $\mathrm{type}\left({\left(\sqrt{5}-\frac{3}{2}\right)}^{\frac{4}{3}},\mathrm{radnumext}\right)$
 ${\mathrm{true}}$ (2)
 > $\mathrm{type}\left({\left(4-{5}^{\frac{1}{3}}\right)}^{\frac{1}{4}},\mathrm{radnumext}\right)$
 ${\mathrm{true}}$ (3)
 > $\mathrm{type}\left({x}^{\frac{1}{4}},\mathrm{radnumext}\right)$
 ${\mathrm{false}}$ (4)
 > $\mathrm{type}\left(I,\mathrm{radnumext}\right)$
 ${\mathrm{true}}$ (5)
