I want to simplify a polynomial by factorizing the most of the terms as possible(that means a product of terms plus a small other number of terms). I didn't find how to do such incomplete factorization. Is there a command to do it. Factor works only for complete factorizations. \!\(Simplify[2 - Î» - Î»\^2 - 3\ hmb\ \((\(-2\) + Î» + Î»\^2)\) + hmb\^3\ \((5 - 12\ Î» + 4\ Î»\^2)\) + hmb\^2\ \((6 - 3\ Î» - 8\ Î»\^2 + 2\ Î»\^3)\)]\) Thank you.
