I am having trouble simplifying expressions in mathematica. My epxerissions
involve two parameters x & y that parameterise a unit circle so that
x^2 + y^2 =1
Without chosing a particular parameterization for x and y I want to simplify
epxpertions of the form:
3x^2 + 2y^2 -----> 2 + x^2
or
(x^2 + y^2)^(1/2) -----> 1
and more importantly for should perform the simplification
A[x^2] + B [y^2] + C[x^2+y^2] -----> A[ x^2] + B[ y^2] + C[1]
where A,B&C are functions.
I assume that this can me achieved with a relatively simple rewrite rule but
I have had very limited success making this work. Can anyone suggest a
solution,
Many thanks
Jon Palmer
P.S. I also want to expand the problem to that of three variables x,y&z
parameterizing a unit sphere but I suspect that this will be obvious form
the solution of the unit circle problem.
