# Personalized Polynomials

A Personalized Polynomial is a polynomial whose values f(0), f(1), f(2), and so on, is the index of the letters in your names.
For example, in the word STEPHEN,

- f(0)=19 where S is the 19th letter in the alphabet
- f(1)=20 where T is the 20th letter in the alphabet
- f(2)=5 where E is the 5th letter in the alphabet
- and so on up to
- f(6)=14 where N is the 14th letter in the alphabet

Thanks to James Tanton for this idea.
