Is there an easy way to display these as ordinary differential equations?
thx

A quick and dirty workaround would be to replace your original code:
x = var('x')
y = function('y')(x)
DEQ = diff(y,x) + y - 1 == 0
sol = desolve(DEQ, y)
show(DEQ)
print(latex(DEQ))
by something along the lines of:
sage: x = SR.var('x')
sage: y = function('y')(x)
sage: de = diff(y, x) + y - 1 == 0
sage: de
y(x) + diff(y(x), x) - 1 == 0
sage: y1 = function("y'")(x)
sage: de_pretty = de.substitute({diff(y, x): y1})
sage: de_pretty
y(x) + y'(x) - 1 == 0
and running `show` or `view` or `latex` on `de_pretty` rather than `de`.
One could write a function to prettify differential equations,
by parsing the expression tree of the differential equation,
and substituting derivatives by aptly named replacement functions.
One would then run `desolve` on the original differential equation,
and use the prettified equation for showing, viewing, latexing.
Or maybe it would be easier to work the other way! Start by defining
the pretty differential equation, and substitute an actual differential
equation for solving.Wed, 21 Mar 2018 08:27:07 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/41644/quick-latex-question/?answer=41679#post-id-41679
