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.

It is shown that, they are rich enough to provide asymptotically, exponentially and polynomially stable numerical methods discretizing stable continuous time SDEs by controlling the choice of their weights.
Such sequences are called polynomially recursive (P-recursive for short) and are characterized by the fact that their (ordinary or exponential) generating series are D-finite (i.
