Hi all,

I have tried to use SymPy in Org Mode code blocks, export LaTeX
expressions to displayed equations, and refer to those with
labels. My current solution is ugly, which has left me with a
strong feeling that there must be a better way.

Sensitive Org Mode users are warned. Here comes a brief
description of my current solution.

* The equation is defined inside a SymPy block, e.g.:

a, R, L = symbols('\\alpha R L')
equ = Eq(R, L * sin(a))

* The LaTeX representation for equ, and the rest of the LaTeX
code needed for producing a displayed equation, with a label,
are generated with the Python function expequ:

#+BEGIN_SRC python :session :results none :exports none
def expequ(expr, label):
# will write out code for export of SymPy equation
expression = latex(expr, mode="plain")
print("""
\\begin{equation}
\\label{%(label)s}
%(expr)s
\\end{equation}""" % {'expr': expression, 'label': label})
#+END_SRC

* At the place where I want to display equ, I call expequ like
this:

#+HEADER:  :results output latex overwrite :exports results
#+BEGIN_SRC python :session
expequ(equ2,"equ:labeltest")
#+END_SRC

* ...which yields:

#+RESULTS:
#+BEGIN_EXPORT latex
\begin{equation}
\label{equ:labeltest}
R = L \sin{\left(\alpha \right)}
\end{equation}
#+END_EXPORT

How many painfully obvious solutions have I missed?

Yours
Rasmus
