Aruliah (UOIT) Polynomials MATH 2070U 2 / 22 Polynomials Polynomials & MATLAB Taylor polynomials Polynomials Monomials: x 1, x 1 x , x 2 , x 3 , x 4 , . . . Polynomials: linear combinations of monomials f ( x ) = n k = a n- k x n- k = a n x n + a n- 1 x n- 1 + + a 1 x + a (assume coefficients a , a 1 , . . . , a n R or C ) deg ( f ( x )) = degree of f ( x ) = largest exponent in f ( x ) Leading coefficient: coefficient a n of highest degree monomial c D. Aruliah (UOIT) Polynomials MATH 2070U 4 / 22 Polynomials Polynomials & MATLAB Taylor polynomials Classifications of polynomials Degree Name Example constant f ( x ) = 4 1 linear f ( x ) = 3 x- 2 2 quadratic f ( x ) = x 2- x + 4 3 cubic f ( x ) = 4 x 3- x 2 4 quartic f ( x ) = 6 x 4 + ( 3/2 ) x 3- 7 x 2- 5 x- 3/7 5 quintic f ( x ) =- 2 x 5 + 4 x 4- x 3 + x 2 /2- 4 x + 7 For degree n > 3, preferred terminology polynomial of degree n Binomial: exactly 2 nonzero terms (e.g., x 3- 4 x ) Trinomial: exactly 3 nonzero terms (e.g., 3 x 4- x 2 + 1) Monic polynomial: leading coefficient a n = 1 c D.
