Description
ContinuousMap
defines its own __eq__
method, while inheritating from Morphism.__hash__
. Now, as pointed out in #24551, Python3 breaks the inheritance of __hash__
when __eq__
is redefined. This ticket fixes this by implementing ContinousMap.__hash__
. Moreover, contrary to Morphism.__hash__
, the new method does not rely on repr()
and guarantees that two continous maps that compare equal have the same hash.
Note that there is a proposal at #25393 to remove Morphism.__hash__
.
ContinousMap
(more precisely the derived class DiffMap
) needs to be hashable because DiffMap
objects serve as keys in the dictionary of vector field modules on a manifold, a module of vector fields on a differentiable manifold being essentially defined by a differentiable map (with the important special case of the identity map; see here for details).

does seem to be a very rough hash... But it will do the job for the moment

Replying to chapoton:

Yes it's pretty rough, but there should be no loss of efficiency, since continuous maps are only used as keys in the dictionary DifferentiableManifold._vector_field_modules
, which is of very small size; most of the time, it has a single element (the continuous map being then merely the identity map).
