Hi. I know f.taylor(x, x_0, n) would generate an n-order Taylor approximation of f around x_0 for a function of a single variable. How can I do this for multiple variables? I know Maxima can handle it. How do I do this in sage?

You can do the following:

f(x,y)=sin(x)*y
taylor(f(x,y),(x,pi),(y,2),4)

or

f.taylor((x,pi),(y,2),4)

I'm not sure what mistake I was making; it seems so obvious. Thank you so much!
