Description
This was reported on ask.sagemath.org: http://ask.sagemath.org/question/1244/symbolic-vector-norm
Here is an example
sage: matrix(SR,[[x]]).norm() --------------------------------------------------------------------------- TypeError Traceback (most recent call last) /Users/grout/<ipython console> in <module>() /Users/grout/sage-trees/sage-5.0.beta6/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/matrix/matrix2.so in sage.matrix.matrix2.Matrix.norm (sage/matrix/matrix2.c:47759)() /Users/grout/sage-trees/sage-5.0.beta6/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/matrix/matrix0.so in sage.matrix.matrix0.Matrix.change_ring (sage/matrix/matrix0.c:8151)() /Users/grout/sage-trees/sage-5.0.beta6/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/matrix/matrix_space.pyc in __call__(self, entries, coerce, copy, rows) 554 return self(entries.matrix(), copy=False) 555 --> 556 return self.matrix(entries, copy=copy, coerce=coerce, rows=rows) 557 558 def change_ring(self, R): /Users/grout/sage-trees/sage-5.0.beta6/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/matrix/matrix_space.pyc in matrix(self, x, coerce, copy, rows) 1403 x = new_x 1404 copy = False -> 1405 return self.__matrix_class(self, entries=x, copy=copy, coerce=coerce) 1406 1407 def matrix_space(self, nrows=None, ncols=None, sparse=False): /Users/grout/sage-trees/sage-5.0.beta6/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/matrix/matrix_double_dense.so in sage.matrix.matrix_double_dense.Matrix_double_dense.__init__ (sage/matrix/matrix_double_dense.c:3215)() /Users/grout/sage-trees/sage-5.0.beta6/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/symbolic/expression.so in sage.symbolic.expression.Expression.__complex__ (sage/symbolic/expression.cpp:5926)() TypeError: unable to simplify to complex approximation
The problem appears to be an automatic coercion to RDF or CDF. Maybe symbolic matrices should override the method.

This ticket (and the added tests in particular) does not make much sense, unless there exists a symbolic max function. In my opinion, it would be better to return a NotImplementedError? than to return nonsense results.

Use max_symbolic then:
sage: max_symbolic(a,b) max(a, b)

Patch submitted. I also added an example to be sure, and corrected a little mistake in a test in sage/misc/functional.py
