Thanks for having a look.
I commented the code because it was never used because of the coercion system (see the __call__
of Parent). It was the case even before my patch. I think the gain is minor but the fact is that it was unused. I will remove it.
Here are some timings, the improvement is somwhere around x10.
without
sage: K=QuadraticField(2) sage: q = 12 sage: %timeit K(q) 100000 loops, best of 3: 10.3 us per loop sage: g = K.gen() sage: %timeit q*g 1000000 loops, best of 3: 1.66 us per loop sage: %timeit q+g 100000 loops, best of 3: 13.2 us per loop
with
sage: K=QuadraticField(2) sage: q = 12 sage: %timeit K(q) 1000000 loops, best of 3: 660 ns per loop sage: g = K.gen() sage: %timeit q*g 1000000 loops, best of 3: 1.74 us per loop sage: %timeit q+g 100000 loops, best of 3: 2.76 us per loop
There is no difference for the multiplication because the methods _lmul_
or _rmul_
are called directly and there is not a call to the coercion morphism.

Looks good to me...

There is a block of commented-out code under
If its not used then delete it, don't leave commented-out chunks of code lying around. Is there a performance difference with this branch removed? It looks like an attempt to deliberately circumvent the morphism to me.
