Hi,
for printing you may simply replace
{Cos[x]->cx,Sin[x]->sx}
and continue to work with the original expression

| How can I introduce the following definitions:
|
|    cx for Cos[x]
|  sx for Sin[x]
|
| where, the argument x, will always be a single 
symbol, and then still be
| able to use the trigonometric identities 
associated with Sin, Cos; e.g.,
|
|  cx^2 + sx^2 = 1
|
| Note, this is not  c x (3 symbol expression); 
but,  cx (2 symbol
| expression).
| Why? Because I have some rather large matrices 
with many elements that
| contain expressions in Cos and Sin terms that 
make printing and
| displaying messy and using the MatrixForm can 
give truncation in the
| printed output.
