Then A(x) [approximately equal to] B(x), where B(x) has the form (2) in which co deg [b.sub.2] = co deg [a.sub.2], co deg [b.sub.3] [greater than or equal to] co deg [b.sub.2] and in [b.sub.1] (x) the monomial of degree 2co deg [b.sub.1] = 2co deg [a.sub.1] is absent.
According to the basic characteristics of (3), the monomial coefficient is related to the reciprocal of the square of the fracture aperture.

For comparison of efficiency, we also do some evaluation using the direct algorithm [mathematical expression not reproducible] represents each monomial for polynomial F and w = [([2.sup.s] + 1).sup.m].
where [C.sub.0](v) is the sum of all the monomials that do not contain u and [C.sub.1] (u, v) is the result of dividing all u-containing monomials by u.
Before we proceed to this result, discussed in Section 3, we will illustrate our combinatorial methodology on a simpler case of the action on monomials and provide a link with combinatorial model of Hermite polynomials (cf.
Specifically, consider the monomial basis of Po[l.sub.n]([R.sup.2]):
However, this requires cost functions and basic equations to be posynomial and/or monomial format [5]-[9].
But here we use the Chebyshev polynomial of the first kind to replace the monomial term [s.sup.n], instead of the Chebyshev polynomial of the second kind as shown in [16].
Substituting S(r) with the Zth-degree monomial [r.sup.l], we obtain
where [x.sup.i] s are monomial bases and ats are real coefficients to be determined.
