Description
Consider:
sage: R.<x> = QQ[] sage: S.<u,v> = QQ[] sage: f = 2*x sage: g = 2*u sage: f.is_monomial() True sage: g.is_monomial() False
According to Wikipedia, there are two conventions on the matter, and we should support both. I propose that we accept neither f
nor g
as monomials, and add the method is_term
:
sage: f.is_monomial() False sage: g.is_monomial() False sage: f.is_term() True sage: g.is_term() True

This dup surely wouldn't happen if we were sitting right next to each other (which we are)! :-)
