Re: Polynomial to List


It is very easy.
See below

In[26]:=
o = 1 + x + x^2 + x^3 + x^4
Out[26]=
1 + x + x^2 + x^3 + x^4

1)

In[28]:=
Reverse[List @@ o]
Out[28]=
{x^4, x^3, x^2, x, 1}

2)

In[36]:=
Cases[o, x^(n_.) | (x_Integer)]//Reverse
Out[36]=
{x^4, x^3, x^2, x, 1}

3)

In[39]:=
Reverse[o /. (x_) + (y___) -> {x, y}]
Out[39]=
{x^4, x^3, x^2, x, 1}
