Description (last modified by )
Create this graph:
sage: F = GF(3) sage: gens = [matrix(F,2,[1,0, 1,1]), matrix(F,2, [1,1, 0,1])] sage: group = MatrixGroup(gens) sage: G = group.cayley_graph()
It is not too big:
sage: G Digraph on 24 vertices
Note that since the vertices of G are matrices, the default format='tkz_graph'
does not work. One need to use format='dot2tex'
. With dot2tex-2.8.7-2 and graphviz installed, the following work:
sage: G.set_latex_options(format='dot2tex', prog='neato') sage: view(G) sage: G.set_latex_options(format='dot2tex', prog='twopi') sage: view(G) sage: G.set_latex_options(format='dot2tex', prog='fdp') sage: view(G)
But not these ones:
sage: G.set_latex_options(format='dot2tex', prog='dot') sage: view(G) An error occurred. ... LaTex error sage: G.set_latex_options(format='dot2tex', prog='circo') sage: view(G) An error occurred. ... LaTex error
I know a workaround which is to use the tikz2pdf script which compiles fine. But, it would be nice if view could compile G as well.

If you run
view(G, debug=True)
, you should get more information about the error.
