Figures 1-3 show data in both current and constant terms.
For simplicity, we only consider the computation overhead for generating a polynomial, restoring the constant term of a polynomial by using Lagrange interpolation, and computing the modular multiplicative inverse of L.
While there may be no directional derivatives from the constant term, we could also equivalently model this as orthogonal vectors with the sum of 0.
This can be explained by the fact that the even leading terms do not have a constant term but only sinusoidal functions which converge faster than the constant term.
