Have a look at JuliaBox. They have a forum where you can ask for an invite code (and, hopefully, soon you won't need one).

This works, thank you!

Thank you very much, don't know how long I'd be looking for it without your help. However, I have to do `list((x*y^3).factor())`. For some reason, `(x*y^3).factor_list()` gives an error ('sage.rings.polynomial.multi_polynomial_libsingular.MPolynomial_libsingu\ lar' object has no attribute 'factor_list').

Not offended at all! I didn't know about this myself until now.

This works:

sage: (x*y^3).factor_list()
[(x, 1), (y, 3)]
sage: mul([x, y, y, y])
x*y^3

And, if you want to go from the factor list to the expression:

sage: a = (x*y^3).factor_list()
sage: mul(t^m for t, m in a)
x*y^3

Hope this helps!

2012-06-10 04:46:35 -0600 asked a question How do I iterate through factors of a monomial?

I am (very naively) trying to implement a certain non-linear map of polynomial rings. I can get the monomials in a polynomial by simply iterating through a polynomial:

>>> R.<x,y,z>=QQ[]
>>> list(x*y^3 + 2*x*y)
[(1, x*y^3), (2, x*y)]

How do I now iterate through the factors of each monomial, i.e. convert x*y^3 into something like [(x, 1), (y, 3)] or even just [x, y, y, y]?

Also, what is the correct way to do the opposite conversion, i.e. [x, y, y, y] to x*y^3?

I hope you won't be offended by such newbie questions. I couldn't find this in any of the tutorials easily (did I miss the right one?) Thank you!
