Question:How to display an unevaluated cross product like R x V with the LinearAlgebra package in Maple?

Question:How to display an unevaluated cross product like R x V with the LinearAlgebra package in Maple?

Maple 2016

I am using the LinearAlgebra package to do dynamics between a rotating Cartesian coordinate system and a fixed Cartesian coordinate system. The VectorCalculus package is not what I need.

Since I can't seem to get my test worksheet to paste into this post, I will manually enter an "approximation" to it. I assume that the notation [x, y, z] represents a column vector. I also assume that x represents the cross product operator from the operator pallete.

I just want to get any one of the three ways of doing a vector cross product (see below) to simply display in math notation as R x V. What I get from the three methods below for an unevaluated cross product is "ugly".

Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.

R := [x, y, z]

V := [u, v, w]

>R x V

[-vz + wy, uz - wx, -uy + vx]

>'R x V'

Typesetting:-delayCrossProduct(R,V)

>CrossProduct(R, V)

[-vz + wy, uz - wx, -uy + vx]

>'CrossProduct(R,V)'

LinearAlgebra:-CrossProduct(R,V)

> R &x V

[-vz + wy, uz - wx, -uy + vx]

'R &x V'

LinearAlgebra:-&x(R,V)
