(pŏl′ē-nō′mē-əl)
adj.
Of, relating to, or consisting of more than two names or terms.
n.
1. A taxonomic designation consisting of more than two terms.
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

a relationship between two variables such that y = a + bx + cx2 + ... qxn. A straight line is y = a + bx. Any curve can be approximated with a polynomial formula.

The best mathematical polynomial model describing the results of our experiments is expressed by a second degree equation y=a +bx+cx2 relation being always graphically expressed by a parabola.
Had this division been done by traditional polynomial long-division, the calculation would have appeared thus:
As a result, we can say that Rivlin model is not an exclusive model but it is a model which covers various polynomial combinations.
We still use the Newton function to investigate the polynomial f(x) with the following two properties.
This contribution is intended to describe the application of the value set concept in combination with the zero exclusion condition under robust D-stability framework adopted from [1] for analyzing robust stability of discrete-time polynomials with nonlinear uncertainty structure.
Thus one hesitates in using the above lemma for the solutions of polynomial congruences with higher power moduli.
Our primary motivation to study the Tutte polynomial came from the remarkable connection between the Tutte and the Jones polynomials that up to a sign and multiplication by a power of t the Jones polynomial of an alternating link is equal to the Tutte polynomial [19, 16, 11].
The product of the rth elementary symmetric polynomial in k variables with a Schubert polynomial was formulated by Lascoux and Schutzenberger [19] in analogy with the classical Pieri rule above.
