EvaluatePolynomial - Maple Help

RealBox

 EvaluatePolynomial
 evaluate a univariate polynomial at a RealBox object

 Calling Sequence EvaluatePolynomial(a, [c0, c1, ..., cn]) EvaluatePolynomial(a, [c0, c1, ..., cn], precopt)

Parameters

 a - a RealBox object c0, c1, ..., cn - real constants or RealBox objects precopt - (optional) equation of the form precision = n, where n is a positive integer

Description

 • The EvaluatePolynomial command evaluates a dense univariate polynomial at a RealBox object. It does this in a manner that sometimes produces a smaller radius than simple evaluation using the standard arithmetic operations.
 • The first argument is a RealBox object, representing the value at which the polynomial is to be evaluated.
 • The second argument is a list of $n+1$ coefficients of the polynomial to be evaluated, where $n$ is the degree of the polynomial. The first entry is the constant coefficient, the second the linear coefficient, and so on. Each coefficient can be a RealBox object or a real constant.

Compatibility

 • The RealBox:-EvaluatePolynomial command was introduced in Maple 2023.
