Description
The following is ok:
sage: var('x,y,z') sage: f=x*y*z^2 sage: f.coeff(z^2) x*y
However the following is not:
sage: f.coeff(x*y) 0

- Cc malb removed
- Component changed from commutative algebra to symbolics
- Keywords pynac added
- Owner changed from malb to burcin
I'm switching the component to symbolics since the problem involves symbolic expressions.
It seems that we inherited this behavior from GiNaC:

Type ?? for a list of help topics. > f = x*y*z^2; y*z^2*x > coeff(f, z^2,1); y*x > coeff(f, x*y,1); 0
I will report this to the ginac-list.

Since I don't know how to fix this, at least I can point out some related facts.
Maxima does exactly the same thing as GINAC (and Sage):
sage: !maxima ;;; Loading #P"/Users/wstein/sage/install/sage-5.0.beta2/local/lib/ecl/sb-bsd-sockets.fas" ;;; Loading #P"/Users/wstein/sage/install/sage-5.0.beta2/local/lib/ecl/sockets.fas" ;;; Loading #P"/Users/wstein/sage/install/sage-5.0.beta2/local/lib/ecl/defsystem.fas" ;;; Loading #P"/Users/wstein/sage/install/sage-5.0.beta2/local/lib/ecl/cmp.fas" Maxima 5.24.0 http://maxima.sourceforge.net using Lisp ECL 11.1.1 Distributed under the GNU Public License. See the file COPYING. Dedicated to the memory of William Schelter. The function bug_report() provides bug reporting information. (%i1) f : x*y*z; (%o1) x y z (%i2) coeff(f, x); (%o2) y z (%i3) coeff(f, x*y); (%o3) 0
Maple raises an error in this case:
> f := x*y*z > ; f := x y z > coeff(f, x); y z > coeff(f, x*y); Error, invalid input: coeff received x*y, which is not valid for its 2nd argument, x
Mathematica does what you expect:
In[1]:= f := x*y*z; In[2]:= Coefficient[f,x] Out[2]= y z In[3]:= Coefficient[f,x*y] Out[3]= z
Sage multivariate polynomials (hence Singular) do what you expect:
sage: R.<x,y,z>=QQ[] sage: f = x*y*z^2 sage: f.coefficient(x) y*z^2 sage: f.coefficient(x*y) z^2

a possible fix would be that f.coeff(x^n*y^m) automatically calls
f.coeff(x,n).coeff(y,m) which gives the expected answer:
sage: var('x,y,z') (x, y, z) sage: f=x*y*z^2 sage: f.coeff(x,1).coeff(y,1) z^2

comment:6 Changed 3 years ago by burcin
We might need to expand the expression before doing recursive calls to coefficient():
sage: var('x,y,z') (x, y, z) sage: g = x*y*(z^2 + y*z) sage: g.coeff(x,1).coeff(y,1) z
Compare to MMA:
In[12]:= Coefficient[x*y*(z^2 + y*z), x*y] 2 Out[12]= z

- Status changed from new to needs_review
attached is a temporary fix that calls coeff in turn for each term x^n in s.
In addition it checks the extra argument n is only used for a single symbol.

Patch applies cleanly, looks good, tests OK in symbolics/
Not sure if the stopgap is still necessary. My tests were satisfying but hey.

sorry with the change to git I don't know how yet how to submit a patch, thus I won't be able to work on this in the near future.
