Calling Sequence

EvaluatePolynomial(a, [c0, c1, ..., cn])

EvaluatePolynomial(a, [c0, c1, ..., cn], precopt)

Parameters

a

-

a RealBox object

c0, c1, ..., cn

-

real constants or RealBox objects

precopt

-

(optional) equation of the form precision = n, where n is a positive integer

Description

• 

The EvaluatePolynomial command evaluates a dense univariate polynomial at a RealBox object. It does this in a manner that sometimes produces a smaller radius than simple evaluation using the standard arithmetic operations.

• 

The first argument is a RealBox object, representing the value at which the polynomial is to be evaluated.

• 

The second argument is a list of n+1 coefficients of the polynomial to be evaluated, where n is the degree of the polynomial. The first entry is the constant coefficient, the second the linear coefficient, and so on. Each coefficient can be a RealBox object or a real constant.

Compatibility

• 

The RealBox:-EvaluatePolynomial command was introduced in Maple 2023.
