# coefficients

Noun

- plural form of
*coefficient*

- In pure algebra Descartes expounded and illustrated the general methods of solving equations up to those of the fourth degree (and believed that his method could go beyond), stated the law which connects the positive and negative roots of an equation with the changes of sign in the consecutive terms, and introduced the method of indeterminate
**coefficients**for the solution of equations.' - In general his object is to reduce the final equation to a simple one by making such an assumption for the side of the square or cube to which the expression in x is to be equal as will make the necessary number of
**coefficients**vanish. - It is found that the influence of different acids on this action is proportional to their specific
**coefficients**of affinity. - Hence, if we assume that, in the Daniell's cell, the temperature
**coefficients**are negligible at the individual contacts as well as in the cell as a whole, the sign of the potential-difference ought to be the same at the surface of the zinc as it is at the surface of the copper. - Other " Galois " groups were defined whose substitution
**coefficients**have fixed numerical values, and are particularly associated with the theory of equations.
