Patchbot shows doctest fails.

Ah, yes. Maybe I need another way of finding out whether a parent is a finite field; is_finite
seems to throw NotImplementedError
s here. That would fix the failures in schemes/elliptic_curves/heigth.py
.
However, I'm not sure about the segmentation fault in expression.pyx
, calling
sage: (Mod(2,7)*x^2 + Mod(2,7))^7
from sage gdb
prints the line
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault. GiNaC::add::integer_content (this=0x3019c20) at normal.cpp:325
It seems that something requires the expression to be a real in order for the power to work. This is bad.
Maybe I'll investigate later; have to go now.

The last commit fixes the doctest failures in schemes/elliptic_curves/height.py
, but not the segmentation fault. Unfortunately, the reason for that lies in pynaca fix can be found here: https://github.com/pynac/pynac/pull/160.

Just to share some related fun with quotients of the integer ring
sage: cos(Zmod(7)(3)) 0.989992496600445 sage: cos(Zmod(10)(3)) 1 sage: cos(Zmod(15)(3)) 1

With pynac0.6.4 (#20134):
sage: cos(Zmod(7)(3)) 0.989992496600445 sage: cos(Zmod(10)(3)) 0.989992496600445 sage: cos(Zmod(15)(3)) 0.989992496600445
In an ideal world, this would probably raise a ValueError
or so. This way it is at least consistent.

I doubt it is such a good idea to specialcase finite fields here. Why does py_imag
default to returning True
in the first place?! And as for returning results based on the parent of the wrapped object, I'd be tempted to base the logic on whether the parent has coercions to things like {Real,Complex}Field(mpfr_prec_min())
instead of having explicit lists of “real” and “nonreal” parents.

Replying to mmezzarobba:

py_imag
default to returningTrue
in the first place?!
This is because if in doubt py_is_real
asks py_imag
whether the imaginary part is 0which is the case for these elements, because if in doubt, py_imag
assumes that the imaginary part is 0. ;)
And as for returning results based on the parent of the wrapped object, I'd be tempted to base the logic on whether the parent has coercions to things like
{Real,Complex}Field(mpfr_prec_min())
instead of having explicit lists of “real” and “nonreal” parents.
This might be an approach worth pursuing.

 Dependencies changed from pynac0.6.5 to #20312
Now (with #20312) both flags are false. Can this case be considered to be fixed? Then just a doctest would be needed here.

In any case, this produces a merge conflict.

Needs work on a duplicate request!?

sorry, did not see the sageduplicate/invalid/wontfix milestone.
comment:17 Changed 4 years ago by
I see that the problem is fixed; can you tell me where the doctest is? I did not see it at first glance.
comment:18 Changed 4 years ago by
It was added with https://github.com/sagemath/sage/commit/11e2b784 (bottom)
