2. Mathematics
a. An algebraic expression consisting of one or more summed terms, each term consisting of a constant multiplier and one or more variables raised to nonnegative integral powers. For example, x2 - 5x + 6 and 2p3q + y are polynomials. Also called multinomial.
b. An expression of two or more terms.

polynomial
