Polynomials-2 vars

  1. Aug 25, 2005 #1
    how does one look like???I mean whats the general form? e.g. for a 1 var poly...general form = a0+a1x+a2^2+...+anx^n

    and how could I represent that by a matrix?


    Thanks

    How about

    [tex]a_0 x^n + a_1 x^{n-1} y + a_3 x^{n-2} y^2 + \cdot \cdot \cdot + a_n y^n + P(x) + Q(y)[/tex]

    where P and Q are polynomials in their respective arguments?

    Arguments - meaning P(x) is a polynomial in x and Q(y) is a polynomial in y.
