Is there a function which explicitly reverts this?

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/40820/what-is-the-opposite-of-log_expand/?answer=40826#post-id-40826Yes, `log_simplify`:
sage: e = log(x*y) ; e
log(x*y)
sage: f = e.log_expand() ; f
log(x) + log(y)
sage: f.log_simplify()
log(x*y)
Note that given an sage object `e`, you can see all methods that can be applied to it, by typing `e.<TAB_BUTTON>`, and the methods that start with `blah` by typing `e.blah<TAB_BUTTON>`, in particular, you could discover both methods by typing:
sage: e.log<TAB_BUTTON>
