pVariable -- Power-sum symmetric functions in a Symmetric ring


For a Symmetric ring R of dimension n, R.pVariable is a function which assigns to each index 1\leq i\leq n the i-th power-sum symmetric function. If i is outside the given bounds, an error is returned.

i1 : R = symmetricRing(QQ,4);
i2 : R.pVariable 2

o2 = p
