Description (last modified by )
With sage6.4.beta6, the following polynomial factorization gives a reducible factor (a^2 + b^2)
:
sage: R.<z,a,b> = PolynomialRing(QQ) sage: N = a^4*z^8 + 2*a^2*b^2*z^8  b^4*z^8  16*a^3*b*z^7 + 16*a*b^3*z^7 + 28*a^4*z^6  56*a^2*b^2*z^6 + 28*b^4*z^6 + 112*a^3*b*z^5  112*a*b^3*z^5  70*a^4*z^4 + 140*a^2*b^2*z^4  70*b^4*z^4  112*a^3*b*z^3 + 112*a*b^3*z^3 + 28*a^4*z^2  56*a^2*b^2*z^2 + 28*b^4*z^2 + 16*a^3*b*z  16*a*b^3*z  a^4 + 2*a^2*b^2  b^4 sage: N.factor() (1) * (a^2 + b^2) * (z^4*a + z^4*b  4*z^3*a  4*z^3*b + 6*z^2*a  6*z^2*b + 4*z*a + 4*z*b  a + b) * (z^4*a + z^4*b  4*z^3*a + 4*z^3*b  6*z^2*a  6*z^2*b + 4*z*a  4*z*b + a + b)
This is fixed by #17254.
