for ζ, functions of the indeterminates x, a, b, c, ...,Indeed the coefficients of z transform individually into coefficients of ζ by the substitutions l′=λ′, l"=λ", l"′=λ"′, ..., and moreover into coefficients of Z by the substitutions l′=L′, l"=L", l"′=L"′, .... The same things which we have said about the coefficients only are also true of the discriminants of the polynomials ζ, z, Z. We shall now look more closely at these, with the object of proving the Theorem 1 If P ≠ 0 then the discriminant of the polynomial Z cannot be identically 0.
for z, functions of the indeterminates x, l′, l", l"′, ...,
for Z, functions solely of the indeterminate x.
