D.4.1.1 absFactorize

Procedure from library absfact.lib (see absfact_lib).

absFactorize(p [,s]); p poly, s string

coefficient field is the field of rational numbers or a transcendental extension thereof

ring R which is obtained from the current basering by adding a new parameter (if a string s is given as a second input, the new parameter gets this string as name). The ring R comes with a list absolute_factors with the following entries:
    absolute_factors[1]: ideal   (the absolute factors)
    absolute_factors[2]: intvec  (the multiplicities)
    absolute_factors[3]: ideal   (the minimal polynomials)
    absolute_factors[4]: int     (total number of nontriv. absolute factors)
The entry absolute_factors[1][1] is a constant, the entry absolute_factors[3][1] is the parameter added to the current ring.
Each of the remaining entries absolute_factors[1][j] stands for a class of conjugated absolute factors. The corresponding entry absolute_factors[3][j] is the minimal polynomial of the field extension over which the factor is minimally defined (its degree is the number of conjugates in the class). If the entry absolute_factors[3][j] coincides with absolute_factors[3][1], no field extension was necessary for the jth (class of) absolute factor(s).

All factors are presented denominator- and content-free. The constant factor (first entry) is chosen such that the product of all (!) the (denominator- and content-free) absolute factors of p equals p / absolute_factors[1][1].
