gives the list of exponent vectors and coefficients for the monomials in poly with respect to the .
gives the result with the monomial ordering specified by order.
  • CoefficientRules works whether or not poly is explicitly given in expanded form.
  • Possible settings for order are the same as in MonomialList.
  • The default order is .
