void  check_no_subscribers () const noexcept 
Base class for all 1D polynomials. A polynomial is represented in this class by its coefficients, which are set through the constructor or by derived classes.
There are two paths for evaluation of polynomials. One is based on the coefficients which are evaluated through the Horner scheme which is a robust generalpurpose scheme. An alternative and more stable evaluation of highdegree polynomials with roots in the unit interval is provided by a product in terms of the roots. This form is available for special polynomials such as Lagrange polynomials or Legendre polynomials and used with the respective constructor. To obtain this more stable evaluation form, the constructor with the roots in form of a Lagrange polynomial must be used. In case a manipulation is done that changes the roots, the representation is switched to the coefficient form.
This class is a typical example of a possible template argument for the TensorProductPolynomials class.

Polynomials::Polynomial< number >::Polynomial  (  const std::vector< number > &  coefficients  ) 
Constructor. The coefficients of the polynomial are passed as arguments, and denote the polynomial \(\sum_i a[i] x^i\), i.e. the first element of the array denotes the constant term, the second the linear one, and so on. The degree of the polynomial represented by this object is thus the number of elements in the coefficient
array minus one.
Definition at line 54 of file polynomial.cc.
Polynomials::Polynomial< number >::Polynomial  (  const unsigned int  n  ) 
Constructor creating a zero polynomial of degree n
.
Definition at line 63 of file polynomial.cc.
Polynomials::Polynomial< number >::Polynomial  (  const std::vector< Point< 1 > > &  lagrange_support_points, 
const unsigned int  evaluation_point  
) 
Constructor for a Lagrange polynomial and its point of evaluation. The idea is to construct \(\prod_{i\neq j} \frac{xx_i}{x_jx_i}\), where j is the evaluation point specified as argument and the support points contain all points (including x_j, which will internally not be stored).

Default constructor creating an illegal object.
Definition at line 790 of file polynomial.h.

inline 
Return the value of this polynomial at the given point.
This function uses the most numerically stable evaluation algorithm for the provided form of the polynomial. If the polynomial is in the product form of roots, the evaluation is based on products of the form (x  x_i), whereas the Horner scheme is used for polynomials in the coefficient form.
Definition at line 816 of file polynomial.h.
void Polynomials::Polynomial< number >::value  (  const number  x, 
std::vector< number > &  values  
)  const 
Return the values and the derivatives of the Polynomial at point x
. values[i], i=0,...,values.size()1
includes the i
th derivative. The number of derivatives to be computed is thus determined by the size of the array passed.
This function uses the Horner scheme for numerical stability of the evaluation for polynomials in the coefficient form or the product of terms involving the roots if that representation is used.
Definition at line 101 of file polynomial.cc.

inline 
Return the values and the derivatives of the Polynomial at point x
. values[i], i=0,...,n_derivatives
includes the i
th derivative. The number of derivatives to be computed is determined by n_derivatives
and values
has to provide sufficient space for n_derivatives
+ 1 values.
This function uses the most numerically stable evaluation algorithm for the provided form of the polynomial. If the polynomial is in the product form of roots, the evaluation is based on products of the form (x  x_i), whereas the Horner scheme is used for polynomials in the coefficient form.
The template type Number2
must implement arithmetic operations such as additions or multiplication with the type number
of the polynomial, and must be convertible from number
by operator=
.
Definition at line 846 of file polynomial.h.

inline 
Similar to the function above, but evaluate the polynomials on several positions at once, as described by the array argument points
. This function is can be faster than the other function when the same polynomial should be evaluated on several positions at once, e.g., the x,y,z coordinates of a point for tensorproduct polynomials.

Definition at line 860 of file polynomial.h.

inline 
Degree of the polynomial. This is the degree reflected by the number of coefficients provided by the constructor. Leading nonzero coefficients are not treated separately.
Definition at line 799 of file polynomial.h.
void Polynomials::Polynomial< number >::scale  (  const number  factor  ) 
Scale the abscissa of the polynomial. Given the polynomial p(t) and the scaling t = ax, then the result of this operation is the polynomial q, such that q(x) = p(t).
The operation is performed in place.
Definition at line 166 of file polynomial.cc.
void Polynomials::Polynomial< number >::shift  (  const number2  offset  ) 
Shift the abscissa oft the polynomial. Given the polynomial p(t) and the shift t = x + a, then the result of this operation is the polynomial q, such that q(x) = p(t).
The template parameter allows to compute the new coefficients with higher accuracy, since all computations are performed with type number2
. This may be necessary, since this operation involves a big number of additions. On a Sun Sparc Ultra with Solaris 2.8, the difference between double
and long double
was not significant, though.
The operation is performed in place, i.e. the coefficients of the present object are changed.
