DI COSTANZO commented on MATH-683:
----------------------------------

No. I don't want to modify the "value" method. I just want to add a new "shift" method transforming
the current polynomial defined as an array of coeffcient in increasing 'x' power, by a new
polynomial where 'x' is replaced by 'x+a', a beeing a double value. The signature could be
something like this :

PolynomialFunction shift(final double shift){
}

So, if the initial polynomial is given by :
P1 = sum(ai * x^i) (i = 0...n)

The new polynomial created by the "shift" method will be :
P2 = sum(ai * (x + a)^i) (i = 0...n)

> Create a method shift to transform a polynomial P(k) in P(k + a) where a is any double
value.
> The polynomial sum(ai * k^i) turns into sum(ai * (k+a)^i)
