2013-01-08 19:45:27 -0500 | commented answer | latex Function Prevent Simplification Thats a shame but it makes sense. I guess that would have to be added to the sage preparser. Thanks! |

2013-01-08 17:42:24 -0500 | asked a question | latex Function Prevent Simplification Hi, I am trying to use the latex function without the subject simplifying before it converting to LaTeX. This is similar to the hold=True for algebra functions. For example, I want latex(x/x) to return \frac{x}{x} rather than 1. Thanks so much! |

2012-09-03 15:26:09 -0500 | marked best answer | Difference Between var(), QQ() and PolynomialRing()
Polynomial rings are much better at working with polynomials, but nothing else: Using a polynomial variable in a non-polynomial manner automatically converts it to the symbolic ring: |

2012-09-02 20:21:54 -0500 | asked a question | Difference Between var(), QQ() and PolynomialRing() I am rather new to Sage and am trying to understand the internals of Sage better. I encountered some confusion when reading through the reference manual as to the difference between the different ring constructs used in sage. The var() function is of course used to declare a variable for symbolic manipulation but when should one use QQ[] or PolynomialRing()? I ran into this issue with the convolution() function which requires variables within functions to be declared using QQ[] or Polynomial ring and will not work with var(). Why is this? Is QQ the default namespace? How do these namespaces relate to the symbolic ring used with var? Thank you for your help! |
