I have two equations:
and I need to extract the coefficients of x0 and xp0 (to build a matrix; but that is not the issue). So I use coeffs:
While I can live with the first result (for X) (not that I like it), the fact that the 2nd one (for XP) has a completely different structure prevents any kind of algorithmic extraction of the coefficients (and the second one of course is 0) for further use. I tried the form of coeffs with a third argument (a name which gets the result assigned) but the same result. This example is a real case, obviously a trivial one and others will be much more involved so I really would like this to work. And yes, I did "collect" before using coeffs (not that it was needed here).
Any ideas out there?
