SymPy as optional symbolic method for manifolds

Description (last modified by )
The symbolic method used for manifolds and differentiable manifolds is "symbolic", the default in SageMath. In this ticket we introduce the use of SymPy? as an option when the Chart in the manifold is created.
At this point there is a dependence on Sympy ticket: "sympy to sage conversion : Abstract function." https://github.com/sympy/sympy/pull/12826

comment:17 Changed 17 months ago by
 Status changed from needs_review to needs_work
There are a few things that need fixing.
 Not all methods have docstrings/tests
 There are a number of tests where the line before is informational, but it needs a blankline, e.g.:
@@ 1641,6 +1641,19 @@ class TopologicalManifold(ManifoldSubset): F: U > R (x, y, z) > cos(y)*sin(x) + z + + Same tests with ``sympy``:: + sage: c_xyz.set_calculus_method('sympy') + sage: f = U.scalar_field(sin(x)*cos(y) + z, name='F'); f + Scalar field F on the Open subset U of the 3dimensional topological manifold M + sage: f.display() + F: U > R + (x, y, z) > cos(y)*sin(x) + z + + sage: type(f.coord_function(c_xyz).expr()) + <class 'sympy.core.add.Add'> + +
 IMO, you are too liberal with your blanklines spacing things out that makes the code a little uneven to read.

Thanks a lot for these improvements! I'll have a look at the code next week. Just a quick comment: as revealed by the patchbot, there are still some coverage issue, as well as a problem with sage/manifolds/chart_func.py
when building the documentation. There are also some doctest failures.

It is due to a different setting: in the previous version, the transition map xy_to_uv
was redefined, thereby causing a different handling of computations between SR
and sympy
. Note that the two expressions of a
are mathematically equivalent, which is satisfactory.

The above commit contains some polishing of the code (mostly layout) and improvements in the documentation. In particular, it restores the section the rubric Differences between chart fucntions and callable symbolic expressions of the previous class CoordFunctionSymb
.
Two questions:
 Why is there an argument
expression
in methodChartFunction._simplify
? I mean, ifexpression
is notself.expr(method=calc_method)
, why not calling directly thesimplify
method ofCalculusMethod
on it?
 In the docstring of
ChartFunctionRing._coerce_map_from_
, there is a TODO section with There is a problem with coercion with rationals. What is that?

At a particular moment during development I introduced it but I don't remember its functionality. As it is used only internally to ChartFunction
I will remove this argument.
 In the docstring of
ChartFunctionRing._coerce_map_from_
, there is a TODO section with There is a problem with coercion with rationals. What is that?
Look at this example:

._chart

The above commit fixes the computation of metric determinants when sympy is the calculus method. With it, most of the manifold tutorial passes with all calculations performed with SymPy: http://nbviewer.jupyter.org/github/sagemanifolds/SageManifolds/blob/master/Worksheets/v1.1/SM_tutorial_sympy.ipynb.
I have still to check a few extra things to complete the review.

With the above two commits, all the S^{2} notebook passes with SymPy:
http://nbviewer.jupyter.org/github/sagemanifolds/SageManifolds/blob/master/Worksheets/v1.1/SM_sphere_S2_sympy.ipynb
except for the 3D graphics of the tangent vector field to the loxodrome (commented cell 193); this is because Sage's matrix constructor (sage.matrix.constructor.prepare
) cannot take SymPy numbers (sympy.core.numbers.Float
) as elements: it generates the error
TypeError: unable to find a common ring for all elements
The need for such a matrix arises from a change of basis in some tangent space to the sphere, where all tensor components are expressed in terms of SymPy floats (because of the sampling for the drawing). Probably some workaround can be found.
Besides, I am still checking a few other things...

The above commit mostly improves the documentation. In particular, it adds the missing item calc_method
in some INPUT
sections and slightly improves some doctests.

On my 3manifold, I observe the following timings:
# One thread takes 317s in Sage, 9311s in SymPy?\\
nabla = g.connection()
# One thread takes 95s in Sage, 1134s in SymPy?\\
LBpsi = nabla(nabla(psi).up(g)).trace(); LBpsi;
# One thread takes 872s in Sage, 36221s in SymPy?\\
Ric_g = g.ricci_scalar()
# One thread takes 482s in Sage, 24220s in SymPy?\\
Cot_g = g.cotton(); Cot_g.parent(); Cot_g.display()
I suggest we take a deeper look after getting the functionality released.

I also noticed that SymPy is slower than Sage's symbolic (in particular in the tutorial and S^{2} notebooks mentioned in comment:56 and comment:61).

I agree.

The above attached notebook shows a failure when run with the multiprocessing directive
Parallelism().set(nproc=4)
while computing the LaplaceBeltrami operator acting on a scalar field
nabla(nabla(psi).up(g)).trace()
defined on a manifold having the 'sympy' option set
M.set_calculus_method('sympy')
When multiprocessing is turned off (nproc=1), this notebook completes without error.
I will try to find a quickerrunning example.

I've finished to review the ticket. Marco, Ralf or Richard, if you agree with my changes, please set the ticket back to positive review (the parallelization issue raised in comment:68, if confirmed, could be dealt with in a separate ticket).
Thank you very much Marco for your work on this; it will be great to have the SymPy functionaly for manifolds in Sage 8.1!

1) Please remove redundant word "curve" which occurs within the documentation of curve.py and integrated_curve.py. 2) Are we letting the TODO's remain undone for this release? 3) In vectorfield_module.py, two occurrences each of "from the North pole" and "from the South pole" were changed to "from North pole" and "from South pole", respectively, resulting in nonstandard English.

Done in the above commit.
2) Are we letting the TODO's remain undone for this release?
IMHO yes, because they require substantial work and do not hinder the functionality implemented here.
3) In vectorfield_module.py, two occurrences each of "from the North pole" and "from the South pole" were changed to "from North pole" and "from South pole", respectively, resulting in nonstandard English.
Corrected in the above commit; thanks.
Besides the above typos, the last commit restores the trig simplification that was commented out in simplify_chain_generic_sympy
and simplify_chain_real_sympy
. On general grounds, the SymPy simplification chain should be improved in another ticket.

I have just uploaded another copy, with a new name, after stripping the output and a few commentedout cells. It should open with the standard upload link in the Sage Notebook. It should run as is, and it should fail after changing Parallelism().set(nproc=1) from 1 to 2.

See the following bug report, in case https://groups.google.com/d/msg/sagedevel/3sN7gVTdNuY/U9v70LoDAwAJ

Certainly by lack of knowledge... Thanks for your feedback! Can you elaborate a little bit though? Do you mean it is bad to use expr._maxima_()
for expr
in SR
?

This uses sage/interfaces/interfaces.py
which is pexpect. The libmaxima functionality can be found in sage/interfaces/maxima_lib.py
.

I wonder why _maxima_lib_()
is used only in few places in the library code, as opposed to _maxima_()
. Should one open a ticket to modify all these places?
Certainly maxima_lib
is more robust and ought to be faster on large data of certain type, at least. It runs Maxima in a Python extension module rather than talks to Maxima run as an external process.

From what you say about maxima_lib
, I would say yes. In particular, _maxima_()
is used in various methods of sage.symbolic.expression.Expression
, like simplify()
, simplify_factorial()
and simplify_trig()
.

comment:100 Changed 15 months ago by
In the code at https://groups.google.com/d/msg/sagedevel/3sN7gVTdNuY/U9v70LoDAwAJ, if we change the computation method from 'SR' to 'sympy', the same Maxima/ECL bug occurs when computing g.inverse(), where 'g' is the Riemannian metric. Why does the code call the same simplification logic, disregarding the computation method setting as 'sympy'?
