quotient for integers
If N = Q*D + R, and
0 <= R < D, then
Div(N, D) returns Q and
Mod(N, D) returns R.
NOTE: To perform the division algorithm on a polynomial or vector, use
NR
(normal remainder) to find the remainder, or
DivAlg
to get both
the quotients and the remainder. To determine if a polynomial is in a
given ideal or a vector is in a given module, use
NF
or
IsIn
, and
to find a representation in terms of the generators use
GenRepr
.
