Is there a word for a monomial in only one variable? Let me explain: consider the homogenous polynomial
$x_1^5 + x_1^4 x_2 + \cdots + x_2^5$.
I there a term for the two terms at the ends? $x_1^5$ and $x_2^5$. I feel like the term should be "the homogenous monomials of the homogenous polynomial" but this sounds kinda funky.
