#12068 closed enhancement (fixed)
Numerator for symbolic expression shouldn't use maxima
Reported by:  hivert  Owned by:  hivert 

Priority:  major  Milestone:  sage5.0 
Component:  symbolics  Keywords:  numerator, denominator 
Cc:  Merged in:  sage5.0.beta2  
Authors:  Florent Hivert, Burcin Erocal  Reviewers:  Burcin Erocal, Florent Hivert, KarlDieter Crisman

Description (last modified by )
The code for numerator is currently
def numerator(self): """ Returns the numerator of this symbolic expression. If the [...] """ return self.parent()(self._maxima_().num())
Using Pynac should be much faster.
The patch wraps numer, denom, numer_denom and normal from GiNaC and fixes a
bunch of wrong sphinx markup in expression.pyx
.
Apply trac_12068numer_denom_normalginacfh.patch and trac_12068reviewer.patch.

 Summary changed from Numerator for symbolic expression should'nt use maxima to Numerator for symbolic expression shouldn't use maxima
Looks good to me. It would be better to use elif
in line 6480 and 6481. Otherwise, positive review once the tests pass.
Thank you for working on this.

Done !

I got a all test passed on my laptop except a timeout in sage/schemes/elliptic_curves/ell_rational_field.py
however relaunching a non parallel test on this single file gives:
sage t "sage/schemes/elliptic_curves/ell_rational_field.py" [89.8 s]  All tests passed! Total time for all tests: 89.8 seconds

Declaring py_pow
as an int
caused problems with attachment:trac_12068numer_denom_ginacfh.patch. py_object_from_numeric()
returns a PyObject
. Assigning the return value to an int
worked because Cython was creating a temporary PyObject
and trying to convert that to an int
. This failed if the exponent was not an integer.
attachment:trac_12068denominator.patch fixes this problem and handles expressions which contain only a power
.
Florent can you review my patch?
Apply attachment:trac_12068numer_denom_ginacfh.patch, attachment:trac_12068denominator.patch

Thanks for fixing my mistake. Unfortunately, because I choose to duplicate the code to speedup numerator_denominator
, I also duplicate the mistake. You corrected only one. I'll upload a patch fixing everything.

Hi Burcin,
The uploaded patch should fix everything. attachment:trac_12068numer_denom_fixfh.patch contains my modifications on top of yours and attachment:trac_12068numer_denom_ginacfoldedfh.patch contains everything folded.
Your turn to review ;)

It all looks good. The declaration cdef int py_pow
is redundant in numerator_denominator()
, but I'll switch to positive review anyway.

Bi Burcin,

The following diff

sage/symbolic/expression.pyx
diff git a/sage/symbolic/expression.pyx b/sage/symbolic/expression.pyx
a b cdef class Expression(CommutativeRingEle 1867 1867 assured that if True or False is returned (and proof is False) then 1868 1868 the answer is correct. 1869 1869 1870 INPUT: :1870 INPUT: 1871 1871 1872 1872 ntests  (default 20) the number of iterations to run 1873 1873 domain  (optional) the domain from which to draw the random values
broke the doc. So I had to fix my patch. Doing so I discovered a few more typos and fixed them once for all. In the process I ended up folding the patch for #12072.
So please re review. Sorry for the double review.

Please rereview. Compared to my previous patch, I
 wrapped normal;
 removed the unused
py_pow
declaration;  fixed a bunch of doc typos.
Again sorry for the extra work,
Florent

The changes to the previous patch seem fine, docs are good, tests pass. In fact, it's a very nice patch.
The only problem I spied is in the last hunk:
 ``self``  the symbolic expression converting from  ``target``  (default None) the symbolic expression
is too far indented. If you're going to fix all of this stuff, you might as well make these at the same indentation level as INPUT, such as in the secondtolast hunk.
In fact, I'm attaching a reviewer patch to fix this.
I wonder if there is a more 'obvious' name for normalize
that could be an alias... anyway, not for this ticket. Assuming that Burcin has no objections, positive review other than this.

Should't someone review your trivial reviewer patch before putting positive review ? Anyway, It is an obvious patch and I did review it. So I confirm your positive review.

In every CAS I used, I've always been confused by simplify, normal, combine... I guess Sage isn't an exception.

No, reviewers are usually allowed to make VERY trivial changes, esp. to fix doc, without 'formal' other review, otherwise we would take even longer to review things than normal. Naturally, anyone could decide that "reviewer patch X needs review" if they felt it was nontrivial.

Ginac's behavior is not the same has Maxima: given
1 + 1/(x + 1)
1 + 1/(x + 1)
as numerator and1
as denominator;x + 2
as numerator andx + 1
as denominator.I think both are useful. My patch keeps the current behavior. Is this what we want ?
