2015-03-17 00:12:56 -0500 | asked a question | max_symbolic and distributive law with multiplication Minimum and maximum are distributive over multiplication of non-negative numbers, i.e., if a,b,c >= 0 then a * max{ b, c } = max { ab, ac } and the same works for min{}. How can I exploit this in sagemath? Consider the followiing: This does Simplify does not do the simplification I want it to do, which should yield or even better Needless to say, I have also tried So, I wonder, am I missing out on some other fancy function here, or is there a (hopefully easy) way to add a distributive law-feature to the max_symbolic function? |
