RE: Simplification with constraints


Vladimir,

What about

Eliminate[{expr == b*b + c*c + d*d, a*a + b*b + c*c + d*d == 1}, d]
expr == 1 - a^2

Suppose we have a constraint:

a*a+b*b+c*c+d*d==1

What is the most elegant and general way to simplify any expression
considering above constraint for simplification?

For (just a simple) example:

In[]:=simplify[b*b+c*c+d*d]

should give:

Out[]=1-a*a

thanks in advance,
Vladimir
