Minimal representations and algebraic relations for single nested products

by   Carsten Schneider, et al.

Recently, it has been shown constructively how a finite set of hypergeometric products, multibasic hypergeometric products or their mixed versions can be modeled properly in the setting of formal difference rings. Here special emphasis is put on robust constructions: whenever further products have to be considered, one can reuse –up to some mild modifications– the already existing difference ring. In this article we relax this robustness criteria and seek for another form of optimality. We will elaborate a general framework to represent a finite set of products in a formal difference ring where the number of transcendental product generators is minimal. As a bonus we are able to describe explicitly all relations among the given input products.
