Hi all,

I have an expression Cos[a t - b]. However when I input it to Mathematica, it automatically converted to Cos[b - a t].

Similarly, Sin[a t - b] would become -Sin[b - a t].

I understand they are equivalent, but for displaying purpose, I would like to have the format of Cos[a t - b] and Sin[a t - b]. Is there any way to do that?

Thank you very much

Regards
Ho
