RESULTANT AND DISCRIMINANT OF ITERATE POLYNOMIALS Choi, Eun-Mi;
The resultant and discriminant of composite polynomials were studied by McKay and Wang using some algebraic properties. In this paper we study the resultant and discriminant of iterate polynomials. We shall use elementary computations of matrices and block matrix determinants; this could provide not only the values but also the visual structure of resultant and discriminant from elementary matrix calculation.
