Description (last modified by )
Minimal case:
sage: (I*x).subs(I==0) I*x
Originally:
the substitute
command does not work with I
:
sage: f = sin(x*I)+I*x^2+cos(exp(I)) sage: f.subs(I=0) I*x^2 + cos(e^I) + sin(I*x)

thank you. Should I open a new ticket for this bug? Or simply change the ticket description?

Done. I think I will restrict the numerics that can be replaced (not 0
nor 1
).

btw it is strange that you get I*sinh(x)
since with Sage 8.0 I get sin(I*x)
, i.e., this term is unchanged.

sorry we edited the ticket simultaneously and I discarded your edit in the title and maybe in the description. I've put the title back to ===
but I'm not sure about the description.

Yeah that was an enhancement in a recent Pynac (#23820).

Why should (I*x).subs(I=0)
work? This I
isn't a variable, it's a complex number. Would you expect (2*x).subs({2:3})
to give (3*x)
?

Well, subs
was always about termwise substitution. Maxima does it too:
(%i3) subst(%i=y,%i*x); (%o3) x y (%i4) subst(2=y,2*x); (%o4) x y

This will be available with pynac-0.7.18 and should be doctested here.

The original case works now, the minimal case I*x
not, so there is an inconsistency to resolve.
The documentation:
Substitute with keyword arguments (works only with symbols):
. For youI
is a symbol but for Pynac it's numeric. Just use dictionary or relational syntax:As you can see the
I
insidecos(e^I)
is now replaced. I agree that the otherI
s not being replaced is a bug. The bug is independent of which numeric is to be substituted:
