For example, consider `v = vector([1, 2, 3])`. In sagetex, the command `$v=\sage{v}$` renders as
$$
v=(1, 2, 3)
$$
Instead, I want my vectors to take the form
$$
v=\left[\begin{array}{rrr}1&2&3\end{array}\right]^\intercal
$$
I thought I could do this by resetting the `_latex_` method of the `sage.modules.free_module_element.FreeModuleElement` class as follows.
def my_vector_latex(self):
return matrix(v)._latex_() + r'^\intercal'
setattr(sage.modules.free_module_element.FreeModuleElement, '_latex_', my_vector_latex)
However, this code throws the following error:
TypeError: can't set attributes of built-in/extension type 'sage.modules.free_module_element.FreeModuleElement'
So, it looks like I can't modify the methods of `FreeModuleElement` in this way. Is there anything else I could do?more_weightTue, 13 Oct 2020 12:37:51 -0500https://ask.sagemath.org/question/53892/
