Problem 43642. Euclidean distance from a point to a polynomial
John, I just tried your file exchange solution out of pure curiosity. Your guess is correct; it does score poorly. I also got the error "You may not use the command(s) builtin in your code" for the test cases. All I did was change only the first line to call the function and the variable names with no other checking. I'll do some real work on it now. :-)
Will not solution like this be sooo much slower than simple loops?! Short yes, efficient no.
well, I think I was wrong...This solution is slower if the degree of the polynomial is small but much faster if the degree gets higher...solving polynomials of high degree is really slow with ROOTS.
