Show how to represent a multi-variate polynomial using generalized lists. Write a program to multiply two multi-variate polynomials.

Let A and B be two sparse matrices. Write an algorithm to obtain C= A * B. Can this multiplication be achieved in $O(\min \{ p r_A , n r_B \} )$steps where A is an $n \times m$ matrix with rA entries and B is an $m \times p$ matrix with rB entries.
