I replied to Bernadette privately before seeing this. \* is a standard TeX macro that denotes an implicit multiplication and serves as an hyphenation. It is either ignored or expanded to × when line breaking occurs. Any reasonnable (La)TeX processor will handle it, and this improves the display when very large polynomial are printed. Cheers, Bill.
