To round off this example, I would like to briefly complete the background to this question: i2 is the general form of an elliptic curve with 17-torsion point P = (0,0) and base point O. i1 describes the relationship between the parameters e and f and is usually referred as X_1(17). poly1 and poly2 are meremorphic functions on the elliptic curve with the divisors div (poly1) = 4[P] + 2[4P] +[-4P] +[-8P] +[-8P] - 8[O]  and div (poly2) =[4P] +[-4P] - 2[O]  Thus, the quotient has the divisor div (poly1/poly2) = 4[P] +[4P] +[-8P] - 6[O]  and can therefore be represented as a denomination-free polynomial, since the base point O is the only pole. 2018-02-05 14:57:18 -0600 received badge ● Student (source) 2018-02-05 02:07:50 -0600 received badge ● Editor (source) 2018-02-02 15:28:10 -0600 answered a question Bug report: Kernel dies after 1 hour while dividing polynomials I repeat my posting since many multiplication signs are not shown in the original post: SAGE source code: Q.< E,F,X,Y > = QQ['E', 'F', 'X', 'Y'];
