HI just a remark

it is a pity to have removed the possible use of the Greek letter lambda for variable name because lambda is a reserved name. I would have preferred the lambda function named lambdaf .

This is a Python reserved keyword, not a Sage decision, so we can not do much about that. Perhaps could you use Lambda instead ? If you use Sage compiled with Python 3, you can also use λ as a variable name.

You can also use lambda_ as a variable name, whose latex expression will be indistinguishable from $\lambda$.
