# Is there a notation for polynomial division?

In number theory, for any given integers $a,b$, $a|b$ is defined to mean $a \text{ divides } b$.

What about polynomials division? Or any ring? Is $f(X)|g(X)$ generally used to mean $f(X) \text{ divides } g(X)$?

Yes, $f(X)\mid g(X)$ or $f\mid g$. – Frank Science Feb 8 '13 at 5:57
Just, I would call it divisibility. I believe division is usually reserved for Euclidean division, when it can be done. – Andreas Caranti Feb 8 '13 at 6:25
