    I'm not sure I understand... What basis ?

    You mean you have a basis (1, t, t˛, ...) ?

    You need to specify what space you want, and what basis you are refering to. There is a space of polynomials, and basis in which this is a basis vector.

    In summary, be more preccise or provide more context.
