Abstract

We propose two algorithms that for any ring $R$, given a doubly unitary Laurent polynomial $g \in R[X,X^{-1} ]$, compute $h \in R[X,X^{-1}]$ such that $gh \in R[ X^{-1}+X ]$ and $gh$ is monic. The first algorithm is directly extracted from the classical proof. The second algorithm is more direct and simpler. It relies on a symmetrization technique.
