I ended up using your branch and resolve the conflict, so this depends on #22937.

7df31d9  22989: Remaining issues with symbolic product

comment:9 Changed 4 years ago by
Found a small oversight in latex functions for Function_sum and Function_prod :
sage: latex(sum(sin(X(j)),j,1,p)) {\sum_{j=1}^{p} sin(X(j))}
whereas what is sought is something along the lines of {\sum_{j=1}^{p} \sin\left(X\left(j\right)\right)
}
Patch suggestion :
charpent@asus16ec:/usr/local/sage8$ git diff diff git a/src/sage/functions/other.py b/src/sage/functions/other.py index aaee96cf87..aafbb697e8 100644  a/src/sage/functions/other.py +++ b/src/sage/functions/other.py @@ 2617,7 +2617,8 @@ class Function_sum(BuiltinFunction): sage: latex(ssum(x^2, x, 1, 10)) {\sum_{x=1}^{10} x^2} """  return r"{{\sum_{{{}={}}}^{{{}}} {}}}".format(var, a, b, x) + return r"{{\sum_{{{}={}}}^{{{}}} {}}}".format(latex(var), latex(a), + latex(b), latex(x)) symbolic_sum = Function_sum() @@ 2664,6 +2665,7 @@ class Function_prod(BuiltinFunction): sage: latex(sprod(x^2, x, 1, 10)) {\prod_{x=1}^{10} x^2} """  return r"{{\prod_{{{}={}}}^{{{}}} {}}}".format(var, a, b, x) + return r"{{\prod_{{{}={}}}^{{{}}} {}}}".format(latex(var), latex(a), + latex(b), latex(x)) symbolic_product = Function_prod()
Simpleminded but correct (I think).

Yet another note :
sum()
expands its first argument. I'm not sure that this is pertinent. Compare :
sage: sum((X(j)+Y(j))^2,j,1,p) sum(X(j)^2 + 2*X(j)*Y(j) + Y(j)^2, j, 1, p) sage: maxima("sum(((X(j)+Y(j))^2),j,1,p)").sage() sum((X(j) + Y(j))^2, j, 1, p)
I have implemented (in a private branch), an "expand" option controlling if distribute()
should expand its first argument (default) or not (might come in handy in some situations). This allows :
sage: maxima("sum((X(j)+Y(j))^2+Z(j),j,1,p)").sage().distribute() sum(X(j)^2, j, 1, p) + sum(2*X(j)*Y(j), j, 1, p) + sum(Y(j)^2, j, 1, p) + sum(Z(j), j, 1, p) sage: maxima("sum((X(j)+Y(j))^2+Z(j),j,1,p)").sage().distribute(expand=False) sum((X(j) + Y(j))^2, j, 1, p) + sum(Z(j), j, 1, p)
But this currently works only from sum expressions cast from Maxima ; Sagebuilt sums get expanded volens nolens, as seen above, and the resulting expansions can't be factorized back by factor()
.
Possible solution : an "expand" keyword argument to sum (default=True) controlling the expansion ? What do you think ?
The same goes, of course, for products.

This has been rebased over 8.0.beta7 (which incorporates #22937). Three fixes :
 Latex generation for symbolic sums and products.
 A
.prod()
method for symbolic expressions.  A public
product()
function (I wanted to nmae itprod
, but this clashes irreconciliably with the existingprod
function for lists and others. I you see how to implement this, you're welcome...).
Passes ptestlong
with the usual transient sage t long src/sage/homology/simplicial_complex.py
failure, which is transient.

As of the day before yesterday, the patchbots started giving an error in building g2fx that I don't understand a bit...
Ca some kind sould enlighten me on the possible causes (and possible remedies ?)

some comments:
 the
(optional) use Giac
should be justuse Giac
'mathematica'
 (optional) use Mathematica is missing
 add a SEEALSO block pointing to the new
symbolic_product
in the top levelprod
(misc_c.pyx
)
if you don't mind, i can add these minor things myself and review asap.

Replying to mforets:
some comments:

Indeed : giac is now standard...
'mathematica'
 (optional) use Mathematica is missing
Indeed.
But I'm not so sure : the Mathematica interface has other (serious) problems, that can be triggered also in sums and products. This, IMHO, is a distinct problem, and should be fixed by someone knowing what it does with Mathematica (I don't...).
Is it reasonable do document a (good) way to use a (flaky) interface ? I let you judge...

Right...

Please go ahead ! Do you need me to review your review ?

done. for mathematica
unfortunately i also don't have it so cannot test, but i do think it's good to mention as a valid option.
i'm having an issue with the hold
option:
sage: k, n = var('k, n') sage: sage.calculus.calculus.symbolic_product(k, k, 1, n) factorial(n) sage: sage.calculus.calculus.symbolic_product(k, k, 1, n, hold=True)  ImportError Traceback (most recent call last) <ipythoninput31fc22673b8c7> in <module>() > 1 sage.calculus.calculus.symbolic_product(k, k, Integer(1), n, hold=True) /Users/forets/sagesrc/sage/local/lib/python2.7/sitepackages/sage/calculus/calculus.pyc in symbolic_product(expression, v, a, b, algorithm, hold) 868 869 if hold == True: > 870 from sage.functions.other import symbolic_prod as sprod 871 return sprod(expression, v, a, b) 872 ImportError: cannot import name symbolic_prod
let me fix it by changing symbolic_prod
to symbolic_product
in line 870

We are suppose to be supporting an interface to Mathematica, so I think we should document it. Doing so will both increase our user base and help find bugs from people using said interface.
