- Polynomials -
**drwls**, Saturday, November 27, 2010 at 6:52pmPolynomials are a natural outgrowth of algebra.

Algebra was introduced by the Babylonians about 4000 years ago. It was later refined independently by the Indian Brahmagupta and the Muslim Al-Khwarizmi. Somewhere in their writing they probably considered polynomials, but the name came later.

The use of raised numbers for exponents was introduced by Rene Descartes in the 1600s. He also developed many theorems about how to solve polynomials.
