Currently we get this: tex('(a # b)); => $$a # b$$ tex('(a and b)); => $$a(\and)b$$ tex('(a or b)); => $$a(\or)b$$ tex('(not a)); => $$\not a$$ Which are all invalid. `\not', `\and', `\or' and `#' should be replaced with `\neg', `\land', `\lor' and `\ne'. Additionally `or' and `and' should be texinfix not texnary. After applying the attached patch we get this: tex('(a # b)); => $$a\ne b$$ tex('(a and b)); => $$a\land b$$ tex('(a or b)); => $$a(\lor )b$$ tex('(not a)); => $$\neg\,a$$ The parens in `or' still aren't quite right, but at least it's valid TeX.

Similarly for 2/2^(2/3). On the other hand, x/sqrt(x) => sqrt(x). And of course sqrt(2) simplifies to itself  it doesn't become 2/sqrt(2)!! I believe the original examples should simplify to sqrt(2) and 2^(1/3). Note that 2^(4/3) => 2*2^(1/3) (the current behavior) is probably CORRECT, in order to make things like 10^(10/3) intelligible. Or is there something I'm missing?

But it should be the default in the general simplifer. The logic already appears to be in the general simplifier, but there is a bug in this particular case. If the general simplifier's philosophy were to leave such things untouched, why does it simplify x/sqrt(x) and the like?

Bessel_J is used only in the file bessel.lisp, and %J everywhere else (comm, hyp, hypgeo, ode2). Could we unify these?

I think we should unify them to just one or the other. Bessel_J is better because it's more explicit, but %J is closer to the typical math notation.

But it should also know about max, min. And that entier(x) <= x.  You can respond by visiting: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=104933&aid=720875&group_id=4933

That is satisfied in this case. In fact, you can choose X=N. The separate magnitudes of the real and imaginary parts are irrelevant.
