 Separant
 returns the separant of a differential polynomial Calling Sequence Separant(ideal, v, opts) Separant(p, v, R, opts) Separant(L, v, R, opts) Parameters

 ideal - a differential ideal p - a differential polynomial v (optional) - a variable L - a list or a set of differential polynomials R - a differential polynomial ring opts (optional) - a sequence of options Options

 • The opts arguments may contain one or more of the options below.
 • fullset = boolean. In the case of the function call Separant(ideal,v), applies the function also over the differential polynomials which state that the derivatives of the parameters are zero. Default value is false.
 • notation = jet, tjet, diff or Diff. Specifies the notation used for the result of the function call. If not specified, the notation of the first argument is used.
 • memout = nonnegative. Specifies a memory limit, in MB, for the computation. Default is zero (no memory out). Description

 • The function call Separant(p,v,R) returns the separant of p regarded as a univariate polynomial in v, that is the partial derivative of p with respect to v. The differential polynomial p is assumed to be non-numeric.
 • The function call Separant(L,v,R) returns the list or the set of the separants of the elements of L with respect to v.
 • If ideal is a regular differential chain, the function call Separant(ideal,v) returns the list of the separants of the chain elements. If ideal is a list of regular differential chains, the function call Separant(ideal,v) returns a list of lists of separants.
 • When the parameter v is omitted, it is understood to be the leading derivative of the processed differential polynomial with respect to the ranking of R, or the one of its embedding polynomial ring, if R is an ideal.
 • This command is part of the DifferentialAlgebra:-Tools package. It can be called using the form Separant(...) after executing the command with(DifferentialAlgebra:-Tools). It can also be directly called using the form DifferentialAlgebra[Tools][Separant](...). Examples
