A possibility is to transform each element as a fraction and look at the coefficients of the numerator. The main issue is about the leading `0`

which is not an element of the symbolic ring, and whose list of coefficients is empty. So here is a way (the fill function transforms `[]`

into `[0]`

):

```
sage: L = [0, -15*x1^3/x0^7 + 10*x1*x2/x0^6 - x3/x0^5, 15*x1^2/x0^6 - 4*x2/x0^5, -6*x1/x0^5, x0^(-4)]
sage: fill = lambda x : [0] if not x else x
sage: [fill(SR(p).fraction(ZZ).numerator().coefficients()) for p in L]
[[0], [-15, 10, -1], [15, -4], [-6], [1]]
```

A possibility is to transform each element as a fraction and look at the coefficients of the numerator. The main issue is about the leading `0`

which is not an element of the symbolic ring, and whose list of coefficients is empty. So here is a way (the ~~fill ~~`fill`

function transforms `[]`

into `[0]`

```
sage: L = [0, -15*x1^3/x0^7 + 10*x1*x2/x0^6 - x3/x0^5, 15*x1^2/x0^6 - 4*x2/x0^5, -6*x1/x0^5, x0^(-4)]

sage: [fill(SR(p).fraction(ZZ).numerator().coefficients()) for p in L]
[[0], [-15, 10, -1], [15, -4], [-6], [1]]
