I am looking for the documentation (i.e., the source code) of invariant_degree() in the Weyl Character Rings module. I have looked through that website pretty extensively, but I think I am looking in the wrong place?

To access the source code you can do

sage: my_object??

In your case

sage: R = WeylCharacterRing(['A',2], prefix="R")
sage: x = R.an_element()
sage: x.invariant_degree??

Note: `x.invariant_degree??` also tells you the path to the file in which the source code is, so you can open that file in your favourite text editor to read it more comfortably and to have a look at the surrounding code.
