Description Christoph Hertzberg 2013-11-05 18:12:01 UTC
The polynomial module currently lacks very basic features such as polynomial multiplication, and division/modulus.
To me this is very low priority, but I think it is mandatory before moving this module into the stable part.

Another thing that would be nice to have is polynomial evaluation on Array or Matrix types.

Directly adding polynomials of different degree is also not possible at the moment -- I think a clean solution will require to introduce a class for polynomials which essentially only holds a vector but redefines addition and multiplication.

Polynomial could have options like UnitPolynomial if the highest coefficient is implicitly 1, and EvenPolynomial/OddPolynomial if it only has even or odd coefficients.

Polynomial should also implement things such as Map<Polynomial<Scalar, Degree> >(...)
