Hello,
Does anyone know if this makes sense or is usable?

I've only been able to describe it through a graph.
Instead of the x axis being numbers, being powers of x.

Let me clarify - where normally would be x=0,1,2,3... would now be x^0, x^1, x^2, x^3
and the y axis would be values of coefficients in a polynomial / coefficients in a power series.

Does anyone know of anything like this?
I thought it up yesterday and have been intrigued by it.
I don't know how to work with it though.

thanks
austin
Yes, it's called a log scale.
