Why do I get the "unable to find a common ring for all elements" error message?

I was wondering if you can take a look at this cell:

http://sagecell.sagemath.org/?q=ypqhgw

and let me know why I get the error message.

Thanks

The variables in the MILP are not symbolic variables, i.e., not from the Symbolic Ring. The vector() command is failing in that step.

type(x)
<type 'sage.numerical.linear_functions.LinearFunction'>

You can rewrite your constraints like this

p.add_constraint(sum(_a*_x for _a,_x in zip(a1, [x,y])) + r*a1.norm(2) <= b1)

Basically, you are reimplementing the dot product. That seems like a "bad thing". Obviously linear algebra and linear programming should play well together - can this actually be done?
