### Description

it would be nice to have Remez algorithm implemented in Sage. It provides an optimal approximation of a function by a polynomial of given degree on an interval [a,b]. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remez_algorithm.

Marc, I just did `git pull`

from Sage 7.4, then `git branch -r`

does not show any branch with sollya in it.

Replying to zimmerma:

Sorry if I wasn't clear: *PythonSollya?* has some support for *Sage*, not conversely.

Hi Paul,

Yes, that would be nice to have. But note that the (experimental) Python-Sollya interface available at https://scm.gforge.inria.fr/anonscm/git/metalibm/pythonsollya.git has (even more experimental) Sage support (on the

`cythonsollya-mm`

branch) that you can already use to call Sollya's minimax approximation routines on functions implemented using Sage.
