Now dividing y13+xy6+1 by y-x+1 and taking advantage of an equality x2=2y we get
A(y)+xB(y), where

A(y) and B(y) are symmetrical so we reduce the coeffs by representing poly with root z=227+2-26. We get 12th degree polynomial and in fact this is trilliwig's formula %9.

wblipp, I don't understand how to "pull out" 2,2M, too.


Yes, I was looking for formula %9. I was hoping that it might be
symmetric. It is not, but I thought that if it isn't, it might have a
representation as a sextic not in (z+1/z), but rather [with Z = 2^53]
in (z + 2/z). It seems that it does, but the constant is much too large.
Perhaps we might try a sextic in (z + k/z) for some other value of k?
