definition 
mekso atmost3ary operator: convert to polynomial; X_{1} (ordered list of algebraic structure (probably field) elements) forms the (ordered list of) coefficients of a polynomial/Laurentlike series with respect to indeterminate X_{2} under ordering rule X_{3} (default for finite list: the first entry is the coefficient of the highestdegree term and each subsequent entry is the next lesserdegree coefficient via counting by ones and wherein the last entry is the constant term)

notes 
In English, there is no good way to distinguish between x^{2} + 2x as a function and as a number; typical notation would demand that it is a number but abuse must be adopted since no easy alternative exists for its expression as a function (such as when it is being defined; mapping notation is one of the best options, but is cumbersome). Lojban now allows for such functionality: just apply this word to the ordered list (1,2,0) and do not fill the second terbri (X_{2}: the indeterminate). This word can also be viewed as creating an object in a ring. Termination of the list is extremely important; under normal interpretations, list entries can themselves have operations applied internally; moreover, multiple indetermimates can be introduced by careful application of this word to a list wherein each entry is itself treated as a polynomial. The last entry in X_{1} must be 'constant' term (when understood as a function), so care must be taken to explicitly mention an appropriate number of zeroes. See also: cpolinomi'a.
