I have the following

R.<a> = InfinitePolynomialRing(QQ)
b = a[3]    # 3 or any arbitrary non-negative integer

Is there a function that takes b as the input and gives the 3 back?

This seems to work :

sage: R1.<a>=InfinitePolynomialRing(QQ)
sage: reset()
sage: R1.<a>=InfinitePolynomialRing(QQ)
sage: b=a[3]
sage: R1.varname_key(str(b))[1]

See R1.varname_key? for further enlightment... ;-)

Thanks! Do you know how I can get the degree back, for example: p = a[1]*a[2]^2, but[1]) doesn't work.

OK, I found it, it's[1].variable()).
