Hello all,

I would like to have sagetex producing matrices with the columns centered. If was writing this by hand, I would do \begin{bmatrix*}[c] ... \end{bmatrix*}

From my XXX.sout file, I see the result \begin{array}{rrr} ... \end{array}. Is there a way to control this? Either playing at the sage level directly or by controlling sagetex?

Thanks!

Sage allows changing the delimiters and the column alignment that are used for creating the LaTeX form of a matrix.

Define a matrix:

sage: a = diagonal_matrix([1, -1])
sage: a
[ 1  0]
[ 0 -1]

Default LaTeX form:

sage: latex(a)
\left(\begin{array}{rr}
1 & 0 \\
0 & -1
\end{array}\right)

Modify settings:

sage: latex.matrix_delimiters('[', ']')
sage: latex.matrix_column_alignment('c')

New LaTeX form:

sage: latex(a)
sage: latex(a)
\left[\begin{array}{cc}
1 & 0 \\
0 & -1
\end{array}\right]

How to find such things by oneself?

The LaTeX form of a is given by latex(a) which in turns calls a._latex_().

Inspect the documentation and the source code with

sage: a._latex_?
sage: a._latex_??
