Description
The following behavior can be confusing:
sage: var('x,y,z') (x, y, z) sage: t = x+y+z sage: t.subs({x+y:5}) x + y + z
The match()
function for symbolic expressions already provides a link to the relevant part of the GiNaC tutorial:
http://www.ginac.de/tutorial/Pattern-matching-and-advanced-substitutions.html
Perhaps the substitute()
function should do this too.
