I'm considering giving Sage a spin. Having the scripting possibilities that python offers at one's disposal seems very appealing.
But I would first like to know if - short of writing the module I need in python - Sage is currently capable of addressing the kind of problems I am interested in.
I mainly work with infinite dimensional Lie algebras such as the [Virasoro algebra](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virasoro_algebra). Is there an easy way to implement such algebras in Sage, by specifying structure constants or something like that?GonnemanMon, 08 Aug 2011 07:32:34 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8264/
