Description (last modified by )
Not only is laguerre(n,x)
not symbolic, a naive implementation is already 2x as fast at n=100
and 10x at n=1000
:
R.<x> = PolynomialRing(QQ, 'x') def lag(n): return R([binomial(n,k)*(1)^k/factorial(k) for k in xrange(n+1)])

Are the three separate cases in _pol_laguerre()
necessary? Couldn't one just do something like
R = PolynomialRing(QQ, 'x') pol = R([binomial(n,k)*(1)**k/factorial(k) for k in xrange(n+1)]) return pol(x)
no matter what x
is?

Well that is ZZ(1)
and cannot be expanded. I don't think we should return SR(1)
.

Why? Having similar calls to the same function return elements of different parents (or even values of different types) is rarely a good idea... That being said, I don't think we should return SR(1)
in all cases, but perhaps something like pushout(QQ, parent(x))
.

No, because (apart from speed reasons) the R([...]) construction is not available in all parents. However, when investigating this I found that the argument is coerced into SR
by the superclasses BuiltinFunction/Function
, so it must be unwrapped for the real parent. OTOH, for simplicity the branch with sum
would be a catchall. Let's see if going polynomial really is faster and, if not, do only summing for all parents.

Let's see if going polynomial really is faster and, if not, do only summing for all parents.
Here's the catch: Using R(...)
for polynomial creation makes for 5x speedup with L(1000,x)
and 10x with L(1000,x^2+x+1)
if x
is a polynomial generator vs. a symbol. OTOH, summing over monomials is faster with sum
and this is the only way to get a result for other rings.
I don't thing we should return
SR(1)
in all cases, but perhaps something likepushout(QQ, parent(x))
.
There is a problem: even if I return SR(ZZ(1))
, it gets converted back somewhere to Integer(1)
. This will have to be addressed in another ticket.

Squashed it all into one commit. Please note I'll rename OrthogonalPolynomial
to OrthogonalFunction
in the other ticket, so I depend on this being merged first. In the end the type problem required a one liner in #17953 and didn't require any forced result conversion to SR
.

I don't understand what you mean, sorry: I just tried the exact code that I suggested, and it works on all examples in the docstring, except that the result comes out in Horner form (which we could perhaps change if nothing else depends on it or somehow get or get around otherwise). What parents do you have in mind?
comment:26 followup: ↓ 29 Changed 7 years ago by
I also don't like that
sage: laguerre(3, polygen(QQ)).parent() Symbolic Ring
while for instance
sage: chebyshev_T(3, polygen(QQ)).parent() Univariate Polynomial Ring in x over Rational Field sage: pow(polygen(QQ), 3).parent() Univariate Polynomial Ring in x over Rational Field
comment:27 Changed 7 years ago by
Not a bug, but would be nice to have: the implementation doesn't seem to know that L(n, 0) = 1 and more generally L(n, α, 0) = binomial(n+α,n).

Equivalently to #16813 this behaviour can only be changed when we have #18832. EDIT: pow
is not a BuiltinFunction
and chebyshev_T
uses its own __call__
which is frowned upon. I would advise to not make this ticket dependent on the feature you suggest but to open a followup ticket.

 Status changed from needs_review to positive_review
As explained in one of my previous comments, I still don't understand why you don't like the idea of using QQ['x']
to compute the coefficients in _pol_laguerre()
(especially since #18282 has been merged and the problem with symbolic results being computed in Horner form no longer exists). But that's something that can be fixed later and this ticket has languished long enough already.
Thanks for working on it!
