Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-683) Create a method shift in the PolynomialFunction class

Sébastien Brisard commented on MATH-683:
----------------------------------------

I think you might want to specify whether or not you would like at some point to be able to
retrieve the coefficients of {{P2}}. In other words, do you need {{P2}} to be a {{PolynomialFunction}}
or do you merely need to be able to compose {{P1}} and a shifter, which would return {{P2}}
as a {{UnivariateRealFunction}}, e.g
{code}
final PolynomialFunction p1 = PolynomialsUtils.createLegendrePolynomial(10);
final double a = 1.;
UnivariateRealFunction p2 = new UnivariateRealFunction(){
public double value(final double x){
return p1.value(x+a);
}
}
{code}
I suspect the answer is the first option, since you also requested for the Pascale Triangle...

value.
> The polynomial sum(ai * k^i) turns into sum(ai * (k+a)^i)
