a. a mathematical expression consisting of a sum of terms each of which is the product of a constant and one or more variables raised to a positive or zero integral power. For one variable, x, the general form is given by: a0xn + a1xn–1 + … + an–1x + an, where a0, a1, etc, are real numbers
b. Also called: multinomial any mathematical expression consisting of the sum of a number of terms
2. (Biology) biology a taxonomic name consisting of more than two terms, such as Parus major minor in which minor designates the subspecies

This increases the numbers of equations and variables and the degrees of the polynomials in the multi-linear models that are required.
This article does not propose to discuss the origins of the method for long division of polynomials known to many as synthetic division, nor to discuss whether it should be known as Horner's method as ascribed to William Horner by Augustus De Morgan (Robertson & O'Connor, 2005) or as some cousin of the Chinese remainder theorem developed by Qin Jiushao (Joseph, 2011).
Thus it is of interest to find irreducible polynomials having a small number of trace-one elements in their polynomial bases.
This contribution is intended to describe the application of the value set concept in combination with the zero exclusion condition under robust D-stability framework adopted from [1] for analyzing robust stability of discrete-time polynomials with nonlinear uncertainty structure.

This result appears in [6], where it is proved that the Laurent polynomials of Hermite-Fejdr interpolation related to a continuous function on T uniformly converge to the function, with the nodal system constituted by the nth roots of some complex number with modulus one.
