## Study Notes

### Horner Scheme Overview

• The Horner scheme is a method for efficient polynomial evaluation.
• It reduces the number of multiplications and additions needed compared to traditional methods.

### Purpose of the Algorithm

• The algorithm rewrites polynomials in a nested form to minimize computational steps.
• It allows for rapid evaluation, especially useful in numerical computations.

• The primary advantage is the reduction of computational complexity, making it faster and more efficient.
• It minimizes rounding errors in floating-point arithmetic by using fewer operations.

### Nested Multiplication

• In the Horner scheme, nested multiplication reorganizes polynomial terms to facilitate sequential calculations.
• This approach implies evaluating the polynomial from the highest degree to the lowest.

### Applications

• Commonly used in computer science for evaluating polynomials in numerical algorithms.
• Essential in graphics, scientific computing, and anywhere polynomial functions are utilized.

### Polish Language Insights

• "Celem algorytmu Hornera" translates to "the purpose of the Horner algorithm."
• "Horner scheme" refers to a systematic method for evaluating polynomials effectively.
• A key advantage ("główną zaletą użycia algorytmu Hornera") is its efficiency in computation.
