PolyMap

Map coordinates using polynomial functions

Description:

A PolyMap is a form of Mapping which performs a general polynomial transformation. Each output coordinate is a polynomial function of all the input coordinates. The coefficients are specified separately for each output coordinate. The forward and inverse transformations are defined independantly by separate sets of coefficients. If no inverse transformation is supplied, the default behaviour is to use an iterative method to evaluate the inverse based only on the forward transformation (see attribute IterInverse).
