Check out the Brilliant wiki - Newton's Identities, which is in the Vieta formula chapter in algebra.

Sir, I did go through to the wiki but it went over my head. Can someone please explain it in an easier fashion?Log in to reply

Have you tried the Brilliant wiki on it ? – Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 2 months ago

Yeah.. I didn't learn much. The wiki must be good though it went over my head.Log in to reply

– Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 2 months ago

Then try the AoPS wiki on Newton's Sums . I had learnt it from there since when I had learnt it , the wiki on Brilliant wasn't filled out . Or you can always download some pdfs on the topic . Now that always works (for me atleast!)Log in to reply

– Mehul Arora · 2 years, 2 months ago

Can you give me some links (apart from AoPS)Log in to reply

– Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 2 months ago

Hmm ,strange . I couldn't find any good pdf for this topic . But try it out yourself and if you have any doubt in it , ask here and I'll only be glad to help you out :)Log in to reply

Do you have Hall and Knight ? If so , please check pg 468 .Log in to reply

– Mehul Arora · 2 years, 2 months ago

Nope.. Which class is it aimed at?Log in to reply

– Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 2 months ago

It's just a ref. book for Algebra .Log in to reply

@Prasun Biswas @Calvin Lin @Rajdeep Dhingra @Azhaghu Roopesh M Please help.. :/ – Mehul Arora · 2 years, 2 months ago

Also, I'd recommend the Wikipedia article on Newton's Identities. I learnt it from there. :D

There are two points to note when learning Newton's Identities. It is a method that helps you to form a recurrence for power sums of roots, so it'd be better if you have a good understanding of recurrence relations. Also, applications of Newton's Identities mostly use Vieta's formulas because you need to find the elementary symmetric polynomials first before calculating the power sums. If you get confused with "too many formulas" there, just remember the concise form stated in the Brilliant wiki under the section "General Form". – Prasun Biswas · 2 years, 2 months ago
