A polynomial is a very unsophisticated mathematical object. It is simply a function which, given an input, transforms it using a finite sequence of scalings and additions . Finding its roots (or solving it) is a natural inversion problem: for any number, we want to find all the inputs (roots) that will produce this number. The goal of this paper is to… CONTINUE READING
