Hi everyone.

My name is Pawel Kieliszczyk. I'm a student of Wroclaw University of
Technology in Poland.
My idea for a GSoC project was to biuld an advanced library for polynomial
manipulation. Boost offers a simple class with basic operations here:
and usefull functions here:

John Maddock suggested me via e-mail to improve and extend this library.
I would like to introduce to you my proposals.

What could be added?
- multiplication algorithm using FFT
- '/', '/=', '%' and '%=' operators
- greatest common divisor of polynomials
- factorisation
- derivatives and integrals
- conversions between various polynomial forms
- faster evaluation of a polynomial
- finding a polynomial if n points are given (degree of a polynomial is n-1)
- I am still thinking.

Generally speaking the library would become more advanced.

What do you think about this?
Please ask also if you have any questions.

Pawel Kieliszczyk
