Description (last modified by )
From Martin Raum sage-devel:
When we have a power series of infinite precision then why not print an additional O(x^oo)
, that is $O(x^{\infty})$
. That would, indeed, help to distinguish infinite precision power series from polynomials. It only requires a minor change in _repr_
and _latex_
, I suppose.

Replying to fwclarke:
Alternatively, patch the documentation to note that missing bigoh output is considered meaning infinite precision.

I think this is a bad idea. I believe that, as far as is possible, Sage output should reflect standard, contemporary mathematical notation. And I'm not sure anyone uses this notation.
