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 [itex]p:\mathbf{F}\rightarrow\mathbf{F}[/itex] is called a polynomial with coefficients in
F ..."

Can someone translate this "[itex]p:\mathbf{F}\rightarrow\mathbf{F}[/itex]" into words? I have never seen that notation before.
