#13714 closed defect (fixed)

multi_polynomial.lift(...) affects libsingular internal state; makes ideal.complete_primary_decomposition() fail

Description (last modified by Bouillaguet)

On sage 5.5:

sage: R.<x1,x2> = QQ[]
sage: I = R.ideal(x2**2 + x1 - 2, x1**2 - 1)
Traceback (most recent call last):
ValueError: polynomial is not in the ideal

And then the bug:

sage: I.complete_primary_decomposition()
// ** char_series returns 0 x 0 matrix from 3 input polys (0)

and hangs forever (on sage 5.3 it just SEGFAULTed).

The key in this case is the failing call to lift, i.e., evaluating f.lift(I) while f is not in I. What happens in this case has been changed by #13671 (but the problem in this ticket is independent). It was found while fixing #13671 that when computing f.lift(I), then if f is not in I an error is raised by singular, by setting a global variable. Before #13671, this variable was not reset, and subsequent calls to lift would return junk. After #13671, the global variable is reset and lift works correctly. However, it was apparently not the end of the story.

Looks good but what's up with that matrix2.pyx bit?

comment:4 Changed 8 years ago by Bouillaguet

It's nothing but a mistake (bad MQ management queue). I updated the patch

comment:5 Changed 8 years ago by mstreng

why the duplicate "cdef int errorreported" in /sage/libs/singular/singular-cdefs.pxi?

comment:6 Changed 8 years ago by Bouillaguet

I have no idea :) I'm updating the patch right now.
