**Monomial** — In mathematics, in the context of polynomials, the word monomial can have one of two different meanings: The first is a product of powers of variables, or formally any value obtained by finitely many multiplications of a variable. If only a… … Wikipedia

**Monomial order** — In mathematics, a monomial order is a total order on the set of all (monic) monomials in a given polynomial ring, satisfying the following two properties: If u < v and w is any other monomial, then uw<vw. In other words, the ordering… … Wikipedia

**Monomial representation** — In mathematics, a linear representation ρ of a group G is a monomial representation if there is a finite index subgroup H and a one dimensional linear representation σ of H, such that ρ is equivalent to the induced representation IndHGσ.… … Wikipedia

**Monomial basis** — In mathematics a monomial basis is a way to describe uniquely a polynomial using a linear combination of monomials. This description, the monomial form of a polynomial, is often used because of the simple structure of the monomial basis.… … Wikipedia

**Monomial group** — In mathematics, in the area of algebra studying the character theory of finite groups, an M group or monomial group is a finite group whose complex irreducible characters are all monomial, that is, induced from characters of degree 1 (Isaacs… … Wikipedia

**Monomial conjecture** — In commutative algebra, a subfield of mathematics, the monomial conjecture of Melvin Hochster says the following:[1] Let A be a Noetherian local ring of Krull dimension d and let x1, ..., xd be a system of parameters for A (so that… … Wikipedia

**Degree (mathematics)** — This article is about the term degree as used in mathematics. For alternative meanings, see Degree (disambiguation). In mathematics, there are several meanings of degree depending on the subject. Contents 1 Unit of angle 2 Degree of a monomial 3… … Wikipedia

**Rationalisation (mathematics)** — In elementary algebra root rationalisation is a process by surds in the denominator of a fraction are eliminated. These surds may be monomials or binomials involving square roots, in simple examples. There are wide extensions to the technique.… … Wikipedia

**Fraction (mathematics)** — A cake with one quarter removed. The remaining three quarters are shown. Dotted lines indicate where the cake may be cut in order to divide it into equal parts. Each quarter of the cake is denoted by the fraction 1/4. A fraction (from Latin:… … Wikipedia
