Coefficient

FilledSmallSquare Coefficient[expr, form] gives the coefficient of form in the polynomial expr.

FilledSmallSquare Coefficient[expr, form, n] gives the coefficient of form^n in expr.

FilledSmallSquare Coefficient picks only terms that contain the particular form specified. is not considered part of .

FilledSmallSquare form can be a product of powers.

FilledSmallSquare Coefficient[expr, form, 0] picks out terms that are not proportional to form.

FilledSmallSquare Coefficient works whether or not expr is explicitly given in expanded form.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 1.4.7 and Section 3.3.2.
