# Polynomials

From OeisWiki

**Polynomials** are expressions summing powers with zero (constant polynomials), one (univariate polynomials), two (bivariate polynomials), three (trivariate polynomials), or more variables. For example, is a polynomial (e.g. a bivariate quadrinomial). The monomials 12 × 7 and are constant polynomials. Polynomials may have one term (monomials), two terms (binomials), three terms (trinomials), etc.
