DerivationAction

Action of a derivation

Syntax
DerivationAction(D: RINGELEM, P: RINGELEM)

Description
Thanks to Enrico Carlini.

Given the polynomial P and the derivation D , this function computes the action of D on P .

For the sake of simplicity Forms/Polynomials and Derivations live in the same ring, the distinction between them is purely formal.

Example
/**/  use R ::= QQ[x,y,z];
/**/  DerivationAction(x*y*z, x^3+x*y*z);
