I am trying to divide one polynomial into another, each of which has three variables, to get a series of terms. For example, X^2 * Y^3 * W/(1-2*X*Y*W) = X^2*Y^3*W + 2*X^3*Y^4*W^2 + 4*X^4*Y^5*W^3 + ... The above result will be an infinite series of terms, but I would like mathmatica to give me the first N terms. Mathmatica doesn't seem to be able to handle more than one variable when dividing polynomials, nor does it seem to be able to do the above manner of division. If anyone can tell me how to do this on Mathmatica it would be greatly appreciated. Peter M.
