I am trying to compute the eigenvalues of a 16x16 matrix whose eigenvalues are multivariate polynomials in 4 variables of degree at most 3 and integer coefficients. When I try to do so using the Symbolic Ring SR my machine quickly runs out of memory (~15GB available I believe).

I tried to change the ring to the fraction field of a Multivariate Polynomial Ring over Rational Field, and this allows to quickly compute the characteristic polynomial and its roots, without killing my machine. Unfortunately though some of the eigenvalues are not rational functions, so they do not show ~~up.~~up. This is what I did

```
