#6405 closed defect (duplicate)

Typesetting of imaginary 'I' in new symbolics is not proper

In new symbolics, imaginary 'I' is typeset as 'I' which is not "textbook style". This is a regression compared to Sage 3.4

sage: latex( exp(i*x))
e^{I \, x}

Lower case letter 'i' should be used in the typeset version.

  • Cc robertwb added
  • Milestone set to sage-4.1.1
  • Summary changed from Typesetting of imaginary 'I' in new Symbolics is not proper to Typesetting of imaginary 'I' in new symbolics is not proper

Complex I in new symbolics is nothing but a quadratic number field element.

Robert, any thoughts on how to handle this?

This was fixed by #9017. attachment:9017-latex-sqrt-neg1.patch:ticket:9017 changes a doctest in sage.symbolic.pynac.pyx to test this change.

I'm closing this as a duplicate.
