Could you help me understand one sentence about polynomial?s

The sentence in question is the attachment below in big letters. Please explain to me, what kind of polynomials are members of this set P? For example, are polynomials x^3 + x/2 and x^3 + x^2 members of the set P?

For example, H(n)=n³+n² qualifies, but H(n)=n³+½n does not (e.g. try n=1).
