Although they are the values of elementary symetric polynomials - but only on variables r2,..,rn (and not r1 also) - and so I think they cannot be expressed (necessarily) by coeffitients of P.<br />E.g. having cubic equation with rational coeffitients and roots x1,x2,x3, then elementary symmetric polynomials on x2,x3 are also not necessarily rational...<br />Thank you very much for your explanationcheckdrummerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14957131757907484585noreply@blogger.com
