Polynomial Divisibility, Interpolation, and Algebraic Extensions

3-1. Commands for Handling Polynomial Expressions

This chapter is about working with polynomials and algebraic extensions. We will study the MATLAB commands that enable you to perform polynomial operations, working with roots, Galois extensions, Gröbner bases, polynomial interpolation, and operations modulo an integer. We will also present the commands that Maple implements to the same effect.

MATLAB enables agile work with polynomials, providing several commands for handling polynomial algebraic expressions. These expressions can also be treated as general algebraic expressions, ...
