User documentation

Quasi-polynomials are useful for representing various combinatorial objects such as Hilbert/Ehrhart polynomials.

A quasi-polynomial is a list F_1,...,F_r of r univariate polynomials (all in the same variable). Its value at the integer N is defined to be F_k(r) where k = N mod r.

Constructors and pseudo-constructors


There are only two operations on a quasi-polynomial (apart from assignment and printing):

It could hardly be simpler!

Bugs, shortcomings and other ideas

Very simplistic first version. Assumes the constituents are univariate (but presumably the theory extends to multivariate?).

Printing is crude.
