Description (last modified by )
Custom numeric evaluation functions defined in the _evalf_()
method of symbolic functions accept only the parent of the result as an argument. We should expand this to allow passing an algorithm
parameter as well.
Merge together with dependencies (i.e. there are circular dependencies).

I'm trying to rebase the patch trac_12289evalf_dictionary.patch to sage5.0, but I'm running into a problem with the type of py_funcs.py_float
. In the patch py_float has type object (*)(object, object)
but in sage5.0, it has type object (*)(object, PyObject *)
I guess because of a pynac change in the meantime.
To be more specific, with this type def for py_float
:
cdef public object py_float(object n, object kwds) except +:
I rebuild sage and get:
Error compiling Cython file:  ... py_funcs.py_is_prime = &py_is_prime py_funcs.py_integer_from_long = &py_integer_from_long py_funcs.py_integer_from_python_obj = &py_integer_from_python_obj py_funcs.py_float = &py_float ^  sage/symbolic/pynac.pyx:2040:24: Cannot assign type 'object (*)(object, object)' to 'object (*)(object, PyObject *)'
Any suggestions (burcin?)

I've been working on this ticket today at sd40.5. I've got burcin's changes working in sage5.0 with a caveat. Here's how to get the example in comment:1 working in sage5.0:
 install the patched pynac0.2.4.p1 spkg at http://sage.math.washington.edu/home/bjones/pynac0.2.4.p1.spkg. this spkg is the pynac0.2.4 spkg from #12950 which has been patched to include the changes from burcin's
pynacwip
branch of pynac mentioned above.
 apply all patches at #12950, here is a shell script to help that (run from
$SAGE_ROOT/devel/sage
): http://sage.math.washington.edu/home/bjones/trac_12950_apply.sh

Regarding Doug's comment on
erf(0).n(algorithm='foo')
Is this something we want to fix here? I'm not sure whether this is behavior that is supported with this patch, though perhaps it should be. I think that so far this is only putting in infrastructure, right? I don't see any doctests here, for instance.

I think that we definitely need at least one example of how to do this if we aren't going to have any other documentation here.

We need to fix this.

Okay, Burcin figured out what he forgot here :) and most of the rest should be easily fixable.
comment:21 Changed 7 years ago by
Okay, everything fixed except a segfault on beta which is exactly the same one which this fixed. Burcin says that this needs to be handled properly and so
static ex beta_evalf(const ex & x, const ex & y, PyObject* parent) { if (is_exactly_a<numeric>(x) && is_exactly_a<numeric>(y)) { try { return exp(lgamma(ex_to<numeric>(x))+lgamma(ex_to<numeric>(y))lgamma(ex_to<numeric>(x+y))); } catch (const dunno &e) { } } return beta(x,y).hold(); }
in ginac/inifcns_gamma.cpp needs to be worked on in addition to other stuff.

This is now #14778. Shouldn't impact this being merged.
By which to say, this passes all tests. The most recent fixes are fine. Burcin, what would need to be reviewed still?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this would do it, because of
def _numerical_approx(self, prec=None, digits=None, algorithm=None):
in the symbolic expression file.

This ticket depends on an SPKG update. The patchbot cannot handle those ATM.
IIRC, the pynac update is complete and waiting for review. See #15198 for details.

In fact the doctest was expected to change... so needs review for the two basic changes I made. What was done before was already reviewed and I'm happy in case it was not.

I can't do actual testing now (or any time soon, I've really fallen off the development radar screen) but these minor changes in the last two commits are completely fine as long as the doc change fixes the problem. Hopefully we'll actually start implementing some of these algorithms now...

Is there any particular reason that this was done for _evalf_
and not plain _eval_
?
comment:45 Changed 5 years ago by
Similarly: shouldn't __call__
support an algorithm
argument such that one could do
sage: f(0.12345, algorithm="foobar")
The
evalf_dict
branch of Pynac available here, with the attached patches applied to the Sage library, allows this:The docstrings for
_convert()
etc. methods of symbolic expressions need to be updated to reflect these changes.
