### A remarkable elimination involving the basic reproduction number R0

I have a polynomial pol of third order, whose coefficients depend on 5 parameters, and whose free coefficient is proportional to R0-1, where R0 is a certain rational function of the parameters (the ...

### Implementing einsum in Mathematica

I've been using Carl Woll's einsum function, but it's missing the ability to handle repeated indices. For instance np.einsum('i,i->i',w, w) will perform a ...

### Speeding up ComplexExpand

I have a code where I have to take the dot product of two lists, that contain some symbols, and then use ComplexExpand. For a long list it take a very long time and ...

### Compute real and imaginary part of parametrized complex rational expression

I would like to compute the real and imaginary part of a complex valued rational function $Z_b=\frac{1}{\frac{1}{\frac{1}{C_1 \text{i$\omega $}}+L \text{i$\omega $}+R}+C_2 \text{i$\omega $}}$ that ...

### Simplify radical expression (a + b - Sqrt[a^2 - b^2])/Sqrt[a + b]

I have the following expansions: $\frac{a+b-\sqrt{a^2-b^2}}{\sqrt{a+b}}$ and $a>b>0$ Obviously we can simplify it further by hand $\sqrt{a+b}-\sqrt{a-b}$, but Mathematica doesn't know how to ...
