http://ask.sagemath.org/question/34994/symbolic-calculation-for-resultant/?answer=34995#post-id-34995You could compute it for any value of $i$ and $j$, but I don't think Sage provides a way to enter polynomials with symbolic exponents.Fri, 30 Sep 2016 01:55:28 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/34994/symbolic-calculation-for-resultant/?answer=34995#post-id-34995
