When I type
Is there a way to tell Mathematica to *display* terms with negative
powers as x^-n and not as 1/x^n ? (i.e keep the term just like it
would appear on paper).
Another example, suppose I type
expr = a*x^-2 + b *x^-1 +
The reason I want to do this, is just for display purposes. When I print
the expression on the screen, I'd like it to look like x^-1 and not like
1/x (to better match how the expression look like in the textbook)
I am trying to avoid having to convert everything to a string, and force
the form to the way I want. I tried Hold functions, and
TraditionalForm, but can't get it to print as I want.
I am hoping there is an easy trick to do this?
