# latex form of product of non-commuting variables

the result of

```
K.< alpha,b > = FreeAlgebra(SR)
latex(alpha*b)
```

is

```
\alphab
```

without a space between `\alpha`

and `b`

.

Is it a bug?

Yuck, this needs work. I couldn't even find a good workaround. You can try using `repr_lincomb` some to see what you get, but I wasn't able to get this to work as we would desire. See http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/14509
