# Resultant - Properties

Properties

• The resultant is zero if and only if the two polynomials have a common root in an algebraically closed field containing the coefficients.
• Since the resultant is a polynomial with integer coefficients in term of the coefficients of P and Q, it follows that
• The resultant is well defined for polynomials over any commutative ring.
• If h is a homomorphism of the ring of the coefficients into another commutative ring, which preserve the degrees of P and Q, then the resultant of the image by h of P and Q is the image by h of the resultant of P and Q.
• The resultant of two polynomials with coefficients in a integral domain is null if and only if they have a common divisor of positive degree.
• res(P,Q) = (-1)degPdegQres(Q,P)
• res(PR,Q)=res(P,Q)res(R,Q)
• If P'=P+RQ and degP'=degP, then res(P,Q)=res(P',Q).
• If X, Y, P, Q have the same degree and X=a00P+a01Q, Y=a10P+a11Q,
then
• res(P-,Q)=res(Q-,P) where P-(z)=P(-z)

### Famous quotes containing the word properties:

The reason why men enter into society, is the preservation of their property; and the end why they choose and authorize a legislative, is, that there may be laws made, and rules set, as guards and fences to the properties of all the members of the society: to limit the power, and moderate the dominion, of every part and member of the society.
John Locke (1632–1704)

A drop of water has the properties of the sea, but cannot exhibit a storm. There is beauty of a concert, as well as of a flute; strength of a host, as well as of a hero.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
