Given a polynomial $f(x,y)$ I [think I] need a GP instruction allowing me to find a [or, rather, the] Laurent series in $z=x$, or $z=x^{-1}$, or $z=x^{1/n}$ or $z=\ldots$ (my choice; the program will complain about my idiotic choice if it is [idiotic], perhaps telling me that I needed a fractional power). Have I overlooked an existing PARI instruction? Has Henri overlooked a useful instruction? Surely, algebraic series are as deserving as algebraic numbers? I sort of know how to do it `by hand' but that requires thought. I was hoping just to press buttons. My current particular need is to do it over finite fields. ------------------------ Alf vdP alf@mpce.mq.edu.au phone: +61 2 9850 8947 fax: +61 2 9850 8114 home: +61 2 9416 6026 mobile: +61 4 1826 3129 (from MQ: #6335)
