```I'm trying to do the following:
First of all, I have this polynome Psid[[n]]= (-1)^n Psip[[n]] + ksi Sum[M[[n',n]] . Psip[[n']], {n',0,CN}] + 0(ksiÂ²). I need to get the matrix M.

I put:

CN=3;
Psip={1,0,0};
Psid={1.0000000000000000000 - 0.9443595442280599 ksi, 0.6356361712260359 ksi, 0.06956731675750103 ksi};
M = CoefficientList[Psid, ksi].

But it doesn't resolve me the problem :-(

What to do please to find the M matrix.

Cheers.
Lian.
