Description (last modified by )
after #11829, #11838, #12918, #12928, here is another bug in multivariate factorization over prime fields:
---------------------------------------------------------------------- | Sage Version 5.4.1, Release Date: 2012-11-15 | | Type "notebook()" for the browser-based notebook interface. | | Type "help()" for help. | ---------------------------------------------------------------------- sage: U.<y,t> = GF(2)[] sage: f y*t^8 + y^5*t^2 + y*t^6 + t^7 + y^6 + y^5*t + y^2*t^4 + y^2*t^2 + y^2*t + t^3 + y^2 + t^2 sage: f.factor() y*t^8 + y^5*t^2 + y*t^6 + t^7 + y^6 + y^5*t + y^2*t^4 + y^2*t^2 + y^2*t + t^3 + y^2 + t^2 sage: f % (t^2+t+y+1) 0
When will Sage be usable for this kind of computation?

Paul,
to be fair #13672 isn't a bug in Singular but an issue with Pari and how we use it. Also, I am not sure there is a component we could use besides Singular for factoring. In any case, I've forwarded your bug report.

Replying to zimmerma:
maybe one should consider replacing Singular by another more reliable component?
If there were any (for multivariate polynomials etc.), we would immediately use it in Singular. BTW: when reported upstream, the response time is quite good, I think.

from Martin Lee:
I have just committed a fix for this under 15453.

Martin Lee tells me the bug is fixed by this commit: https://github.com/Singular/Sources/pull/215
Also it is fixed in Singular 3-1-6. Any plan to upgrade the Singular version?
Martin also tells me Singular 3-1-7 is planned within the next month.

on http://www.loria.fr/~zimmerma/singular-3-1-5.p8.spkg I've put an updated Singular spkg which includes the first patch of https://github.com/Singular/Sources/pull/215. This seems to be enough to solve this bug.
The attached patch adds a non-regression test.

Wouldn't it be safer to include all four commits? Did you check whether this solves #14658?

Jeroen,
Wouldn't it be safer to include all four commits?
indeed (maybe only the first three, since the last one only adds tests). But I didn't know how to extract the diff, thus I edited the Singular source file manually, it took then several hours on my laptop to recompile the spkg and rebuild Sage, thus I was quite happy it worked (currently running sage -t --long).
Did you check whether this solves #14658?
unfortunately not. The first example of #14658 does no longer produce an error (same with vanilla 5.11 btw) but the factorization is incomplete:
sage: R.<x1,x2,x3> = QQ['x1,x2,x3'] sage: f = (x1+x2+x3)*(2*x1-x2+x3+2)*(4*x1+x2+x3+2)*(8*x1-x2+x3+4) sage: f.factor() (x1 + x2 + x3) * (64*x1^3 - 24*x1^2*x2 - 6*x1*x2^2 + x2^3 + 56*x1^2*x3 - 8*x1*x2*x3 - x2^2*x3 + 14*x1*x3^2 - x2*x3^2 + x3^3 + 128*x1^2 - 20*x1*x2 - 4*x2^2 + 68*x1*x3 - 4*x2*x3 + 8*x3^2 + 80*x1 - 4*x2 + 20*x3 + 16)
The other example still breaks with Floating point exception
.

my Singular spkg was corrupted. I made a new one (same url).

When updating a spkg, you should add a Changelog entry in SPKG.txt
. Also, changes should be committed to the Mercurial repo (hg add patches/singular_13770.patch
and hg commit
).
I will make these changes and try to use the 3 commits from the upstream pull request.

To download patches from github, see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6188591/download-github-pull-request-as-unified-diff (I agree it is hard to find out)
comment:18 Changed 8 years ago by
Also rebasing to #14737.
comment:19 Changed 8 years ago by
thank you Jeroen for the pointers. I thus let you continue on this ticket.

just answering to my own question:

this is planned in #14333
