separate coefficient in latex representation of mul expressions
This is from Sage ticket #13356:
sage: e = 2 * 2^(1/3) sage: print latex(e) 2 \, 2^{\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)}
After talking to Andrey at SD48, we decided that a better representation would be to print \cdot
if the first character after the overall_coeff
is a number.

Use \cdot to separate coefficient from following digit in latex mul output.

#18. This is Sage ticket #13356.The overall coefficient is printed first in the output of mul objects. In the latex representation, if the first character of the rest of the output is a digit, this may produce confusing results.
sage: e = 2 * 2^(1/3) sage: print latex(e) 2 \, 2^{\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)}
Now we use \cdot as a separator in this case to get:
sage: latex(2 * 2^x) 2 \cdot 2^{x}
