Description (last modified by )
The features of sage.combinat.cartesian_product.CartesianProduct
are now completely integrated into the category framework (see #18290). We remove all occurrences of CartesianProduct
to either cartesian_product
or itertools.product
. We deprecate the CartesianProduct
from sage.combinat.cartesian_product
.
In order to support all features of the old class we also:
 move the
__iter__
fromEnumeratedSets.CartesianProducts.ParentMethods
toSets.CartesianProducts.ParentMethods
 allows
cartesian_product
to be called withlist
,tuple
,set
,frozenset
 make
cartesian_product([])
works  introduce a function
some_tuples
insage.misc.misc
that is intensively used in the testing framework (and incidentally speed up some doc test)  refine the category of
Set([1,2,3])
to be finite  implement a (very naive)
random_element
forSet([1,2,3])
 implement a (naive) hash for
EnumeratedSetFromIterator

Hi Frédéric,
This was clearly not the way to fix composition_signed.py
. I removed this change from your commit. The rest of my commits should fix all issues with timed out testing (ie root system and padic) as well as the issue with tableau tuples.

I got into troubles. Combinatorial free modules are too laxist and you discover mistakes only very lately... in the following an element g
is built
sage: M = SchurTensorModule(QQ, 2, 2) sage: A = M._schur sage: f = M.basis()[(1,1)] sage: e = A.basis().values()[0] sage: g = e*f
but it is not valid in the sense that the keys do not correspond to the basis
sage: map(type, g.monomial_coefficients().keys()) [<type 'tuple'>] sage: g.parent().basis().keys() The cartesian product of ({1, 2}, {1, 2})
And hence you silently got
sage: g.to_vector() (0, 0, 0, 0)

All right, my solution is to not use cartesian_product

comment:38 Changed 5 years ago by
Here is a trace of the non trivial points we discussed privately with Vincent:
 enumerated_set_from_iterator: do we want instead to start filling
the cache in case it does not exist yet?
Nope. The cache might be *never* used in that class. And when it exists it is automatically filled since it is a lazy_list.
Oh, I had not noticed that, in EnumeratedSetFromIterator
, the existence
of the cache was decided upon construction. +1 then.
 Why moving iter from
EnumeratedSets.CartesianProducts
to
Sets.CartesianProducts
?Because otherwise there are some failing doctests. For example
Set([1,2,3])
is iterable but the following was not
cartesian_product([Set(1,2,3), Set([1,2,3])])
The fact that something is iterable does not necessarily mean that it belongs to
EnumeratedSet
. At least for me and the current classFiniteEnumeratedSet
, the enumerated set {1, 2, 3} is not equal to the enumerated set {3, 2, 1}. But they are equal as sets. And the set {1, 2, 3} should be iterable.I see your point. Yet this is annoying; where do we want to put the exact limit between
Set
andEnumeratedSet
? Where should, e.g. features like cardinality_from_iterator live?Hmm, I am not sure what to do here.
Right. My main motivation was to fix some doctests were previous code expected that the result was iterable. I do not exactly remind where it was.
Would it make sense to put it in Sets.Finite.CartesianProduct
, given
that it only works in the finite case?
The iterator is mandatory for cardinality_from_iterator, as it is not for Sets I would not put there.
Yeah, that's a good point.
 Do we want to systematically use itertools.product when in some
cases it's memory complexity is not as good as what we can do when we have iterables and not iterators as input?
Clearly not. But we are lacking something better. Once the list is expanded, you can not beat itertools. So in most cases, it is what you want since the size of factors is small compared to the size of the product.
 Sets 2034: is_empty:  don't catch all exceptions  is it about
parents not implementing is_empty, or about returning Unknown or raising an exception? In which case we should specify that exception and only catch that one.
done
CartesianProduct_iters
: Make the difference with cartesian_productmore explicit and add a link?
done
 Compositions:
return FiniteEnumeratedSet([self])
done
or make
cartesian_product()
returnFiniteEnumeratedSet([xxx])
orSet([xxx])
wherexxx
is the trivial tuple.This is not a good idea. The interface should be uniform when you do elt[i] to access the ith cartesian projection.
 partition_tuple: could there not be other combinations, like (())?
I did not found any. The empty tuple comes from the iteration with product.
 root_lattice_realization: is the conversion to
FiniteEnumeratedSet
still necessary?
C = cartesian_product([PositiveIntegers(), FiniteEnumeratedSet(Q.roots())])If so, should instead cartesian_product do more input tidying work?
Indeed, it is not. done.
 sets.family: maybe that test was about checking that things work
when a parent C is just in EnumeratedSets? but C.cardinality() == infinity
I reintroduced the test using
cartesian_product
instead ofCartesianProduct
... about
cartesian_product()
...So what about returning:
sage: from sage.sets.cartesian_product import CartesianProduct sage: CartesianProduct((), Sets().CartesianProducts()) The cartesian product of ()I vaguely remember we discussed this at some point, but don't remember what the outcome was. Of course if the user did not specify a category to
cartesian_product()
, we don't quite know what's the category he expects, butSets().CartesianProducts()
sounds like a reasonable starting point.I also remember that we discussed it. And indeed, for the sake of backward compatibility it needs to be done in that ticket... we had
sage: CartesianProduct() Cartesian product of sage: CartesianProduct().cardinality() 1 sage: CartesianProduct().an_element() []There is an other commit for that.
Thanks!
I made some minor review changes. Since the spacing commit for the tutorial was going the wrong way w.r.t. Python's convention, I allowed myself to revert it, and actually fix accordingly the surrounding lines (which I had written incorrectly a couple years ago). I hope that's ok.
Up to the final position of the __iter__
method which I am not yet
quite comfortable with, I am happy with the current state.
Anyone a point of view on this final sticking point?
Cheers,
Nicolas

There are of course other ways to fix it, but I found that it was the simplest. Using FiniteEnumeratedSet
instead of Set
in the tutorial seems unnatural to me since you want to keep it as simple as possible...

I tend to agree indeed; this would be annoying.
Maybe we should eventually make the distinction between sets, sets admitting an iterator, and sets with a distinguished enumeration.
For now, let's say that this will do, unless someone has some additional insight to provide.
Still, any thought about moving this feature to Sets.Finite.CartesianProducts??

Ideally, we would do a conditional inheritance based on the presence of __iter__
. I am not sure it is worth it to complicate anymore the various set categories with an IterableSets
.

Before it was in EnumeratedSets.CartesianProducts
and not EnumeratedSets.Finite.CartesianProducts
. So I tend to prefer the place it is. Of course, we should support better infinite factors.
