Uwe, in the page 2 you have on top an specific trigonometric example
(Blancos) without brackets. And more, when I say that the brackets are no
necessary is because LaTeX add a little space between the function and his
argument. So the reality is that LaTeX don't type,
with a little more space after "cos" and this is very comprehensive for
Please don't mention me the Wikipedia because this resource isn't at all a
"canon" for nothing.

See the page Nr. 2 in the document ortomatem.pdf refered in the Lyx's
There is no such reference.
I googled this:
There the also using round brackets on page 2 (Disposición de fórmulas
page and 13
They write there for example
This is inexact wrong because this could mean
cos(2)*v*t or cos(2*v)*t
Moreover this is against the the character omitting rules, see below.
in the same document;and the reference to the ISO 31 in the page Nr. 18
about the round brackets.
In the norm it is defined that you _can_ but needn't to omit the brackets.
But omitting the brackets leads to inexact result:
In the first case I meant tan(2)*p*t, in the second I meant tan(2*p)*t. So
you see the problem.
Besides this, look at
all other Wikipedia entries state the same. Typesetting rules are
important to be able to communicate with each other. You can take any math
book, look at webpages, school books, and also another LyX user told you
as mathematician that your notation is incorrect. So it's up to you to
change it or to ignore this.
