assume(x,'real')
plot(x^(1/3), -5, 5)
produces the following error:
verbose 0 (3630: plot.py, generate_plot_points) WARNING: When plotting, failed to evaluate function at 100 points.
verbose 0 (3630: plot.py, generate_plot_points) Last error message: 'negative number cannot be raised to a fractional power'
Shouldn't the assume command take care of this?
Thanks.
