Synthetic Division and Matrix Factorization
Barabe, Samuel; Dubeau, Franc
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v38 n8 p1051-1064 Dec 2007
Synthetic division is viewed as a change of basis for polynomials written under the Newton form. Then, the transition matrices obtained from a sequence of changes of basis are used to factorize the inverse of a bidiagonal matrix or a block bidiagonal matrix.
