splitting field of a polynomial |
I would like to do some calculations in the splitting field of a polynomial, so I thought pari/gp would be the right software for this. I imagined that there would be a function that gives a Q-basis of the splitting field once the polynomial is given. But I've been searching hard and I haven't found anything but nf and so on, which does not perform what I want: It gives only Q[x], where x is a zero of the irreducible) polynomial, and not Q[x1,...,xn], where x1,...,xn are all the zeros of the polynomial. Is the any function that handles this?
