...a remainder within two years of its being published or reprinted. Even then, many publishers still disdained to remainder unsold stock, preferring to sell it off for pulping and recycling; they regarded remaindering as an admission of imprudence, if not incompetence, and as demeaning to the author (who was very occasionally allowed to buy up the remainder of his book to give away as presents). The antiquarian bookseller H. *Bohn was notably successful in persuading the publishers of illustrated and other expensive works to let him handle their remainders....

...remainder n. An interest in land that comes into effect in possession only when a prior interest ends. For example if A settles land on B for life then on C in fee simple, C’s interest is in remainder until B dies. All interests in remainder are necessarily equitable ( see fee simple absolute in possession ). A settlement may create several successive remainders; for example, a settlement on A for life, remainder to B for life, remainder to C in tail, remainder to D in fee simple. B, C, and D are called remaindermen . There can be no remainder after a...

... theorem The following result about polynomials: Theorem If a polynomial f ( x ) is divided by x − h , then the remainder is equal to f ( h ). It is proved as follows. Divide the polynomial f ( x ) by x − h to get a quotient q ( x ) and a remainder which will be a constant, r . This means that f ( x )=( x − h ) q ( x )+ r . Replacing x by h in this equation gives r = f ( h ), thus proving the theorem. An important consequence of the remainder theorem is the Factor Theorem...
