content(RingElement) -- the content of a polynomial

Synopsis

Description

content f -- returns the content of a matrix or polynomial.

The content is the ideal in the base ring generated by the coefficients.

i1 : R = ZZ[x]

o1 = R

o1 : PolynomialRing
i2 : content(4*x + 6*x^5)

o2 = ideal (6, 4)

o2 : Ideal of ZZ
i3 : generator oo

o3 = 2
