Unexpected failure of method "algebra"
Open, LowPublic

Description

Rodrigo Raya reported on isabelle-users (10-Jan-2020) the following unexpected failure of the method "algebra", e.g. in Isabelle2020:

theory Scratch
  imports Main
begin 

lemma ideal_membership_2:
  fixes x0 x1 y0 y1 t :: "'b::idom"
  assumes "x0 ≠ 0" "y0 ≠ 0" "x1 ≠ 0" "y1 ≠ 0"
  shows "∃ q1 q2 q3 q4.
          y0^2 - x1^2 =
              q1*(-1 + x0^2 + y0^2 - t^2 * x0^2 * y0^2) +
              q2*(-1 + x1^2 + y1^2 - t^2 * x1^2 * y1^2) +
              q3*(x0 * y0 - x1 * y1) +
              q4*(x1 * y0 + x0 * y1)"
  using assms apply algebra
