This package factors multivariate polynomials over the domain of AlgebraicNumber by allowing the user to specify a list of algebraic numbers generating the particular extension to factor over.

- factor: (P, List AlgebraicNumber) -> Factored P
`factor(p, lan)`

factors the polynomial`p`

over the extension generated by the algebraic numbers given by the list lan.

- factor: (SparseUnivariatePolynomial P, List AlgebraicNumber) -> Factored SparseUnivariatePolynomial P
`factor(p, lan)`

factors the polynomial`p`

over the extension generated by the algebraic numbers given by the list lan.`p`

is presented as a univariate polynomial with multivariate coefficients.
