Dear Forum,

Jacob Hirbawi asked in his email message:

I'd like to know the status of multi-variable polynomials in

GAP. Before the release of 3.4 there was some discussion about

having an efficient implementation of these in a future

release. How far off is this?

The next release of GAP, which will be 4.1, will contain a

multi-variable polynomial arithmetic. However, it will most certainly

not contain any special multi-variable polynomial algorithms

(e.g. Groebner bases), but it should contain enough support to use

external packages, for example, to compute a Groebner basis and then

work with this basis inside GAP.

best wishes

Frank
