numpy.polynomial.polynomial.polyvander(x, deg)
[source]
Vandermonde matrix of given degree.
Returns the Vandermonde matrix of degree deg
and sample points x
. The Vandermonde matrix is defined by
where 0 <= i <= deg
. The leading indices of V
index the elements of x
and the last index is the power of x
.
If c
is a 1D array of coefficients of length n + 1
and V
is the matrix V = polyvander(x, n)
, then np.dot(V, c)
and polyval(x, c)
are the same up to roundoff. This equivalence is useful both for least squares fitting and for the evaluation of a large number of polynomials of the same degree and sample points.
