Here is what I am trying to do in the Notebook of Sage 5.7: I enter exactly the following lines from the tutorial for visualizing root systems
sage: L = RootSystem(["A",2]).ambient_space()
sage: L.plot()
The output I get is a traceback ending in 'unsupported operand parent(s) for '*': Full matrix Space of 2 by 2 dense matrices over real field with 53 bits of precision and vector space of dimension 3 over rational field'
I do not understand what I am doing wrong and what this message means. I am a newcomer to sage and all I want is to print a root system with some weights added for illustration purposes. I would appreciate any pointers.guestTue, 06 Jan 2015 22:45:41 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/25415/
