[mg4720] HELP:problems simplifying big matrices
writes,
>>>>>>
I wish to simplify large matrices by identifying occurrences of
specific algebraic expressions and replacing them with a variable
name. The problem is that unless the expressions to be
replaced occur in precisely the form specified by the given
transformation rule it doesn't spot them. Any simple solutions?
<<<<<<<<

Stephen,
I wonder if something along the lines of

{1/x +x, (1+x^2)/x}/. r_/;MatchQ[Simplify[r],1/x +x] ->p

{p, p}

might help (you may need to use something else instead of Simplify).
