Description (last modified by )
This example was spotted by Dino Lorenzini:
sage: t = QQ['t'].0 sage: K.<g> = NumberField(t^4 - t^3-3*t^2 - t +1) sage: x=-3/5*g^3 + 2/5*g^2 + 3/5*g + 4/5 sage: y=1/15*g^3 - 3/5*g^2 + 3/5*g + 17/15 sage: r = (x^2*y - x*y + y - 1) / (x^2*y - x) sage: s = (x*y - y + 1) / (x*y) sage: c = s*(r - 1) sage: b = c*r sage: E = EllipticCurve(K,[1-c,-b,-b,0,0]) sage: E.local_data()
which causes a TypeError
in _reduce_local
.
Tickets that may be linked to this are #11630 and #9410.
Added later: Moreover I can add another bug that he showed me
sage: R.<t> = QQ[] sage: K.<g> = NumberField(t^4 - t^3 - 3*t^2 - t + 1) sage: E = EllipticCurve([ -43/625*g^3 + 14/625*g^2 - 4/625*g + 706/625, -4862/78125*g^3 - 4074/78125*g^2 - 711/78125*g + 10304/78125, -4862/78125*g^3 - 4074/78125*g^2 - 711/78125*g + 10304/78125, 0,0]) sage: E.global_integral_model()
ends in a AssertionError: bug in global_integral_model
.

NOTE: 32-bit doctests require #15243 to be applied on top of these patches.

Replying to cremona:
Of course it would be possible to have local_data() do this. At the very least, local data should give a more polite message.
Not only that. The documentation says that non-integral model are allowed. And I firmly believe they should be. I am not in favour of making the model globally integral beforehand, again because it should stay a local algorithm.

Just so that I don't forget what I found out so far :
The issue, as silly as it sounds, comes up from __repr__
this class. This does not display _Emin
the minimal equation that Tate's algorithm found, instead it wants to compute minimal_model
. This does nothing but calling _reduced_model
in ell_number_fields.py
. And that is global again. So in _reduce_model
it checks if the coefficients are integers, while we only need that they are local integers here.
The quick solution I see is to add to the local class a function to reduce the model locally. But I will have to check what that is going to break.

OK, I solved the second problem in global_integral_model
. The algorithm did not check that e was negative - for indeed a uniformiser for one place could be one for another and then the non-integrality at the later was already done. Rather than just adding if e<0:
I decided to rewrite it to make it do a minimal number of changes. Patch to come.
comment:7 Changed 8 years ago by
I changed my mind about the first problem. There is no meaning to a local version of reduced equation. So in order not to break anything, I propose to reduce the local minimal equation only if it is globally integral coefficients.
The attached patch was exported from 5.9 after having applied the patched for #12509 #13953 #11630 in that order. It solves the two above issues.

Thanks. Can you afterwards give a positive review ?

I think this ticket only needs a "mathematical green light" to get a positive review. As I am not an elliptic guy, I would prefer if some expert would enter here and say let's go.

I am happy to give this the required green light -- have not tested, but I understand the problem and the solution looks good. So as long as the patches apply to 5.12.beta4 and tests pass, I am happy with it getting positive review.

Does the algorithm depend on choices? On arando (32-bit Ubuntu 13.04):

Indeed, the uniformizer is not unique:
On 64-bit:
sage: K.<t> = NumberField(x^4 - x^3 - 3*x^2 - x + 1) sage: [K.uniformizer(P) for P,e in factor(K.ideal(5))] [t^2 - t + 1, t^3 - t^2 - 4*t - 1, -t^3 + 2*t^2 + 3*t - 1]
On 32-bit:
sage: K.<t> = NumberField(x^4 - x^3 - 3*x^2 - x + 1) sage: [K.uniformizer(P) for P,e in factor(K.ideal(5))] [t^2 - t + 1, t^2 - t - 1, -t^3 + 3*t + 2]

I think the best solution is to "fix" the uniformizer
function, I'm thinking about a patch...

Thanks, I think that is the best option. I am looking at your patch on #15243 now. I wonder if there is any chance of persuading Karim et al to make all of pari independent of 32/64 bit. Whatever reasons there were are surely no longer valid!

The reason is this:
and if one replaces E by a global integral model then all is well:
Of course it would be possible to have local_data() do this. At the very least, local data should give a more polite message.
