Description (last modified by )
Check this:
sage: assume(x, 'even') sage: assume(x, 'real') sage: simplify((1)**x) 1 sage: x.is_integer() False
At least for real numbers (or even for complex numbers), an even number should be assumed to be an integer.
This is how it works in SymPy:
In [2]: x = Symbol('x', even=True) In [3]: x.is_integer Out[3]: True
Was supposed to be fixed in pynac0.7.4. This will also work and should be doctested here:
sage: sage: assume(x, 'even') ....: sage: assume(x, 'real') ....: sage: (1)^x 1 sage: (gamma(pi))^x gamma(pi)^x

Yes, Maxima knows. The inference logic however is in Pynac.

Note: See
TracTickets for help on using

I wasn't sure if I should report this as a defect or as an enhancement.
I'll add that if one tries
an error is raised:
so "someone" knows
x
is an integer...
