I have the useful command:


which will return the first exponent in (eta_2)^-4 (eta_4)^12 (eta_8)^-8; namely -4. Similarly


will return 12 etc. I want to extract the scaling factors though. That is, I want to print 2 or 4 or 8 in the expression (eta_2)^-4 (eta_4)^12 (eta_8)^-8 How??

Like this

sage: e = EtaGroup(8).basis()[0]                                                
sage: e                                                                         
Eta product of level 8 : (eta_2)^-4 (eta_4)^12 (eta_8)^-8
sage: e._rdict                                                                  
{2: -4, 4: 12, 8: -8}
