I don't know the machinery well enough to give a precise answer, but I
believe that your guess is correct. People have implemented the
algorithms and have used them to solve actual equations, so the complexity
can't be that bad. I just looked at Wikipedia and it appears to give a
fairly detailed explanation, probably enough to answer the question if you
spend a little time studying it.
