18640,Topological manifolds: scalar fields,egourgoulhon,egourgoulhon,"This ticket implements scalar fields on topological manifolds. This is a follow up of ticket #18529 within the [http://sagemanifolds.obspm.fr/ SageManifolds project]. See the metaticket #18528 for an overview.
By ''scalar field'', it is meant a continuous map f: M --> K, where K is a topological field and M a topological manifold over K.
This ticket implements the following Python classes:
- `CoordFunction`: abstract base class for coordinate functions, i.e. functions
V\subset K^n^ --> K, where V is some chart codomain and n=dim(M)
- `CoordFunctionSymb`: symbolic coordinate functions
- `MultiCoordFunction`: functions V\subset K^n^ --> K^m^, where V is some chart codomain and m some
positive integer
- `ScalarFieldAlgebra`: set C^0^(M) of scalar fields M --> K as a commutative algebra over K
(Parent class)
- `ScalarField`: scalar field M --> K (Element class)
- `ExpressionNice`: a subclass of `sage.symbolic.expression.Expression` with enhanced display of callable symbolic expressions
Internally, `ScalarField`'s are described by their coordinate representations in various charts, which are implemented as a dictionary of `CoordFunction`'s, with the charts as keys.
At the moment, there is only one concrete class for coordinate functions: `CoordFunctionSymb` (functions described by symbolic expressions of the coordinates), but in the future there should be numerical coordinate functions (hence the abstract base class `CoordFunction`).
