## Detailed Description

Nth degree Polynomial with two variables.

This is a derived class from BasisFunction which provides the capabilities of a polynomial equation in two variables with degree n, where n is specified during the object construction. For example, Degree = 1 z = a + b*x + c*y Degree = 2 z = a + b*x + c*y + d*x**2 + e*x*y + f*y**2 Degree = 3 z = a + b*x + c*y + d*x**2 + e*x*y + f*y**2 + g*x**3 + h*x**2*y + i*x*y**2 + j*y**3 In general the number of coefficients will be ((degree+1)*(degree+2))/2.

## Constructor & Destructor Documentation

 Isis::PolynomialBivariate::PolynomialBivariate ( int degree )

Create a PolynomialBivariate object.

Parameters:
 degree The order/degree of the polynomial
 Isis::PolynomialBivariate::~PolynomialBivariate ( ) ` [inline]`

Destroys the PolynomialBivariate object.

## Member Function Documentation

 double Isis::BasisFunction::Coefficient ( int i ) const` [inline, inherited]`

Returns the ith coefficient.

Parameters:
 i The index for the desired coefficient.
Returns:
The ith coefficient

References Isis::BasisFunction::p_coefs.

 int Isis::BasisFunction::Coefficients ( ) const` [inline, inherited]`

Returns the number of coefficients for the equation.

Returns:
The number of coefficients.

References Isis::BasisFunction::p_numCoefs.

 double Isis::BasisFunction::Evaluate ( const std::vector< double > & vars ) ` [inherited]`

Compute the equation using the input variables.

Parameters:
 vars A vector of double values to use for the equation. After setting the coefficients, this can be invoked many times to compute output values given input values.
Returns:
The output value.
 void Isis::PolynomialBivariate::Expand ( const std::vector< double > & vars ) ` [virtual]`

This is the the overriding virtual function that provides the expansion of the two input variables into the polynomial equation.

Parameters:
 vars A vector of double values to use for the expansion.

Reimplemented from Isis::BasisFunction.

References Isis::BasisFunction::p_terms, and size.

 QString Isis::BasisFunction::Name ( ) const` [inline, inherited]`

Returns the name of the equation.

Returns:
The name of the equation.

References Isis::BasisFunction::p_name.

 void Isis::BasisFunction::SetCoefficients ( const std::vector< double > & coefs ) ` [inherited]`

Set the coefficients for the equation.

Parameters:
 coefs A vector of coefficients for the equation.
 double Isis::BasisFunction::Term ( int c ) const` [inline, inherited]`

Returns the cth term.

This is only valid after a Evalute/Expand has been invoked. It represents the expansion of the variables into the ith term. For example,

would return x*y for the 3rd term (zero-based)

Parameters:
 c The index for the desired coefficient.
Returns:
The cth term.

References Isis::BasisFunction::p_terms.

 int Isis::BasisFunction::Variables ( ) const` [inline, inherited]`

Returns the number of variables in the equation.

Returns:
The number of variables.
