toDividedPowers -- Translates to divided power monomial basis from ordinary monomial basis



If f is a polynomial, or a matrix of polynomials, then f1 is the corresponding object written in the divided power monomial basis, where for example $x^2$ denotes $x^{(2)}$

i1 : S = ZZ/101[x,y]

o1 = S

o1 : PolynomialRing
i2 : 2*x^2 == toDividedPowers (x^2)

o2 = true
