Description (last modified by )
sage: CIF(cos(3/2))  TypeError Traceback (most recent call last) <ipythoninput314eae9038f0b3> in <module>() > 1 CIF(cos(Integer(3)/Integer(2))) /usr/local/src/sageconfig/local/lib/python2.7/sitepackages/sage/rings/complex_interval_field.pyc in __call__(self, x, im) 378 379 try: > 380 return x._complex_mpfi_( self ) 381 except AttributeError: 382 pass /usr/local/src/sageconfig/local/lib/python2.7/sitepackages/sage/symbolic/expression.so in sage.symbolic.expression.Expression._complex_mpfi_ (build/cythonized/sage/symbolic/expression.cpp:8043)()
The reason that this fails is:
sage: CIF(3/2).cos()  AttributeError Traceback (most recent call last) <ipythoninput1396dae572cb36> in <module>() > 1 CIF(Integer(3)/Integer(2)).cos() /usr/local/src/sageconfig/local/lib/python2.7/sitepackages/sage/structure/element.so in sage.structure.element.Element.__getattr__ (build/cythonized/sage/structure/element.c:4068)() /usr/local/src/sageconfig/local/lib/python2.7/sitepackages/sage/structure/misc.so in sage.structure.misc.getattr_from_other_class (build/cythonized/sage/structure/misc.c:1631)() AttributeError: 'sage.rings.complex_interval.ComplexIntervalFieldElement' object has no attribute 'cos'
This problem was also encoutered on this ask thread.

Replying to tmonteil:
Are you working on this ?
No.
Is a solution involving the use of the (already defined)
.exp()
method acceptable on the short term (it may not lead to the thinest possible intervals), or do you think about some more accurate way of writing those ?
I think it's acceptable to rely on exp()
but instead, I would rather use the structure of the exp()
method: completely reduce the computation to a computation in RIF
.
comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by
For best accuracy, one should use cos(a+bi) = cos(a)*cosh(b) + sin(a)*sinh(b)*i
and sin(a+bi) = sin(a)*cosh(b) + cos(a)*sinh(b)*i
(if I got those formulas right).
There's a mpfi_sin_cos
but it looks like there's no mpfi_sinh_cosh
yet.

This is also responsible for

This is not the fastest and safest way possible (the obtained interval is sometimes too large). But at least, the given implementation has the feature that trigonometric functions preserve real and imaginary axes...

comment:9 followup: ↓ 10 Changed 5 years ago by
I don't like the added complexity of having 3 branches in every function. Why not just use the generic case everywhere?

The main reason is to avoid numerical noise (I want the cosine of a real number to be a real number). You have
sage: a = CIF(2,0) sage: I = CIF.gen() sage: ((I*a).exp() + (I*a).exp()) / 2 0.4161468365471424? + 0.?e16*I
It should be fine to remove the imaginary branch, but then it would be less precise
sage: a = CIF(0,2) sage: b1 = CIF(0, a.imag().cosh()) sage: b1.diameter() 1.33393183261575e16 sage: b2 = ((I*a).exp() + (I*a).exp()) / 2 sage: b2.diameter() 2.36079803558624e16

For the sine and cosine, you can use the formula at the end of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trigonometric_functions#Relationship_to_exponential_function_and_complex_numbers which computes the real and imaginary part separately. Assuming that sinh(0) = 0 exactly, this formula will not introduce a fake imaginary part.

New implementation using other trigonometric identities (and much faster).
For tan
and tanh
this is certainly not the best possible.

You're not actually supposed to do this:
from sage.ext.interrupt cimport sig_on, sig_off
The official way is still include "sage/ext/interrupt.pxi"
(and this will even become mandatory after #18027)
comment:15 Changed 5 years ago by
I like the new code. However, a few comments:
 move the
# cos(x + yi) = ...
comments inside the docstring as anALGORITHM:
block.  move the
mpfi_init2()
andmpfi_clear()
outside thesig_on()
/sig_off()
(it's not really wrong to put them inside, but it's certainly safer outside)

comment:19 followup: ↓ 20 Changed 5 years ago by
Thanks for the review.
Just one related question. With the current code, if a KeyboardInterrupt
happens in between the sig_on/sig_off
block, then the code mpfi_clear(tmp)
will never get called and hence the memory allocated to tmp
will not be freed. Is there a clean solution for that?
