f(x) = x + x^2
view( integral(f(x),x, hold=True) ) #displays the form of the derivative
But i can't figure out how to do it for a derivative:
f(x) = x + x^2
view( derivative(f(x),x, hold=True) ) #fails
view( derivative(f(x),x) ) # takes derivative then displays answer instead of the problem
Is their any easy way to do this? If not, whats the recommended way to fake it (inline latex etc)?Fri, 02 Oct 2015 03:17:12 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/29671/how-do-i-display-a-derivative-using-view/Answer by tmonteil for <p>I can currently display the form of an integral in latex using:</p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/29671/how-do-i-display-a-derivative-using-view/?answer=29673#post-id-29673As you can see, the problem is not about viewing the formula in LaTeX/pdf, but about telling Sage not to compute the derivative. Indeed , it seems that the `derivative` method does not support a `hold` argument (yet).
sage: f(x) = x + x^2
sage: derivative(f(x),x)
2*x + 1
sage: derivative(f(x),x, hold=True)
TypeError: derivative() got an unexpected keyword argument 'hold'
