numpy.poly() in Python

• Last Updated : 04 Dec, 2020

The numpy.poly() function in the Sequence of roots of the polynomial returns the coefficient of the polynomial.

Syntax :numpy.poly(seq)

Parameters :
Seq : sequence of roots of the polynomial roots, or a matrix of roots.

Return: 1D array having coefficients of the polynomial from the highest degree to the lowest one.
c * x**(N) + c * x**(N-1) + … + c[N-1] * x + c[N] where c always equals 1.

Output :

Coefficients of the polynomial:  [ 1. -3.  2.  0.]

Above polynomial =

Output :

Coefficients of the polynomial:  [  1. -11.  46. -92.  88. -32.   0.]

Above polynomial =
6      5      4      3      2
1 x - 11 x + 46 x - 92 x + 88 x - 32 x
