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

Gilles commented on MATH-683:
-----------------------------

Yes, please attach everything that could be useful to figure out what is the required functionality.
So, if I understand correctly, what you really request is the function that would compute
the new  coefficients ("bi"):
{noformat}
Ps(k) = Sum bi * k^i
= Sum ai * (k + a)^i
= P(k + a)
{noformat}

This functionality should probably go in the "PolynomialsUtils" class:
{code}
public static double[] shiftedPolynomialCoefficients(double[] c, double shift) {
// ...
}
{code}

> 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)
