Processing polynomial algebraic problems by using SAC-2/ALDES

  • 17 Accesses


This paper discusses the portability of SAC-2/ALDES and reviews some applications in polynomial algebra. Furthermore, we indicate that the concept of the safety variable in the SAC-2/ALDES is not proper. When, for example, we used safety variable in isolating complex roots of polynomials, something wrong happened.
