Polynomial fits might make sense over short periods of time while changes are roughly linear, or running through a maximum since almost every max/min is quadratic.

Polynomial equations and the algebraic numbers that represent their solutions have been one of the great success stories of pure mathematics.

P (for Polynomial) is the class that contains all the computational decision problems that can be solved by a deterministic Turing machine at a polynomial cost.

Thus, either discovery would contribute much more to “explicating fundamental physical concepts” than the mere confirmation of our current belief: namely, that the class of functions that are feasibly computable in physical reality coincides with BoundedError Quantum PolynomialTime.

Polynomialtime Turing machines are indeed a mathematical construct, but the reason people studied them in the first place is that they believed they accurately modelled what can efficiently be computed in the physical world.

Polynomial time methods for finding an agent's optimal agenda were presented.

· The divisor in the Standard error about the line calculation that is one of the outputs of the Polynomial Curve Fit command has been changed from n1 to n .

Writing under the formidable title, "Polynomial Cointegration Tests of the Anthropogenic Theory of Global Warming", they find that the wrong statistical methods are being used, showing up a "spurious correlation".
