Description
At the moment the ex1.coefficients(ex2)
method uses pexpect-Maxima to get a coefficient list of a symbolic expression ex1
when seen as a polynomial in ex2
but the list is wrong whenever the exponent of ex2
is nonnumeric:
sage: var('a, x') (a, x) sage: f = a*x - x^x sage: f.coefficient(x^x) -1 sage: f.coefficients(x) [[-x^x, 0], [a, 1]]
It should not be difficult to rewrite coefficients
using wildcard power search and the coefficient
method (which doesn't use Maxima).

This is fixed in current Pynac master.

TracTickets for help on using
tickets.
For implementation reasons the rewrite happened in #21034 but the behaviour was not changed so this ticket still has to be addressed.
