Re: Re: Root function


Daniel,

What is the "canonical ordering in the complex plane"?

Is it a lexicographic ordering by real and imaginary parts? Or by Abs and
Arg? Or something else?

The Root form is a concise way of expressing algebraic numbers via the
minimal polynomial they satisfy, along with a canonical ordering in the
complex plane (hence those numbers 1-3 in the second field).
