Hi,

Not sure If this thread is in the right part of the forum.

Anyway, quite simply if one has a polynomial as below,

Can the coefficents of an arbitrary polynomial be notated as a series or set?

$\displaystyle (x+1)(x^4 + 2x^3 + 2x^2 + 2x + 1) \:=\:x^5 + 3x^4 + 4x^3 + 4x^2 + 3x + 1$

i.e. from this example i would need...

$\displaystyle s = [1, 3, 4, 4, 3, 1]$

If so how?

Thanks Alex
