11764,define the class MPolynomial at the top-level,zimmerma,malb,"for univariate polynomials we have the class {{{Polynomial}}}:
{{{
sage: R. = QQ[]
sage: isinstance(x+1, Polynomial)
True
}}}
However for multivariate polynomials we have to write:
{{{
sage: R. = QQ[]
sage: isinstance(x+y, sage.rings.polynomial.multi_polynomial.MPolynomial)
True
}}}
I suggest {{{MPolynomial}}} is defined as an alias for
{{{sage.rings.polynomial.multi_polynomial.MPolynomial}}} so that we can simply write:
{{{
sage: R. = QQ[]
sage: isinstance(x+y, MPolynomial)
True
}}}",enhancement,new,trivial,sage-6.4,commutative algebra,,,mmezzarobba,,,,N/A,,,,,
