etc.

How is this method being used? I don't want to add a hidden method that is not used. I think it is generally better to have at least one usecase in the same ticket.

Done this. If Lats
is a list of all 10element lattices, then the time for
sum(1 for L in Lats if L.is_uniform())
drops from 26 seconds to 9 seconds with this patch.

LGTM. Thanks. Nice speedup too.
comment:9 Changed 17 months ago by
Thanks.
The speedup thing for this kind of functions is hard to decide. It the user asks if a lattice is modular, should we first try to see if it happens to be distributive? If so, it must be also modular and the test was very fast. But then, distributive lattices are "rare". OTOH also lattices with at least one "doubledouble"irreducible element are "rare", so should we test for those?
At the other extreme we have for example is_orthocomplemented
, where we start by checking that the number of elements is even; here the quick test is extremely cheap.

Because the test for distributive is relatively expensive (and a stronger property?), I would not do it. One possibility is putting a .. NOTE::
in the doc saying something like in your comment: that the distributive test is faster but more likely to fail. (Although perhaps stronger properties are easier to test for in general?)

Maybe... But that might depend on use case.
(Although perhaps stronger properties are easier to test for in general?)
No, for example testing for semimodularity is faster that testing for modularity. But of course one can always test for a stronger property to get sure "yes"answer, test for a weaker property to get sure "no"answer, and only when needed to proceed testing the original property.
