Description
See this ask.sagemath.org question. The poster wants an example something like
f(x,y)=x^2*y+y^2+y solutions=solve(list(f.diff()),[x,y]) the_solution=solutions[2] H=f.diff(2); # Hessian matrix
but showing this.
sage: solutions=solve(list(f.diff()),[x,y],solution_dict=True) sage: solutions [{y: 0, x: I}, {y: 0, x: I}, {y: 1/2, x: 0}] sage: H.subs(solutions[2]) [(x, y) > 1 (x, y) > 0] [ (x, y) > 0 (x, y) > 2] sage: H(x,y).subs(solutions[2]) [1 0] [ 0 2]
This seems like a reasonable request.

Hello,
Could you use A = B
instead of A=B
? You did it in the first example but not the second. Something like
sage: solutions = solve(list(f.diff()), [x,y], solution_dict=True)
is much easier to read.

Thanks for pointing that out!
I added some spacing. Is there anything else you noticed?

Doctest depends on dictionary order of symbolic variables:
sage t long src/sage/symbolic/relation.py ********************************************************************** File "src/sage/symbolic/relation.py", line 158, in sage.symbolic.relation Failed example: solutions Expected: [{y: 0, x: I}, {y: 0, x: I}, {y: 1/2, x: 0}] Got: [{x: I, y: 0}, {x: I, y: 0}, {x: 0, y: 1/2}] ********************************************************************** 1 item had failures: 1 of 131 in sage.symbolic.relation [295 tests, 1 failure, 7.50 s]

comment:13 Changed 7 years ago by
I didn't get that error when I tested the file. I merged in the latest release and I still don't get the error. Do you think it could be my Sage installation? It's a pretty clean version except for an optional package for another branch I was working on. Are other people getting this error?
comment:14 Changed 7 years ago by
The doctest sorts dictionaries, but the sort order of symbolic variables is random (and depends strongly on memory locations / the OS). Just rewrite the test as something that doesn't depend on random orders, e.g.
solutions == [{x: I, y: 0}, {x: I, y: 0}, {x: 0, y: 1/2}]

comment:16 Changed 7 years ago by
Interesting, I had no idea the order of symbolic variables was that random.
I updated the doc test using the equality check instead and it seems to work great. Thanks for the fix!
I noticed there was some other tests not using equality checks like this on lines 136 and 143 (and probably more), which is probably where I copied my test from. Should this be a separate ticket or should I modify it on this branch as well?

I found that the other tests did not rely on multiple variables, so they are fine.
I also brought this branch up to date and checked that the docs still build.

The doctests pass and the documentation builds and looks good.

Added two examples in symbolic expressions on:
http://doc.sagemath.org/html/en/reference/calculus/sage/symbolic/relation.html
One is substituting variables into matrices of symbolic functions and the other is solving a multivariate equation and substituting the solution into a matrix.
New commits:
Added example subtituting values into a matrix of symbolic functions.
