Polynomials
Every integer, real, double-precision or complex vector corresponds to a descending polynomial . In addition, if it is a column vector, it corresponds to a polynomial stored in ascending order. Some of the routines below operate on polynomials stored in ascending order while others operate on polynomials stored in descending order. The routine reverse can be used to convert from one ordering to the other.

Ascending Polynomial Routines
 `pol2asc` Displaying A Polynomial `polval` Evaluating A Polynomial `poladd` Adding Polynomials `polmul` Polynomial Multiplication `polcomp` Composition Of Polynomials As Functions `polder` Computing the Derivative of a Polynomial `zero2pol` Converting A Set Of Roots To A Polynomial `pol2zero` Using Laguerre's Method to Find The Roots of a Polynomial `polcheb` Computing Chebyshev Polynomial Coefficients `polyfit` Least Squares Fit of a Descending Polynomial to Data

Descending Polynomial Routines
