The Vandermonde Indexing Function

 

Description

Examples

Description

• 

The Vandermonde indexing function can be used to construct rtable objects of type Array or Matrix.

• 

In the specification of a Matrix, if Vandermonde[V] is included in the calling sequence as an indexing function, where V is a Vector or a list of algebraic values or a name, a Vandermonde Matrix is returned.

  

Note:    A Vandermonde Matrix is a Matrix with entries M[i,j] = V[i]^(j-1).

• 

The specification is the same in the construction of an Array.
