# Revision history [back]

Why is that? Both functions work identically

sage: E = (x^2 + 2*x + 1) / (x + 1)
sage: E
(x^2 + 2*x + 1)/(x + 1)
sage: E.full_simplify()
x + 1
sage: E.simplify_full()
x + 1


Actually one is an alias of the other

sage: E.full_simplify == E.simplify_full


I would rather update the documentation to mention that both names are valid.
