Description (last modified by rws)

This shows an equivalent to SymPy's Piecewise is missing in Sage:

        sage: _ = var('y, z')
        sage: (x^y - z).integrate(y)
        -y*z + x^y/log(x)
        sage: (x^y - z).integrate(y, algorithm="sympy")  # see Trac #14694
        Traceback (most recent call last):
        AttributeError: 'ExprCondPair' object has no attribute '_sage_'

>>> integrate(x**y-z,y)
       ⎛⎧  y     for log(x) = 0⎞
       ⎜⎪                      ⎟
       ⎜⎪   y                  ⎟
 -y⋅z + ⎜⎨  x                   ⎟
       ⎜⎪──────    otherwise   ⎟
       ⎜⎪log(x)                ⎟
       ⎝⎩                      ⎠

Piecewise in SymPy is a held function of ExprCondPair arguments. It would be a superset of our piecewise. The name should not be confusable, a suggestion is if_then([(log(x)==0, y), (x^y/log(x), 1)]).

When it is implemented a SymPy patch should be done for the _sage_ method.

EDIT: Maxima 5.38.1 returns a similar function for some integrals.

Does this solve the issue in the ticket description? If so, I feel like we should add that as a doctest. If not, then you can set a positive review and post in a comment here which ticket will actually address it.

Right. #23923 depends on this.
