Evaluate polynomial expression
Math Functions / Polynomial Functions
The Polynomial Evaluation block applies a polynomial function to the real or complex
input at the
y = polyval(u) % Equivalent MATLAB code
When you select the Use constant coefficients check box, you
specify the polynomial expression in the Constant coefficients
parameter. When you do not select Use constant coefficients, a
variable polynomial expression is specified by the input to the
Coeffs port. In both cases, the polynomial is specified as a
vector of real or complex coefficients in order of descending exponents.
The table below shows some examples of the block's operation for various coefficient vectors.
|Coefficient Vector||Equivalent Polynomial Expression|
Each element of a vector or matrix input to the
In port is
processed independently, and the output size is the same as the input.

- Constant coefficients
Specify the vector of polynomial coefficients to apply to the input, in order of descending exponents. This parameter is enabled when you select the Use constant coefficients check box.
