Description (last modified by )
This ticket implements tangent vectors and tangent spaces on differentiable manifolds. This is a followup of #18843 within the SageManifolds project (see the metaticket #18528 for an overview). As in #18843, the nondiscrete topological field K over which the differentiable manifold is defined is generic, although in most applications, K=R or K=C.
This ticket implements the following Python classes:
 the parent class
TangentSpace
for tangent spaces to a differentiable manifold  the element class
TangentVector
for tangent vectors to a differentiable manifold
It also implements
 the method
at()
in tensor field classes (introduced in #18843) to take the value of a given tensor field (in particular a vector field) at a given point; the methodat()
is implemented for vector frames and coframes as well.  the method
plot()
in classVectorField
, to get some graphical representations of vector fields  the methods
differential()
,differential_functions()
andjacobian_matrix()
to the classDiffMap
introduced in #18783 (differential of a map between differentiable manifolds at a given point).

Okay, I've made it through this one. Mostly it is documentation format changes, but the exception:
For plotting, I used the @options
for scale
and max_range
as these seemed like something a user might want to not have to pass every single time (you change change their default with v.plot.options
). From the user perspective, nothing really changes unless you explicitly set said default value.
So if you agree with my changes, then you can set a positive review.

Thank you so much for the review!
In the first commit above (23eb9d8), I've corrected a doctest error and fixed some documentation issue revealed by the patchbot.
In the second commit (b4a4530), I've added sphinx directives to render the 3D plots in the documentation of VectorField.plot
(as well as in RealChart.plot
), on the same footing as what is now done in the "3D Graphics" section of the reference manual.
Thanks for the addition of @options
to VectorField.plot
; I've added color
to these options, to be consistent with what is done in RealChart.plot
. I've also added some documentation about the use of v.plot.options
.
A question: in the keyword arguments of VectorField.plot
, you have changed nb_values
to number_values
, but it is still nb_values
in RealChart.plot
. For consistency, both plot methods should use the same name. It seems that nb is not a standard English abbreviation for number, is it? (I find number_values
a little bit long, especially that we don't have the TAB completion to type the options).

Not to my knowledge. The standard abbreviation is "no." (with a period) but "num" has become standard (at least in the programming world), but IMO the verbosity is better. However, you can do tab completion for explicit arguments.

OK, so let use number_values
everywhere. I am going to change it in RealChart.plot
.
