 Parametric
 solve a set of polynomial equations Calling Sequence Parametric(equations, unknowns, mode=value) Parametric(equations, unknowns, parameters, mode=value) Parameters

 equations - set of polynomial equations unknowns - set of symbols for which to solve parameters - (optional) set of symbols to treat as parameters value - (optional) specify mode (see the Options section) Options

 • mode=value
 This option has three settings, full, lazy (the default), and proviso.  mode=full builds a piecewise solution with a branch for all cases of the solution.  mode=lazy builds a piecewise solution with an explicit solution for the most general case, and an inert function call to compute the rest of the solution if needed using the command value.  mode=proviso returns most of the same information as mode=lazy, but formatted as a list with two elements.  The first element is the most general solution, and the second is a set of conditions that must hold for the solution to be valid. Description

 • Build a full parametric discussion of the solutions to the equations with respect to the given parameters. Examples
