## Polynomials

A POLYNOMobject is a special LISTobject.
This means, that you have
- a
*next* part, which is the next part
of the list, it must be NULL if we are at the end of the list,
or it is again a POLYNOMobject.
- There is also a
*self* part, which is VECTORobject, whose *i*th entry
is the exponent of the *i*th variable.
- Moreover, there is also a
*koeff* part, which is an arbitrary object.

For a POLYNOMobject it is necessary, that the
selfpart is a VECTORobject of INT EGERobjects.
