Re: Shortening Polynomials


Two more solutions to the shortening problem

t1 = a0 + a1 q + a2 q^2 ;
Expand[%^4] /. {q^3->0,q^4->0,q^5->0,q^6->0,q^7->0,q^8->0};

Is there a neater way to collect powers up to order m after
expanding a polynomial?

======
 (t1^4//ExpandAll)/.q^n_->(If[n>2,0,q^n]) 

       

 (t1^4//ExpandAll)/.{  q^n_ /;n >2 ->0  }
