Hello, I have an expression like μ^8+4μ^6ν^2+6μ^4ν^4+4μ^2ν^6+ν^8 This is the same as ( μ^2+ν^2 )^4 Is there a method in SageMath to simplify the first expression so that I get the second expression? Thanks for any reply

Yes, this is just a factorization:

sage: var('μ,ν')
sage: (μ^8+4*μ^6*ν^2+6*μ^4*ν^4+4*μ^2*ν^6+ν^8).factor()
(μ^2 + ν^2)^4
