bpolynomial v0.5, released on 2007-12-12 Description

The MetaPost package bpolynomial helps plotting polynomial and root functions. It provides macros to calculate one-segment Bezier curves exactly matching a given cubic polynomial or square or cubic root function. Additionally, tangents on all functions and derivatives of polynomials can be calculated. Changes in v0.5: * New: + The package can now compute paths of square and cubic roots. + Added a plain interface. * Changes: + Improved documentation.

## bpolynomial – Drawing polynomial functions of up to order 3

This METAPOST package helps plotting polynomial and root functions up to order three. The package provides macros to calculate Bézier curves exactly matching a given constant, linear, quadratic or cubic polynomial, or square or cubic root function. In addition, tangents on all functions and derivatives of polynomials can be calculated.
