Does anyone know if it possible to generate elementary symmetric polynomials in Maple (I am using version 12), and if so, how?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have scoured all the help files, and indeed the whole internet, but the only thing I have found is a reference to a command "symmpoly", which was apparently included in earlier versions, but does not seem to be available now.

Why would they delete this capability? Surely there must be a way to do this...any help much appreciated!
