Description (last modified by )
This patch fixes the parent and element classes for Hom categories to be purely abstract, and simplifies the Hom logic:
 Unified the logic for selecting the class when building a Homset (e.g. Homset, RingHomset?, HeckeModuleHomspace?, ...). This is now systematically done through the _Hom_ hook. The logic still has a fundamental flaw, but that's for the later #10668.
 The cache for Hom is handled at a single point in Hom In particular, homsets created via the _Hom_ hook are now unique.
 If category is None, Hom simply calls itself with the meet of the categories of the parent, which removes a cache handling duplication in the code
 Parent.Hom calls Hom directly (removes duplicate _Hom_ logic).
 ParentWithBase?.Hom was redundant and is gone.
 Reduce the footprint of the current trick to delegate Hom(F,F)(on_basis=...) to module_morphism, allow for the diagonal option too, an make sure the homset category is set properly.
 Update a doctest in sage.modules.vector_space_homspace to take into account that homsets created via _Hom_ are now unique.
 Scheme is (apparently) an abstract base class; so it should not be instantiated. I changed some doctests in sage.schemes.generic.SchemeMorphism? to use instead the concrete Spec(ZZ). Those doctests were breaking because Scheme does not implement equality, which is required for Hom caching.
As a byproduct, the HeckeModules? category does not import any more HeckeModulesHomspace?, which was a recurrent source of import loops.

Note: there are two doctests failures that I don't know how to handle, related to the refcounting of Singular rings::

 Work issues set to Fix ring_refcount_dict problem
With #12808, #12875 and #12877 applied on top of sage5.1.notebook, all doctests pass. But when adding the patch from here, there are two problems:
sage t force_lib "devel/sage/sage/libs/singular/ring.pyx" sage t force_lib "devel/sage/sage/rings/polynomial/multi_polynomial_libsingular.pyx"
Namely:
sage t force_lib "devel/sage/sage/libs/singular/ring.pyx" ********************************************************************** File "/mnt/local/king/SAGE/experiment/notebook/sage5.1.notebook/devel/sage/sage/libs/singular/ring.pyx", line 469: sage: ring_ptr in ring_refcount_dict Expected: False Got: True **********************************************************************

So, apparently it is only a single problem.

Yeah, I know (see comment 3 above). I feel quite stuck with those failures, and would really appreciate if you could investigate them since you know much better than me the caching for Singular rings.

Why do you import Sets (new line 221)?
Do I understand correctly: If Hom receives None as category, then you determine the category as the meet of the categories of domain and codomain, and call Hom again. Did you test that the calling overhead does not matter?
comment:18 followup: ↓ 28 Changed 9 years ago by
Another point: I had inserted a comment in #11521, namely "Apparently _Hom_ is supposed to be cached." This is why I did not insert stuff in the (weak) cache.
Do you lift that assumption? Then, we should see what _Hom_ methods actually do caching. They should at most do weak caching.

 Status changed from needs_work to needs_review
I have rebased your patch relative to #11521 (as I said: This already has positive review).
Please have a look whether you are happy with my changes: I only changed sage/categories/homset.py, by using the :trac: directive in two places, fixing one hunk that has only applied with fuzz and removing the import of Sets. Apart from that, I adopted your logic of constructing the homset.
So far, I have tested sage/categories/homset.py and have verified that the previously failing tests are indeed fixed by #11521 (in fact, I also had some other pathes applied, but I am convinced that ##11521 suffices). I am now running the full tests suite, with only #11521 (and its dependency #715) and the new patch (and its dependencies #12875 and #12877).

Hm. With sage5.0.beta13 plus #715, #11521, #12875, #12877 and trac_12876_categoryfix_abstract_classntrel11521.patch, I get one error, namely a segfault in
sage t force_lib "devel/sage/sage/rings/number_field/number_field_rel.py"
But strange enough: When I ran it with verbose, all tests passed, and the segfault came from leaving sage. That reminds me another problem: The deallocation of the (unique) pari instance is not done as it is supposed to be. This is fixed by the second patch of #12215. Hence, I am trying again, with #12215 added.
comment:21 followup: ↓ 26 Changed 9 years ago by
Yes! Adding #12215 fixes the segfault. I am now running doctests. Do you mind adding it as another dependency, provided that the test suite passes?

I made some additional cosmetic changes in a reviewer patch.
Further questions:
In sage/category/hecke_modules.py, you refer to ticket number ??? for fixing _test_zero and _test_elements. In sage/schemes/elliptic_curves/ell_curve_isogeny.py, you leave a reference to trac open as well. Have the tickets now been created? I didn't fix that yet.
I see that you rename Rings.HomCategory.ParentMethods.__new__
into __new__bx
. Does that mean the ugly __new__
method ought to be removed (finally!)?
But then, shouldn't __getnewargs__
be removed as well?
Please tell whether you want to address these questions in an additional patch. And I hope you agree with adding #715, #11521 and #12215 to the dependencies? Only #12215 needs review (hint...).
If you do agree, then put this to positive review, please.

Sorry, I made a lastminute change in the reviewer patch (namely, by mistake, I changed "ticket ???" into "ticket 12876", but I think ??? really refers to a ticket that has not been created, yet. Anyway, feel free to change ??? into something real! And disregard trac_12876reviewer.2.patch, which was created by mistake.

comment:24 Changed 9 years ago by
I tried whether one can remove the __new__
and __getnewargs__
methods. However, when doing so, one gets a reproducible timeout in the tests for sage/rings/polynomial/multi_polynomial_sequence.py  that's the only error.
So, better keep it as it is.
Recall: I would give it a positive review, if you agree with the additional dependencies.

I did not test it. But it simplifies quite much the logic and the calling overhead occurs only for the first call, so I assumed it was negligible.

Oops. Those are #12879 and #12880 respectively.
I see that you rename
Rings.HomCategory.ParentMethods.__new__
into__new__bx
. Does that mean the ugly__new__
method ought to be removed (finally!)? But then, shouldn't__getnewargs__
be removed as well?
Yes, that was my intention indeed: in principle they should not be needed, and I forgot to remove them. I'll investigate the failure you report on Monday, unless you beat me to it.
Please tell whether you want to address these questions in an additional patch.
Unless removing getnewargs turns out to be hard, I'd rather fix all of the above right now. Feel free to experiment: I won't download the patches before Monday.
Thanks a lot for all your quick work on this :)

Yes: I consider that all the caching logic should be in Hom; in particular the _Hom_ methods should not do caching (and if I recall correctly, they currently don't). We should probably add a note about this in the documentation of Hom.

I have uploaded a reviewer's patch which fixes the trac ticket numbers, and removes completely Rings.HomCategory?. I could not reproduce the timeout:

Ok, this is totally benign. Now, to minimize change, the easiest is probably to keep the HomCategory? even if we delete its containt. The updated reviewer's patch does just that.

Apparently this is caused by emptying the HomCategory of Rings().

PS: The obvious fix is to change the expected result in the test...
comment:48 Changed 9 years ago by
Me stupid! The failing test is only introduced in #11768. So, I had better not apply more than the necessary patches...
Running the failing tests without the additional patch works.
Hence, repeating the test suite now... Sorry!

 Work issues changed from commit message to fix doctests and segfaults
With sage5.3.b2 plus #715, #11521, #12215, #12313, #13370, #13378 and the patches from here, I get
make ptest ... The following tests failed: sage t force_lib devel/sage/sage/interfaces/r.py # 1 doctests failed sage t force_lib devel/sage/sage/rings/polynomial/infinite_polynomial_ring.py # 0 doctests failed sage t force_lib devel/sage/sage/categories/hecke_modules.py # 1 doctests failed
The error in hecke_modules.py is due to

The error in expect/r.py looks strange to me:

The error is not reproducible, at least not if I run the test individually.
In infinite_polynomial_ring.py one gets a segfault. One does not get a segfault when running the tests with verbose

Got it!
Infinite polynomial rings were using WeakKeyDict
in _has_coerce_map_from_
for caching whether there is a coercion. That has probably been a bad idea, because the methods that are really used (has_coerce_map
) have a cache anyway.
Removing the additional cache fixes the segfault.

Anyway. There just remains the error in sage t force_lib devel/sage/sage/categories/hecke_modules.py, which amounts to writing a _an_element_ method. The error with r seems to have been noise.

I think implementing a _an_element_
is easy enough that I can do it in another reviewer patch. One thing doesn't work as described in the documentation, though. It says that a homomorphism of Hecke algebras can not only be obtained from a matrix (that works) but from an element of a Hecke algebra (I suppose: An element of the codomain). However, this isn't implemented.
I am not competent to implement it. So, I suggest that I start with implementing _an_element_
, try to use the category framework on these homsets (i.e., define the Element attribute), and very important: Make the homsets unique upon pickling. Namely:
sage: M = ModularForms(Gamma0(7), 4) sage: H = Hom(M,M) sage: H is loads(dumps(H)) False
so that by consequence several tests from the test suite fail.

I was confident that I have produced a patch (not posted, though) that does the right thing with the categories of Hecke homsets. In fact, the full TestSuite
of these homsets passes. However, a surprising amount of tests fail, all over sage. So, I guess you are right: One should work around for now, and fix it for real in #12879.

Oops, I thought that I had an outdated version of my last patch, but apparently it has been the correct one. Anyway, I'll restart the patchbot and will run the tests on my own machine as well, and will of course have a look at Nicolas' patches
From Nicolas' comment on #12879, I understood that he accepts to make the TestSuite
temporarily silent and leave a proper fix to the number theorists. I guess that's a healthy attitude...
I hope that Nicolas also likes the fix for infinite polynomial rings.

comment:68 followup: ↓ 74 Changed 9 years ago by
Some questions, Nicolas:
The first patch contains
sage: category = FiniteDimensionalModulesWithBasis(QQ) sage: X = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, [1,2,3], category = category); X.rename("X") sage: Y = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, [1,2,3,4], category = category); Y.rename("Y") sage: H = Hom(X, Y) sage: H.zero().category_for() Category of finite dimensional modules with basis over Rational Field
Why are X and Y renamed? There is yet another location where things are renamed, namely
Diagonal functions can be constructed using the ``diagonal`` option:: sage: X = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, [1,2,3,4]); X.rename("X") sage: Y = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, [1,2,3,4], key="Y"); Y.rename("Y") sage: H = Hom(X, Y)
Here, I also wonder about the "key" argument.
In sage.rings.ring.pyx, you state:
""" This temporary alias is here for those instances of :class:`Ring` that are not yet properly in the :class:`Rings`() category. TESTS:: sage: A = Ring(ZZ) sage: A._Hom_.__module__ 'sage.categories.rings' sage: Hom(A,A).__class__ <class 'sage.rings.homset.RingHomset_generic_with_category'> """ _Hom_ = Rings.ParentMethods.__dict__['_Hom_']
Are there any rings that do not initialise the category, after #9138? Hence, what would happen without that alias? Perhaps I'll test it, after finishing the tests for the original patches.
comment:69 Changed 9 years ago by
All tests passed, and the patches look good to me, modulo the questions that I asked above. I will now rerun the tests without the alias for _Hom_.
comment:70 Changed 9 years ago by
When removing the _Hom_ alias, I get

Here is the problem with removing the nasty alias:
sage: A.<a,b> = PowerSeriesRing(QQ) sage: A._is_category_initialized() False sage: isinstance(A,Ring) True
Hence, apparently Ring.__init__
is not called on PowerSeriesRing
. That's nasty, but I think in order to make any progress it would be better to leave that to a different ticket.

Hi Simon,
Sorry, I am slow answering; I was immersed all afternoon in tracking down a nasty bug where UniqueRepresentation? was violated. It turned out that the UniqueRepresentation? dict had to equal entries in its keys (gasp), and that was due to a tricky mro order for a non trivial inheritance involving Category_singleton and FastHash? which got the hash to change over time ... Anyway ...
Replying to SimonKing:
Diagonal functions can be constructed using the ``diagonal`` option:: sage: X = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, [1,2,3,4]); X.rename("X") sage: Y = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, [1,2,3,4], key="Y"); Y.rename("Y") sage: H = Hom(X, Y)Why are X and Y renamed? There is yet another location where things are renamed, namely Here, I also wonder about the "key" argument.
I do this fairly systematically in the tests in modules_with_basis. It makes it immediate to check that the domain and codomain are set properly when looking at the repr of a morphism or homset. They key is to force the domain and codomain to be distinct (otherwise, and this happened to me, if the code accidently interchanges the two it will get unnoticed).
Well, and for good or bad, once you rename a given parent in a doctest, you have to rename consistently this parent in all other doctests in the same file. Or to call X.rename() at the end of the doctest.

Can you just add a mini comment on #13412 stating that once it's done the alias can be removed?

I have checked the change on infinite polynomial rings, and am ok with it.
Do you mind folding all patches together? Now that we have checked the little steps, that will leave a better overview for the future. And that will take care of the commit messages :)

And then, it's ready for positive review! Yippee!

It's not so much about the release manager than for whoever will come back to this ticket in the future, and will want to have a synthetic view of what the patch(es) does.
Separate patches are temporarily good for incremental review. They can be interesting too in the long run when they do independent changes. But when they pile on top of each other (typically for trivial typo fixes) it goes in the way of the reader. Typically (s)he will read the main patch, see a typo, wonder if it has been fixed, will have to dig through the followup patches, think about the order in which they are to be applied, etc.

I wouldn't remove the old patches from trac  and actually I wouldn't be able to remove them , unless there are problems with disc space etc. And IF there will eventually be problems with disc space, I guess a better solution would be to start deleting the attachments of tickets that are merged since, say, at least one year.

 Work issues changed from add commit message to one patch to Understand why the crash in infinite_polynomial_ring is not fixed and what happens with r
That's bad. Pathbot reports

The crash in infinite_polynomial_ring.py was supposed to be fixed with one of the folded patches, namely removing the additional weak cache. The second one has occurred on my computer as well  but was not reproducible, so I thought it was just some noise.
Bad.

I tried to valgrind the failing segfault (Nils Bruin recommended valgrind and posted a sage.supp at #11918), in the hope that it'll find something fishy even if it doesn't result in a segfault.

Too bad, #13145 didn't help.
I'd really need some help to trace the problem down. Could someone run the test in verbose mode on one of the machines exposing the segfault, so that one can see whether the problem is during the tests or while shutting down Sage? Can someone produce (and post) a backtrace?

It doesn't work. Hence, again I'd like to finally see a backtrace of the segfault. So far, I tried to reproduce the segfault on my linux laptop, but to no avail. Next, I'll try bsd.math.

It is really really REALLY frustrating. Volker's patchbot keeps reporting a segfault, but I can not reproduce it on bsd.math, With #5457 and the new GAP spkg, make ptest just reports a single error:
sage t force_lib "devel/sage/sage/interfaces/gap.py" ********************************************************************** File "/scratch/sking/sage5.3.rc1/devel/sage/sage/interfaces/gap.py", line 809: sage: gap(2) Expected: 2 Got: <BLANKLINE> ********************************************************************** 1 items had failures: 1 of 4 in __main__.example_21 ***Test Failed*** 1 failures.

That's rather strange, but I guess that's the problem of the GAP spkg.
In any case, I don't see a segfault. Not on my laptop, not on the machine in my office, not on bsd.math.

The work issue was "understand the crash of r". I think it is now understood, because it could be solved by using os.realpath
in some test, where apparently a relative path was stored.
All segfaults that I have seen are gone because of #13447. But it would be nice if Volker's patchbot could try it again, because it seems to have a tendency to break in a different way than my machines.
I have read the patch carefully in the past, and all tests pass, with the patches stated in comment:97.

 Work issues set to needs rebase
comment:104 Changed 8 years ago by
comment:105 Changed 8 years ago by
I just uploaded a rebased patch. This patch sounds almost good to go.
Still, there are a couple failing tests which all boil to the following little design issue:
Take as typical situation A to be Rings().parent_class, and B to be some NumberField? parent class. Assume that P is an instance of A resp. B and that:
 A implements _Hom_ so that P._Hom_(codomain) is a RingHomset? if codomain is a ring
 B implements _Hom_ so that P._Hom_(codomain) is a NumberFieldHomset? if codomain is a NumberField?
Let P be an instance of B and codomain a ring. With the current logic Hom(P, codomain) will try the later, which will fail, but won't proceed to try the former. So the result will be a plain Homset, and not a RingHomset? as desired.
For some reasons this situation did not appear a year ago. Presumably some tests were added in the mean time. Or we did not run the tests with long ...
What's the best way out?
 Option 1: Walk the mro of the class of P, and call cls._Hom_(P, codomain) in turn until something does not fail
 Option 2: change the protocol so that the _Hom_ method should call super instead of failing if they cannot handle the situation
 Option 3: ???
Cheers,
Nicolas

 Work issues failing tests; design issue deleted
Two failures were actually trivial:
 A trivial doctest in devel/sage/doc/en/thematic_tutorials/coercion_and_categories.rst
 More skips were needed in the new TestSuite?(H) in line 114 of sage.categories.hecke_modules (some new test methods that require the currently missing an_element were added since last year)
I implemented a simplistic protocol for the above issue. If P._Hom_ fails, then try category.parent_class._Hom_. This is sufficient for the other failing test in Parent.
Other than this, the attached patch is a straightforward rebase of the previous one. So to finalize the review it would suffice to:
 glance at the above change
 recheck sage.categories.homset.Hom
I am currently running the long tests, but I expect everything to pass.

This is a pretty unstable situation  it doesn't appear all the time and not on all platforms. I think that the idea of replacing this with a test that works for now is fine  see Simon's suggestion at #9970.
I am fine with that. I just still need to understand at some point how this is related to this ticket :)

Patchbot times out at sage/interfaces/ecm.py. However, with the first two patches, make ptestlong passes.
My plan is to modify the second patch, so that reference to #9970 is preserved, and to repeat make ptestlong with the third patch.

What other dependency is there for the third patch?

Given that the other patches don't change anything in the R interface, it is almost impossible that this ticket could have any influence on the R test. Or at least, it requires a good explanation if something did change.

From the commit message:
 If category is None, Hom simply calls itself with the meet of the categories of the parent, which removes a cache handling duplication.
I don't know if that's a good idea. Duplicating the cache costs virtually nothing (because all objects, categories and homsets involved are there anyway), but it speeds up the most commonly used case, namely category=None. Computing the meet of the underlying categories is expensive, even though it is cached.
comment:142 followup: ↓ 147 Changed 8 years ago by
Question: Is it really needed that any single category defines its own HomCategory
, which in most cases is just
class HomCategory(HomCategory): pass
?
Since all classes for categories inherit from Category
, couldn't one just define the HomCategory
there, and only replace it when really needed?
This could be for a different ticket, though. I just wonder.

BTW, thank you for fixing the coercion cache of InfinitePolynomialRing

Oh you are right. I meant to avoid a duplication in the source code, not in the caching itself. I agree with you, the current code is wrong. I am going to fix this right now.
Thanks for catching this!

Well, most categories actually don't define a HomCategory?. I did not strip the now trivial HomCategory? in Schemes just as to avoid having to fix some trivial doctest failures elsewhere (without it, a Hom(scheme,scheme) was downgraded to the category of homsets of sets).
This could be for a different ticket, though. I just wonder.
Yup. At this point we have very little use cases of HomCategories?, and I don't have a good view on how often this gadget will be used, and thus what the sane default should be. So I would indeed leave things untouched for now until we have more experience.

I am fine with this change. And since you had forgotten that you had written it in the first place, I consider your selfreview of this piece as sufficient :)

Ah shoot; I had done this in the description but not here. Thanks. I really don't like that the patch bot is extracting this info from the comments rather than the description. Oh well.

All test passed:
Well, almost. I got the following error:

OK, I am just waiting for my own tests to finish, and will then provide a reviewer patch, adding a test that shows that providing Category.meet([X.category(),Y.category()])
is equivalent to providing None
