Abstract

Let K be a field. Every reader of this book will have written expressions like
$$ {a_{n}}{t^{n}} + {a_{{n - 1}}}{t^{{n - 1}}} + \cdots + {a_{{\text{o}}}} $$
, where a0,...,a n are real or complex numbers. We could also take these to be elements of K. But what does “t” mean? Or powers of “t” like t, t 2 ,...,t n ?
