Hi, I have the following function: e^(f1+f2r+f3r^2+f4r^3+f5r^4+f6r^5) I am wondering what the proper name for it is (as I am giving a presentation in a few days)... [is it as simple as 'a fifth order exponential'?] Thanks

I doubt there is any accepted name for this. But you should use the word "degree" rather than "order" for the polynomial.
