 P: 3,016 In chapter 1 of Axler's LA Done Right, he defines a polynomial as such: "Our next example of a vector space involves polynomials. A function $p:\mathbf{F}\rightarrow\mathbf{F}$ is called a polynomial with coefficients in F ..." Can someone translate this "$p:\mathbf{F}\rightarrow\mathbf{F}$" into words? I have never seen that notation before.
