Description (last modified by )
The symbolic product is currently broken in Sage :
- It cannot be created in Sage :
sage: var("j,p", domain="integer") sage: X,Y=function("X,Y") sage: prod(X(j),j,1,p) --------------------------------------------------------------------------- TypeError Traceback (most recent call last) <ipython-input-5-85e69544cbe9> in <module>() ----> 1 prod(X(j),j,Integer(1),p) /usr/local/sage-8/src/sage/misc/misc_c.pyx in sage.misc.misc_c.prod (/usr/local/sage-8/src/build/cythonized/sage/misc/misc_c.c:1596)() 69 70 ---> 71 def prod(x, z=None, Py_ssize_t recursion_cutoff=5): 72 """ 73 Return the product of the elements in the list x. TypeError: prod() takes at most 3 positional arguments (4 given) sage: product(X(j),j,1,p) --------------------------------------------------------------------------- NameError Traceback (most recent call last) <ipython-input-6-4d04d74c7489> in <module>() ----> 1 product(X(j),j,Integer(1),p) NameError: name 'product' is not defined
- Creatnig it it by casting a Maxima expression via the library interface gives nonsense :
sage: X(j).maxima_methods().prod(j,1,p) X(j)^p sage: X(j).maxima_methods().product(j,1,p) X(j)^p
(Note : similar nonsense also happens with sums :
sage: X(j).maxima_methods().sum(j,1,p) p*X(j)
)
- But something (what ?) can be created via the Maxima
pexpect
interface :sage: maxima("prod(X(j),j,1,p)").sage().log().log_expand() sum(log(X(j)), j, 1, p)
The part of the problem bound to the Maxima library interface is the object of #22920. The present ticket aims at creating a Sage function/method correctly creating a symbolic product object.

Duplicate of #17505.
Wups ! You're right. I oversaw it (and #17502 and #20179) when consulting the symbolics page.
Curiosity : why setting the status to neeeds_review
?

Closing tickets in the sage-duplicate/invalid/wontfix module with positive_review (i.e. someone has confirmed they should be closed).
