Oops, forgot to divide by factorials in those last ones. Those should
be:
myCoefficient[ee_, vars__] := Module[
{len, vlist={vars}, res=ee},
Do[
res = D[res, vlist[[j]]] / vlist[[j,2]]! /. vlist[[j,1]]->0,
{j,Length[vlist]}
];
res
]
myCoefficient2[ee_, vars__] :=
Fold[(D[#1,#2]/#2[[2]]! /. #2[[1]]->0)&, f, {vars}]
