Polynomials appear in mathematics frequently, and we all know from experience that low degree polynomials are easier to deal with than high degree ones. It is, however, not clear that there is a well defined class of " low degree " polynomials. For many questions, polynomials behave well if their degree is low enough, but the precise bound on the degree… CONTINUE READING
