Hi Tom,

This is not about your question but just a side note:

The expression looks to me unnecessarily cryptic. I believe a simpler
one can be obtained from series multisection
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Series_multisection#Example of
Also the internal product seems to be simply the square root of
discriminant of the polynomial x^4-x+z w.r.t. x (which can be computed
even without knowing zeroes of the polynomial) - why not rewrite it
this way?
