linear: A simple free algebra object

linearR Documentation

A simple free algebra object

Description

Create simple free algebra objects including linear expressions, for example

> linear(1:3)
free algebra element algebraically equal to
+ 1*a + 2*b + 3*c
> linear(1:3,power=5)
free algebra element algebraically equal to
+ 1*aaaaa + 2*bbbbb + 3*ccccc
>

Usage

linear(x,power=1)

Arguments

x

Numeric vector of terms

power

Integer vector of powers

Note

Many of the functions documented at mvp::special.Rd do not make sense in the context of the free algebra. Function mvp::product(), for example, imposes an order on the expansion.

Function constant() is documented at constant.Rd, but is listed below for convenience.
