the resultant of two polynomials

Syntax
resultant(F: RINGELEM, G: RINGELEM, X: RINGELEM): RINGELEM

Description
This function returns the resultant of the polynomials F and G with respect to the indeterminate X.

Example
/**/  use R ::= QQ[p,q,x];
/**/  F := x^3+p*x-q;   G := deriv(F, x);
/**/  resultant(F, G, x);
4*p^3 +27*q^2
