mutually relatively prime

A list of integers is mutually relatively prime if there is no integer that divides them all. For example 6, 12, 22 and 27 are mutually relatively prime, but not pairwise relatively prime.

This definition can be easily extended to cover other systems including polynomials with integer coefficients.
