Could someone elaborate on the status of the simplification routines in SAGE? I've noticed that the simplify_full can't exactly be said to compete with e.g. mathematica's corresponding FullSimplify...
I don't know if the simplify functions operate as replacement rules or such, but if they do, I might be able to contribute in the development (I'm not much of a programmer though).
So could someone please explain about how simplify_full and other simplification functions work, and how I and others can participate? This post could work as an info for all who want to take part!H.

sage: a, b = var('a, b'); simplify((a + b)^2 - a^2 - 2*a*b - b^2)
and I would expect 0 (i.e. zero) as a result from simplify(),
but instead I get back unmodified:
(a + b)^2 - a^2 - 2*a*b - b^2
Am I missing anything?
I just started using it and it looks very promissing...ryszard314159Wed, 04 May 2011 10:35:34 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8101/
