 Report Upstream set to N/A
 Status changed from new to needs_work
I've attached essentially the code I wrote during with Sage Days 24 with some additions. Features include:
 Representation of PFQs as symbolic functions (with automatic simplification) and in alwaysunevaluated form
 Numerical evaluation (wrapping mpmath)
 Evaluation in terms of elementary functions in some simple cases
Important missing features include:
 Rewriting symbolic sums as PFQs
 Evaluation in terms of polygamma functions
 Various transformations permitting closedform evaluation in special cases
The patch includes symbolic versions of Bessel functions, which can be expanded as PFQs. This obviously needs to be merged with the existing Bessel function classes.
The main remaining issue is to handle multivariate symbolic functions properly (the current approach in Function_PFQ is something of a hack). Also, in the present patch, there are two PFQ classes. This is partially due to limitations/awkwardness of the symbolic function class, but regardless of whether necessary, it may be desirable to have a separate "backend" representation for hypergeometric functions that doesn't need to be concerned with automatic evaluation, numerical conversions, etc. I'm not sure what's the best way to organize it all.

See also #9908, which is at least related (we need to translate Maxima hg functions).
Also, I think that we already have a lot of Bessel functions implemented, though they are not yet symbolic.

comment:8 Changed 10 years ago by
Having played around with this some, I think it'll be pretty straightforward to get in.. *after* we have Burcin's ticket allowing numerical_approx to take more general kwargs. If it weren't for the need to maintain backward compatibility with the algorithm kwarg for the old bessel functions, life would be easier.
I have a halffunctional wrapper which monkeypatches things to sort of get them to work, but once that patch gets in it becomes much simpler. So I think this should stay in a holding pattern until we get that one in.

If it weren't for the need to maintain backward compatibility with the algorithm kwarg for the old bessel functions, life would be easier.
Since #4102 is nearly finished, and has at least sort of dealt with this issue, perhaps one can just ignore that part of the Bessel issue. Instead, one could just add the _expand_hyper
methods to the stuff there. I do like the idea here and it would be a shame for it to bit rot further...

Plotting is now working fine (with the approach from #14801, thanks Volker!), except for getting deprecation warnings about using unnamed function parameters, which I have not been able to debug. Does anyone know how to fix this?
Another strange doctest failure is the one in _fast_callable_
; when I run it from interactive mode I get {CommutativeRings.element_class}(v_0)
, but the doctest returns {Fields.element_class}(v_0)
. Why is that?
Other than that the patch should be ready for review.

Three of the remaining doctest errors come from:
sage: f=fast_callable(hypergeometric([x], [], 2),domain=CDF,expect_one_var=True) sage: f(8) /home/ralf/sage/local/lib/python2.7/sitepackages/IPython/core/interactiveshell.py:2834: DeprecationWarning: Substitution using functioncall syntax and unnamed arguments is deprecated and will be removed from a future release of Sage; you can use named arguments instead, like EXPR(x=..., y=...) See http://trac.sagemath.org/5930 for details. exec code_obj in self.user_global_ns, self.user_ns 1.0 sage: f(x=8)  TypeError Traceback (most recent call last) <ipythoninput3499d03e2f57c> in <module>() > 1 f(x=Integer(8)) TypeError: __call__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'x'
The deprecation warning is triggered in plot()
and complex_plot()
with hypergeometric argument. I'm unsure where exactly the problem is. At the least fast_callable()
should behave consistently when given a named parameter, and if there is a problem in hypergeometric
, fast_callable()
should give the right warning. So, maybe a separate ticket for this is necessary.

Oops, sorry.

fast_callable

exp_integral_e()
is a BuiltinFunction
too, and needs two parameters but
sage: f=fast_callable(exp_integral_e(x,1),domain=CDF,expect_one_var=True) sage: f(8) 0.0452114820619 sage: f=fast_callable(hypergeometric([x], [], y),domain=CDF,vars=[x,y]) sage: f(8,9) 5.96046447754e08 sage: f=fast_callable(hypergeometric([x], [], 2),domain=CDF,vars=[x]) sage: f(8) 1.0
so I changed
f = fast_callable(f, domain=CDF, expect_one_var=TRUE)
to
f = fast_callable(f, domain=CDF, vars=[x])
in complex_plot()
. Now the one var case works but not the two etc. So it seems the handling of expect_one_var
in fast_callable()
is wrong, as I already said.
comment:29 Changed 8 years ago by
Forget all what I wrote. The deprecation warning is only printed once per session, which makes my conclusions arbitrary.

What's certain is that Wrapper_cdf.__call__()
gets the same arguments as with other working examples but that SR._call_element_()
gets called where the deprecation warning happens while with exp_integral_e(x,1)
its _eval_()
is called directly.
Another strange doctest failure is the one in
_fast_callable_
; when I run it from interactive mode I get{CommutativeRings.element_class}(v_0)
, but the doctest returns{Fields.element_class}(v_0)
. Why is that?
Interestingly if use h=exp_integral_e(x,1)
in the same doctest, I get
sage: h._fast_callable_(etb) {exp_integral_e}(v_0, 1)
So why is it not hypergeometric(None, None, v_0)
or similar in the doctest?

comment:35 followups: ↓ 49 ↓ 50 Changed 8 years ago by
Excellent work! I wasn't able to checkout the branch here for testing, but I noticed one thing for the maxima_lib interfacing:
 You are installing an extra rule in
mqapply_to_sage
, which I assume is correct. This rule registered in the special_max_to_sage dictionary: Great! that's what you're supposed to do  However, for conversion back, there should be a corresponding entry in special_sage_to_max as well, and you're not adding that. You'd have to test, but from the rule in the other direction, I'd guess it should be something like:
sage.functions.hypergeometric.hypergeometric : lambda A, B, X : [[mqapply],[[max_hyper, max_array],lisp_length(A)1,lisp_length(B)1],A,B,X]
where
lisp_length=EclObject('length')
If you don't put this rule in place, you'll find that things like "limit", "integral" and "sum" (which use sr_to_max
) will probably not work correctly with hypergeometric function. (in fact, I'm not so sure maxima has much support for them anyway, but at least we should make sure that the functions can survive a roundtrip)
Another bit: the addition to sr_to_max
+ elif op == tuple: + return maxima(expr.operands()).ecl()
should read
+ elif op == tuple: + return EclObject( ([mlist],(sr_to_max(op) for op in expr.operands())) )
if a "symbolic tuple" should indeed be translated into a maxima list.
(the branch attached to this ticket currently doesn't build to a usable executable for me. I'm having some libntl conflict)

I found this suspicious (it's in the implementation of the _fast_callable_
method
+ self.__name__ = self.__repr__() # was clobbered by category mechanics + return etb.call(self, *map(etb.var, etb._vars))
One shouldn't touch the __name__
attribute, and certainly not during arbitrary executing code! Is it clear what code depends on the __name__
being identical to __repr__
? Can we solve this issue (cheaply) during __init__
, or perhaps avoid the clobbering altogether?

It fixes the issue mentioned above where the doctest gets different output than interactive Sage. The first doctest in _fast_callable_
.

__init__

Nope it happens after __init__
or perhaps avoid the clobbering altogether?
It is a consequence of hypergeometric
being a SE with tuples as parameter. In theExpression
constructor the class gets changed using dynamic_class()
and this appears to be responsible.
Overall, all long tests pass and I see no reason to hold this old ticket any longer.

Well, you can look it up. Python uses __name__
for any "named" object (e.g., defined by a def
or a class
or modules). These things aren't supposed to change (they are used for introspection). The fact that it does (and that that matters!) points to either a flaw in the category system or in the way it is used here.

The issues around sr_to_max

comment:40 followup: ↓ 42 Changed 8 years ago by
OK, the problem is in ext.fast_callable.function_name
, which gets called by sage.ext.fast_callable.ExpressionCall.__repr__
. with as argument the "function" component of the ExpressionCall?. The problem is: an expression doesn't have a __name__
. So you end up finding a __name__
somewhere higher in the inheritance. You just end up putting an extraneous attribute on the expression. To illustrate the nasty sideeffect:
sage: h = hypergeometric([],[],x) sage: h.__name__ 'CommutativeRings.element_class' sage: from sage.ext.fast_callable import ExpressionTreeBuilder sage: etb = ExpressionTreeBuilder(vars=['x']) sage: _ = h._fast_callable_(etb) sage: h.__name__ 'hypergeometric((), (), x)'
As you see, _fast_callable_
now has a sideeffect on h
!
A better solution would be to adapt the routine ext.fast_callable.function_name
(or the way it gets used). It's clear you're now feeding it things it wasn't designed for.

Yes but how to distinguish such a 'dynamical' expression from Expression
? The type displayed (sage.functions.hypergeometric.Expression_with_dynamic_methods
) cannot be tested for directly. To do it right it should not be hypergeometricspecific either.

What about
+ if isinstance(fn, Expression) and str(type(fn)).find('Expression_with_dynamic_methods') >= 0: + return "{%r}" % fn
Alternatively this seems to work too:
+ if isinstance(type(h),sage.structure.dynamic_class.DynamicMetaclass) + return "{%r}" % fn
Wouldn't one of these be safe enough?

I think the distinction should be easier to make. I don't think __name__
is reasonable on any expression. Compare:
sage: h = hypergeometric([], [], x) sage: s = sin(x) sage: from sage.ext.fast_callable import ExpressionTreeBuilder sage: etb = ExpressionTreeBuilder(vars=['x']) sage: v = h._fast_callable_(etb) sage: w = s._fast_callable_(etb) sage: type(v.function()) <class 'sage.functions.hypergeometric.Expression_with_dynamic_methods'> sage: type(w.function()) <class 'sage.functions.trig.Function_sin'>
As you can see, with more traditional functions, there's a rather more dedicated object in the function slot, for which the __name__
can be expected to be quite descriptive. For an expression, the __name__
attribute, if there's something there at all (and that there is seems a sideeffect of the dynamic classes. Normally, __name__
doesn't descend to class instances), can't really be descriptive. Looking at how to tell them apart:
sage: type(v.function()).mro() [sage.functions.hypergeometric.Expression_with_dynamic_methods, sage.symbolic.expression.Expression, sage.structure.element.CommutativeRingElement, sage.structure.element.RingElement, sage.structure.element.ModuleElement, sage.structure.element.Element, sage.structure.sage_object.SageObject, object] sage: type(w.function()).mro() [sage.functions.trig.Function_sin, sage.symbolic.function.GinacFunction, sage.symbolic.function.BuiltinFunction, sage.symbolic.function.Function, sage.structure.sage_object.SageObject, object]
So my guess is that you only need isinstance(type(h), sage.symbolic.expression.Expression)
, no need to check for substrings. On the other hand, your sage.structure.dynamic_class.DynamicMetaclass
seems to work too, even though that class doesn't show up in the mro!
I think we're running into a breakdown of ducktyping here: the code as written previously assumed that if a __name__
attribute is present, then it's meaningful. This is apparently not true for some dynamic classes and makes me think that maybe this __name__
attribute shouldn't be provided (wherever that happens).

This can't do what I think it is meant to do. Either the reference to "hypergeometric" as a dictionary key leads to resolving the lazy import (this is the most likely, because we'll need hypergeometric.__hash__()
to set the dict entry), in which case there's no point in doing a lazy import, or some lazy proxy makes it into the dictionary as a key, which is then out of reach of the lazy import resolver to substitute with the real thing, leaving the proxy (and its slowdown) in place indefinitely.
I suspect that just importing hypergeometric
normally will lead to acceptable performance.

 Status changed from needs_work to needs_review
Reset to before lazy import. Reviewers will just have to ignore the PluginFailed
from patchbot.
I'll grab the occasion and announce that I will not run after every upgrade merge fail from now, but simply upload a patch that reviewers/other authors should apply at merge conflict. If that patch goes stale as well, too bad.

Now that the lazy import experiment was abandoned, is there anything amiss?

Looks good to me but merge conflict with #16007. Either merge that branch in or wait until the next beta.

 Status changed from needs_review to positive_review
I understand Volker's final remark as 'conditionally positive', and now the condition is fulfilled.

Does anybody remember why this inspect.ismethod
condition was added here to the deprecation from #5930? I mean, either something is deprecated or not. It shouldn't depend on some very subtle condition like the type of the _fast_callable_
attribute.
import inspect if not hasattr(_the_element,'_fast_callable_') or not inspect.ismethod(_the_element._fast_callable_): # only warn if _the_element is not dynamic from sage.misc.superseded import deprecation deprecation(5930, "Substitution using functioncall syntax and unnamed arguments is deprecated and will be removed from a future release of Sage; you can use named arguments instead, like EXPR(x=..., y=...)")
