Half of your question is easier to answer. I bet if you do


you won't get the theta |--> bit. That is because you are defining a function, not just an expression, in your example.

For substituting more advanced expressions, you will probably have to use wildcards. Note that

sage: y.subs_expr(cos(theta)^2==x)

works; it's the fact that your expression isn't just one thing, but a product, that probably messes things up.

sage: y.subs({cos(theta)^2*sin(theta)^2*w0:x*w0})

but keep in mind that for your more complex expression you may need to have a more complicated use of wildcards. Good luck!
