2.9.4 Indeterminates
An indeterminate is represented by an identifier followed by one or more integer indices. For example, x , alpha[1] , x[1,2,3] are legal (and different) indeterminates, as is x[i, 2*i+1] if i is of type INT .

When creating a ring the indeterminates are listed separate by commas.
