  1. Polynomial

    In mathematics, polynomials are the simplest class of mathematical expressions. A polynomial is an expression constructed from variables and constants, using only the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative integer exponents. However, the division by a constant is allowed, because the multiplicative inverse of a non-zero constant is also a constant. For example, x² − x/4 + 7 is a polynomial, but x² − 4/x + 7x3/2 is an algebraic expression that is not a polynomial, because its second term involves a division by the variable x, and also because its third term contains an exponent that is not a non-negative integer. A polynomial function is a function which is defined by a polynomial. Sometimes, the term polynomial is reserved for the polynomials that are explicitly written as a sum of terms involving only multiplications and exponentiation by non negative integer exponents. In this context, the other polynomials are called polynomial expressions. For example, is a polynomial expression that represents the same thing as the polynomial The term "polynomial", as an adjective, can also be used for quantities that can be expressed as a polynomial of some parameter, as in polynomial time, which is used in computational complexity theory.
