Hello, I'd like to know I can retrieve the list of variables that appear in $g$ in the following example.

A.<x,y> = InfinitePolynomialRing(QQ)

Thanks in advance!

In SageMath 9.0:

sage: A.<x,y> = InfinitePolynomialRing(QQ)
sage: g=x[0]+x[1]+y[0]
sage: g.variables()
(x_1, x_0, y_0)

Thanks. Do you know how I can get a list like [0,1] for x and [0] for y?

@mcmug That's tricky. I don't see a clean way to do it right now. You can do it by converting to/from a string though.
