Vander(V) = Vandermonde's matrix from vector V


Vander(V) = Vandermonde's matrix from vector V:

Let V be a row or column vector with elements v1, v2, v3, ..., vn. Vandermonde's matrix of V is

{1, v1, v1^2, ..., v1^(n-1);
1, v2, v2^2, ..., v2^(n-1);
...
1, vn, vn^2, ..., vn^(n-1)}

It is nonsingular if vi != vj for all i and j <= n.
