CTAN Update: polexpr
There are two main changes: - polynomials are also made known as functions to the \xintfloatexpr parser. This is indispensible for numerical algorithms (such as finding roots by Newton's method or Regula Falsi) as exact computations quickly give very big fractions. - there was a breaking change for \PolToExpr. It now outputs in descending powers; use \PolToExpr* for ascending powers. See README.md for more. The documentation (in polexpr.html) was extended and fully revised.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/polexpr (although, at the moment, the data displayed on this page are not up to date due to a bug of the website. Sorry for the inconvenience!)) The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/polexpr/
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

polexpr – A parser for polynomial expressions
The package provides \poldef: a parser for polynomial expressions based upon the \xintdeffunc mechanism of the package xintexpr.
The parsed expressions use the operations of algebra (inclusive of composition of functions) with standard operators, fractional numbers (possibly in scientific notation) and previously defined polynomial functions or other constructs as recognized by the \xintexpr numerical parser.
The polynomials are then not only genuine \xintexpr numerical functions but additionally are also known to the package via their coefficients. This allows dedicated macros to implement polynomial algorithmics.
