I created a polynomial ring object:


and now I wonder how should I create a polynomial from a list of coefficients: assume that I have something like [{x: 5, y: 4}, {x: 2, y: 0}]. How to transform it to "x^5 y^4 + x^2"?

Here is a way:

sage: R.<x,y>=QQbar[]
sage: R({(1,1):2})

sage: R({(1,1):2,(3,4):77})
77*x^3*y^4 + 2*x*y

I see, thanks! It would be nice if it was made clear in documentation.
