| 15 | Perhaps even worse: |

| 18 | psi[x](polylog(3,x)) |

| 19 | sage: maxima_calculus(polylog(3,x)) |

| 20 | li[3](x) |

| 21 | }}} |

| 22 | As you see, the polylog doesn't get translated properly! This indicates misimplemented `_maxima_init_evaled_`, and probably those occur in several spots. Perhaps the way `_maxima_init_evaled_` gets called by the translator needs amendment? (the arguments need processing). The problem seems to occur in [http://git.sagemath.org/sage.git/tree/src/sage/functions/special.py#n502 sage/functions/special.py line 502], where the arguments are apparently fed raw into `_maxima_init_evaled_` and where `_maxima_init_evaled_` is usually implemented as some basic string manipulation. |
