156) and set k = 0, we obtain an−1 = 0. 157) After repeatedly differencing and evaluating the resulting expressions at k = 0, we conclude that each coefficient must be zero. A factorial polynomial is unique. 159) and b i = ai , i = 0, 1, . . , n. 158) to obtain b−m k (n+m) + · · · + b−1 k (n+1) + (b0 − a0 )k (n) + · · · + (bn − an ) = 0. 160) must hold. Thus, a factorial polynomial has a unique set of coefficients. Let Pk be a function of k. 163) i=1 (0) Pk is defined to be one. Since the factorial functions have such nice properties under differencing, it is often useful to convert an ordinary polynomial to a factorial polynomial.

79) we can rewrite the result of the above theorem to read n (−1)i ∆n yk = i=0 n yk+n−i . 80) We now consider functions of the operator ∆. 81) where a0 , a1 , . . , am are constants. The operator function, f (∆), is defined as follows: f (∆)yk = (a0 ∆m + a1 ∆m−1 + · · · + am )yk = a0 ∆m yk + a1 ∆m−1 yk + · · · + am yk . 82) Let α1 , α2 , β1 , and β2 be constants; therefore, (α1 + β1 ∆)(α2 + β2 ∆)yk = α1 (α2 + β2 ∆)yk + β1 ∆(α2 + β2 ∆)yk = α1 α2 yk + α1 β2 ∆yk + β1 α2 ∆yk + β1 β2 ∆2 yk = α1 α2 yk + (α1 β2 + α2 β1 )∆yk + β1 β2 ∆2 yk .

An are constants. Differencing fk n times gives ∆fk = a1 + 2a2 k (1) + 3a3 k (2) + · · · + nan k (n−1) , ∆2 fk = 2 · 1 · a2 + 3 · 2 · a3 k (1) + · · · + n(n − 1)an k (n−2) , .. .. . ∆n fk = an n(n − 1) · · · (1). 188) THE DIFFERENCE CALCULUS 25 Setting k = 0 in the original function and its differences allows us to conclude that ∆m f0 am = , m = 0, 1, . . , n. 189) m! To illustrate the use of this theorem, consider the function fk = k 4 . 191) ∆3 fk = 24k + 36, ∆4 fk = 24, and f0 = 0, ∆f0 = 1, ∆2 f0 = 14, ∆3 f0 = 36, ∆4 f0 = 24.
