Description (last modified by ppurka)

This is a follow up to #16439.

  1. The functions atan, acos, asin give TypeError on Python complex input.
  1. The output of trigonometric functions are inconsistent depending on whether complex or CDF or CC is used as the input type.

From #16439 discussion by @kcrisman:

Just one point - almost certainly some of those digits are 'extra' from Python. Compare (after this):

sage: sec(1.+i)
0.498337030555187 + 0.591083841721045*I
sage: sec(complex(1,1))
sage: sec(CDF(complex(1,1)))
0.498337030555 + 0.591083841721*I


Here is something else I don't know what to do with.

sage: arccot(1.+i)
arccot(1.00000000000000 + 1.00000000000000*I)  # in SR
sage: cot(1.+i)
0.217621561854403 - 0.868014142895925*I

One would think this should be the same type of output.

That said, SR is useful for some other cases of exact input.

I'm wondering whether we want to try to fix all of this here, though.

comment:2 Changed 7 years ago by vbraun_spam

  • Milestone changed from sage-6.3 to sage-6.4

comment:3 Changed 7 years ago by rws

  • Summary changed from Fix output of trigonometric functions for complex input to unify output of trigonometric functions for complex input

Everything except point 2 seems to be fixed so I'm changing the title.

sage: atan(complex(1,1))
sage: acos(complex(1,1))
sage: asin(complex(1,1))
sage: asin(CDF(complex(1,1)))
0.6662394324925152 + 1.0612750619050357*I
sage: asin(CC(complex(1,1)))
0.666239432492515 + 1.06127506190504*I
sage: arccot(1.+i)
arccot(i + 1.00000000000000)
sage: cot(1.+i)
cot(i + 1.00000000000000)

  • Milestone changed from sage-6.4 to sage-duplicate/invalid/wontfix
  • Status changed from new to needs_review

I get now:

sage: arccot(1.+i)
0.553574358897045 - 0.402359478108525*I
sage: cot(1.+i)
0.217621561854403 - 0.868014142895925*I

So this seems fixed.
