I want to construct a matrix whose entries are members are rational polynomials in these variables and perform computations with this matrix (ultimately diagonalize it and obtain a general formula for its $n$-th power). But I want to do this computation symbolically, treating the three variables as transcendental elements adjoined to $\mathbb Q$. How an I do this?JackMThu, 12 Mar 2020 14:24:18 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/50223/
