### WildLinAlg21: More bases of polynomial spaces

Polynomial spaces are excellent examples of linear spaces. For example, the space of polynomials of degree three or less forms a linear or vector psace which we call P^3. In this lecture we look at some more interesting bases of this space: the Lagrange, Chebyshev, Bernstein and Spread polynomial basis. The last comes from Rational Trigonometry.This is one of a series on Linear Algebra given by N J Wildberger of UNSW.CONTENT SUMMARY: pg 1:? @00:08 Introduction review; polynomials of degree 3; Lagrange, Chebyshev, Bernstein, spread polynomials; basis: standard/power, factorial, Taylor; Lagrange polynomials developed 02:18;pg 2: @03:53 Lagrange developement continued; evaluation mapping;pg 3: @06:13 Lagrange developement continued; polynomials that map to the standard basis vectors e1,e2,e3,34 (Lagrange interpolation polynomials);pg? 4: @09:12 Lagrange basis; Polynomial that goes through four desired points;pg 5: @11:39 Uniform approximation and Bernstein polynomialspg 6: @13:42 reference to Pascal's triangle; Bernstein polynomials (named); Bernstein basis;pg 7: @16:37 view of Bernstein polynomials;pg 8: @18:06 Show that Bernstein polynomials of a certain degree do form a basis for that corresponding polynomial space; Pascal's triangle;?
