Hipow

Function: hipow (<expr>, <x>) Returns the highest explicit exponent of <x> in <expr>. <x> may be a variable or a general expression. If <x> does not appear in <expr>, hipow returns 0.

hipow does not consider expressions equivalent to expr. In particular, hipow does not expand expr, so hipow (<expr>, <x>) and hipow (expand (<expr>, <x>)) may yield different results.

Examples:

          (%i1) hipow (y^3 * x^2 + x * y^4, x);
          (%o1)                           2
          (%i2) hipow ((x + y)^5, x);
          (%o2)                           1
          (%i3) hipow (expand ((x + y)^5), x);
          (%o3)                           5
          (%i4) hipow ((x + y)^5, x + y);
          (%o4)                           5
          (%i5) hipow (expand ((x + y)^5), x + y);
          (%o5)                           0

(%o1)                                true
(%i2)
