```

Use the 'polynom' library:

> p <- as.polynomial(c(1,1,1))
> p
1 + x + x^2
> p^3
1 + 3*x + 6*x^2 + 7*x^3 + 6*x^4 + 3*x^5 + x^6
> unclass(p^3)
[1] 1 3 6 7 6 3 1

Hi,

I would like to get the coefficients of x^0, x^1, x^2,  . , x^6 from
expansion of (1+x+x^2)^3.

The result should be 1, 3, 6, 7, 6, 3, 1;

How can I calculate in R?

You help will be greatly appreciated.

Peter
