Polynomial& operator+= (const Term& T)
Terms [T. Monomial] += T. Coefficient;
In the previous chapter, I talked about a notational device for matrix algebra called tensor diagrams. This time I'm going to get real and write some C++ code to evaluate these quantities symbolically. This gives me a chance to play with some as yet untried (by me) features in the C++ Standard Library, like strings and STL container classes. For more on STL, check out my favorite book on the subject: The C++ Standard Library by Nicolai M. Josuttis (Addison Wesley, 1999). I am trying to figure out if I like these new-fangled programming tools by seeing ...
