I downloaded and built

SageMath version 7.6, Release Date: 2017-03-25

Working in notebook() with typeset checked, I now get the correct value: a a_bar . How to get |a|^2 ?

Am using

SageMath Version 6.8, Release Date: 2015-07-26 on Fedora 24, x86

Seems I am 1.5 years behind (although up-to-date as a system package).

Will download & build sage-7.5.1-Fedora_24-x86_64.tar.bz2

Thanks for the feedback.

As a newbie, I must be missing something, but here is the question:

With this setup:

var('a', domain=CC) 
a.norm()
a.norm().simplify()

The last line displays as a^2, but should be |a|^2 .

What am I missing?
