Definition of Quantic

1. Noun. A homogeneous polynomial having at least two variables.

Generic synonyms: Homogeneous Polynomial



Definition of Quantic

1. n. A homogeneous algebraic function of two or more variables, in general containing only positive integral powers of the variables, and called quadric, cubic, quartic, etc., according as it is of the second, third, fourth, fifth, or a higher degree. These are further called binary, ternary, quaternary, etc., according as they contain two, three, four, or more variables; thus, the quantic &?; is a binary cubic.
