The problem

Minimal factors exist if and only if there exist tex2html_wrap_inline4818 , tex2html_wrap_inline4820 , tex2html_wrap_inline4822 , tex2html_wrap_inline4824 , a, b, c, e, f and g such that the following polynomials are zero.


Each of these expressions must equal 0. Here A, B and C are known.

The problem is to solve these equations. That is, we want a constructive theorem which says when and how they can be solved.
