  1. Resultant

    In mathematics, the resultant of two polynomials is a polynomial expression of their coefficients, which is equal to zero if and only if the polynomials have a common root, or, equivalently, a common factor. In some older texts, the resultant is also called eliminant. The resultant is widely used in number theory, either directly or through the discriminant, which is essentially the resultant of a polynomial and its derivative. The resultant of two polynomials with rational or polynomial coefficients may be computed efficiently on a computer. It is a basic tool of computer algebra, and is a built-in function of most computer algebra systems. It is used, among others, for cylindrical algebraic decomposition, integration of rational functions and drawing of curves defined by a bivariate polynomial equation. The resultant of n homogeneous polynomials in n variables or multivariate resultant, sometimes called Macaulay's resultant, is a generalization of the usual resultant introduced by Macaulay. It is, with Gröbner bases, one of the main tools of effective elimination theory.

Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Sanjiv Shah:

    As we see higher oil output from (non-OPEC) Russia, Iraq and, most importantly, Saudi Arabia, we are likely to see continued pressure from the resultant low oil prices. This will affect U.S. shale producers as well and therefore an increase in new investment in the sector is unlikely. This will support prices in the medium term.

  3. Ramana Pemmaraju:

    The more I try to understand one very peculiar aspect of women, it seems clear to me that apart from the beauty or the sensuous state that women command over men, there is an interiority, lesser known to the masses which is more of agony and pain - a resultant effort of the continuous mood swings and the frequent natural cycles that buoy them, it is in this state that women function and calibrate on this basis in selecting their soul mate and not the usual histrionics that men take effort in pleasing them!”

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    La gestion des personnes jalouses et leur jalousie dans votre vie peut être l'une des tâches les plus difficiles, néanmoins il est pas tout à fait impossible. Le meilleur remède pour la jalousie est prouvé être l'amour, parce que le monstre aux yeux verts ne peut pas simplement survivre dans l'environnement qui est rempli d'amour, de compassion et de bonté. Seul l'amour vous autorise pour Boomerang jalousie retour à son origine, résultant en brûlant la personne jalouse dans la fureur et le feu de la jalousie. l'amour est donc le seul moyen le plus fort et le plus efficace d'apprivoiser ce monstre aux yeux verts dans votre monde. - Deo.
