Dear all,

I have a arithmetic problem.
I have an expression expr = (p1 + 2*p2)*(k1 + 2*k2)
where p1 + p2 = k1 + k2
I wanna make the following change of variables,
s = (p1 + p2)^2
t = (p1 - k1)^2
u = (p1 - k2)^2

Is it possible to tell Mathematica to express expr
in terms of s, t, and u automatically?

Thanks so much.
any ideas would be appreciated.
Sincerely Barrow
