Description (last modified by )
Maxima fails to regard some expressions as equal:
sage: value_1 = 1-golden_ratio sage: value_2 = -golden_ratio^(-1) sage: bool(value_1 == value_2) True sage: bool(value_1^x != value_2^x) True
while
sage: bool(((x+1)^2)^y == (x^2+2*x+1)^y) True sage: sin(0,hold=True)^x == 0^x sin(0)^x == 0^x sage: bool(sin(0,hold=True)^x == 0^x) True
Previous description:
I tried to define Fibonacci sequence using golden ratio in two ways, using values:
sage: value_1 = 1-golden_ratio sage: value_2 = -golden_ratio^(-1) sage: bool(value_1 == value_2) true
(gives true, so two definitions, F1 and F2 below should be equal, even though they are not according to Sage)
sage: F1(k) = (golden_ratio^k-(value_1)^(k))/sqrt(5) sage: F2(k) = (golden_ratio^k-(value_2)^(k))/sqrt(5) sage: bool(F1(k) != F2(k)) true
When simplified everything seems to be equal at least for first 10 or 1000 elements:
sage: [(F1(j)-F2(j)).full_simplify() for j in range(10)] [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]
Anyway, now to the error: limit for F1 gives wrong result:
sage: limit(F1(k+1)/F1(k), k=oo) 0
and for F2 works OK:
sage: limit(F2(k+1)/F2(k), k=oo) 1/2*sqrt(5) + 1/2
I've tested it with Sage 5.12 and 5.11, with same result. This can be as simple as some thing with how golden ratio is handled, or something far more involved maybe?

I don't know when it happened, but in 6.4.1 the limit works:
but the comparison
is still wrong. Slightly minified example:
