Description (last modified by rws)

We should provide a detailed interface for symbolic relations:

  • bool(rel) equivalent to (not)(LHS-RHS).is_trivial_zero() for ==,!= ; and for <, >, <=, >= the result follows alpha order of lhs and rhs
  • satisfiable(rel) returning (Yes,example)/No/Undecidable/NotImplemented
  • solve(rel) in case of satisfiable=Yes returning the full solution set
  • is(rel) attempting simplification/proof, returning True/False, throwing NotImplementedError
  • ex.is_zero(simplify=False) (default) calling the fast bool(ex==0) (#24992)
  • ex.is_zero(simplify=True) attempting simplification/proof (#24992)
  • prove(rel) showing more or less steps of simplification (which is out of reach for the moment)


  • #19040: to take satisfiability/truth functionality out of ex.__nonzero__ into resp. member functions
  • #19000: SMT-solver is needed for dedicated satisfiable()
