If I may geek out here for a moment — mathgeek out, that is — the expense of doing f/x should rise polynomially — quadratically, in fact — with the (linear) size of the negative.

If you look at the CO2 forcing above it looks pretty linear, but how about the total radiative forcing, because, our new hero's are claiming that.......greenhouse gas forcing, global temperature and solar irradiance are not polynomially cointegrated and AGW is refuted.

He also stressed that although one could in principle ˜squeeze™ information of exponential complexity into polynomially many quantum states, the real problem lay in the efficient retrieval of this information.

(If a Hamiltonian is a sum of polynomially many local terms, then certainly one can simulate it efficiently on a quantum computer — see here for some pointers to the literature.)

The one universal rule is that the amount of stock an employee gets decreases polynomially with the age of the company.

We observe that a simple formulation gives rise to systems at least as strong as Frege  yielding a semantic way to define a CookReckhow (i.e., polynomially verifiable) algebraic analogue of Frege proofs, different from that given in [BIKPRS96, GH03].

But Plancherel's theorem shows that there can only be polynomially many such large Fourier coefficients, so by the pigeonhole principle, is equal to a constant for a polynomially dense set of x, and the claim follows.
