Fast Expand Computation for Products of Polynomials 

Shown are timings for computing the Expand of a product of two dense polynomials of degree in four variables with 100-bit coefficients. The experiment was performed on a 24-core Intel Xeon 3.07 GHz 64-bit Linux system, with a time limit of 3600 seconds. The number at the bottom tells how many times faster Mathematica 9 is than Maple 16.
