Ticket #11506, comment 58
v2 v3 16 16 * Deprecate `RR`, `Reals()`, and `RealField()` (`Reals(p)`, `RealField(p)` can probably stay). Replace `RR` by `RFP`. 17 17 * Make it clear in the documentation that these parents represent sets of floatingpoint numbers—particular subsets of the dyadic rationals, augmented with special values such as ±∞ and equipped with welldefined, if peculiar, operations—, not the field of real numbers. 18 * While we're at it, deprecate `RIF` and `RealIntervalField`. Rename them to something like `I F` (a common notation in interval analysis) and `RealFloatingPointIntervals`.18 * While we're at it, deprecate `RIF` and `RealIntervalField`. Rename them to something like `IR` (a common notation in interval analysis) and `RealFloatingPointIntervals`. 19 19 * Stop pretending any of these are fields (or even semigroups). Perhaps introduce a category of "approximate fields" (for lack of a better name). 20 20 * After the deprecation period, consider making `RR` and `Reals` refer to/return `RLF` (or perhaps some new implementation that better models the "true" reals).
