Description (last modified by )
Introduce lazy Laurent series to Sage.
A lazy Laurent series computes coefficients only when demanded or needed. In a sense, lazy Laurent series are Laurent series of infinite precision.
A generating function example from the code:
Generating functions are laurent series over the integer ring:: sage: from sage.rings.lazy_laurent_series_ring import LazyLaurentSeriesRing sage: L = LazyLaurentSeriesRing(ZZ, 'z') This defines the generating function of Fibonacci sequence:: sage: def coeff(s, i): ....: if i in [0, 1]: ....: return 1 ....: else: ....: return s.coefficient(i  1) + s.coefficient(i  2) ....: sage: f = L.series(coeff, valuation=0); f 1 + z + 2*z^2 + 3*z^3 + 5*z^4 + 8*z^5 + 13*z^6 + ... The 100th element of Fibonacci sequence can be obtained from the generating function:: sage: f.coefficient(100) 573147844013817084101
Lazy Laurent series is of course useful for other things. This will be used to implement infinite precision Laurent series expansion of algebraic functions in function fields, as a sequel to #27418.

Some comments:
Is there a reason why you do not use the LazyPowerSeriesRing
for the main element (with a nonzero constant term until the whole series is zero) and then just store the valuation? This is how things are done for the Laurent polynomials. That way there is less duplication of code and improvements to one improve both.
Why do you override __eq__
and not use the one provided by Element
and the coercion framework? It is more flexible and allows you do implement comparisons (if you want) all in one function of _richcmp_
.
Do not have bare except:
statements (see coefficient
).
Does the elements pickle? I am a little worried that the addition of two power series will not pickling because of the little helper add
function. You should add a loads(dumps(foo))
test if it does work.

I looked into the LazyPowerSeriesRing
many years ago:
I think I didn't like it in several ways :) Still I don't understand this behavior:
sage: L.<t>=LazyPowerSeriesRing(QQ) sage: s=L([0,0,1,2]) sage: s.coefficient(0) 0 sage: s.coefficient(1) 0 sage: s.coefficient(2) 1 sage: s.coefficient(3) 2 sage: s t^2 + 2*t^3 + O(x^4) sage: s.get_order() 1 sage: s.get_aorder() 1
The reason was that it was easy to implement lazy laurent series with an interface and behaviors that I prefer, while I could not understand well enough LazyPowerSeriesRing
...
I would reconsider basing lazy laurent series on LazyPowerSeriesRing
, if you help me understand the strange behaviour above.
comment:14 Changed 20 months ago by
So here is what refine_aorder
does. It first checks if self.order
has been set, if it has, do not do anything. Then it goes through all of the n
computed entries if self.aorder
is 0 and we have already computed at least one entry. Then find the first nonzero entry. If we have found one, set the order.
The problem is the bold part. After the first iteration when n = 1
, the self.aorder
gets set to 1
, then on the second run through, that block does not get run, which then means self.aorder < n
and we set the order to be 1
.
sage: s.coefficient(1) 0 sage: s.aorder 1 sage: s.order Unknown series order sage: s.coefficient(2) 1 sage: s.aorder 1 sage: s.order 1
IMO, this is a bug.

No. Your worry is real; lazy Laurent series is not picklable in general. This seems an inherent nature of my implementation...
I added a test to show this.

I thought about this. Now I think:
Lazy Laurent series is not just about Laurent series but also about how coefficients are computed lazily. A LazyPowerSeriesRing
element gets its coefficients from a stream object, which essentially yields coefficients as required. On the other hand, lazy Laurent series s
gets its coefficients from a python function that outputs nth coefficient for input s
and n
. This allows coefficients to be computed recursively. For example, it is very easy to define the Fibonacci series.
So it is impossible to base my lazy Laurent series code on LazyPowerSeriesRing
without abandoning the essential feature of the implementation.
Frankly, I would rather provide new lazy power series as a subclass of my lazy Laurent series. But this is of course highly biased opinion :)
You may be reluctant to accept my implementation of lazy Laurent series into sage.rings
as it then gets kind of standard status among different possible implementations of lazy Laurent series in Sage. Then I am willing to relocate it into sage.rings.function_field
.

Well, I am fairly certain you could do this with an RecursivelyEnumeratedSet
and a bit of knowhow, but I agree that it is more complicated and less intuitive. I also agree that having general functions as input would probably be a good thing for LazyPowerSeriesRing
to have, but I believe that was designed for more specific use for the combinat/species
code.
One benefit I do see is that you do not need to explicitly know the valuation at creationtime. With my suggested implementation, it does need to be computed at element creation.
Frankly, I would rather provide new lazy power series as a subclass of my lazy Laurent series. But this is of course highly biased opinion :)
I don't have an opinion on this matter, but there are likely some considerations required to replace or extend the current implementation.

This I don't really care about. I just am a little unhappy with the large difference between the semantics (and syntax) between the two implementations. I guess that is a bit unavoidable here because this definitely is serving a purpose.
However, I do think we should at least try to address the pickling issues. I believe this means you cannot use this in parallel implementations (IIRC this uses pickling to communicate between the processes). It also means you cannot (easily) store the data you compute. I think it is sufficient to separate out the add
and similar operations into functions, but maybe they need to be small little helper class, such as
class LaurentSeriesOperator(object): def __init__(self, lps, op): self.lps = lps self.op = op def __call__(self, s, n): return self.op(self.lps[n], s[n]) def __reduce__(self): return (type(self), (self.lps, self.op), {}) def __eq__(self, other): return (isinstance(other, LaurentSeriesOperator) and self.lps == other.lps and self.op == other.op)
where op
is, e.g., operator.add
. This way you might be able to do something with comparisons in some semireasonable capacity too.

Using modulelevel classes to define operators is a good idea. Hinted by your template class, I could reimplement lazy Laurent series to be picklable. Great!

Past experience tells me you should also implement a __ne__
at the base class. I also think you should include more ABCs to avoid the extra duplication with the __eq__
methods. Similarly, why not use the op
version for +*/
to avoid class duplication? You may also want a __hash__
and incorporate that into the hash of the lazy Laurent series. With how many operator classes you have, it may also be worthwhile pulling that out to a separate file for better separationsofconcerns between files.

You can do what I suggested in comment:20 for these classes:
LazyLaurentSeriesOperator_add
(by passingoperator.add
)LazyLaurentSeriesOperator_sub
(by passingoperator.sub
)
You're right that multiplication must be treated separately. Although you could also do this for a scalar multiplication version of this (which will be faster than coercion and multiplication). For 2 cases, there is a less compelling reason to factor the common code out like this.
There is not really a benefit for doing this for unitary operations (as there is only 1 that could work this way).
In some ways it feels like we are reinventing the wheel here because we are effectively building an evaluation tree, and we already have something like this within SR
(or sympy/pynac/etc.). However, I don't see a way around this by using SR
(and we might have to work a little bit to avoid doing computations unnecessarily inside of there). So I think we have to keep doing things this way. Just an observation.

True. It is just inevitable that sometimes we make wheels for different needs :)

I find this quite wonderful! It would be great if we could replace LazyPowerSeries
with this. One feature of LazyPowerSeries
was that it allows recursive definitions "guessing" the correct initialisations, as for example in
sage: L = LazyPowerSeriesRing(QQ) sage: one = L(1) sage: monom = L.gen() sage: s = L() sage: s._name = 's' sage: s.define(one+monom*s*s) sage: [s.coefficient(i) for i in range(6)] [1, 1, 2, 5, 14, 42]
Although this is based on the original code by Ralf Hemmecke and myself, which in turn is based on code of Nicolas Thiery (I think), I am not sure anymore whether it is so important. Of course, if we could have something similar, even better.

One question with respect to equality. It seems to me that your implementation of __eq__
is quite brittle. It is clear that one cannot have proper equality, so it should be clearly stated what it can do and what it can't.
Apart from that, in the case of truncation, one could make it exact easily.
comment:39 followup: ↓ 42 Changed 20 months ago by
Some other comments on the code:
For __bool__
, I think erroring out immediately when self._constant is None
is not the way to go. I think you should check the computed coefficients in that case to see if any of them are nonzero. If they are all 0
, then you should error out. Also, a fast first check when self._constant
is not None
is to see if that constant is nonzero 0
.
In _repr_
, I do not see how self.valuation()
would normally raise a ValueError
. That method does not raise one, nor does self.coefficient()
(the only other method it calls).
Instead of self.parent()(1)
, which calls the coercion framework, you should use self.parent().one()
.
Are you sure you want _div_
to be two separate operations and not one combined one? I feel like the latter would be faster (at least since it is implemented at the Python level).
Actually, you may want to make the operator file into a Cython file (since is forms the key computational part and it is in a separate file).
I think the truncate should return an honest Laurent polynomial. Furthermore, I don't think there are coercions (or at least conversions) from the corresponding Laurent polynomial ring. This feels like a very natural to have. I don't want to go too far with ticket expansion, but this feels like something people will try soon after having this.

I don't feel so. I don't see a way to implement series division such that 1 + 1 < 2 with a significant margin.
I think the truncate should return an honest Laurent polynomial.
I don't agree. One might still want a truncated series with laziness. For your cases, I added polynomial
method to convert to an honest polynomial.
Furthermore, I don't think there are coercions (or at least conversions) from the corresponding Laurent polynomial ring. This feels like a very natural to have. I don't want to go too far with ticket expansion, but this feels like something people will try soon after having this.
Right. I added coercions from (Laurent) polynomial rings.
Actually, you may want to make the operator file into a Cython file (since is forms the key computational part and it is in a separate file).
Hmm. I doubt if there would be significant speed boost, compensating increased build time (that I hate). Moreover I am not versed with Cython. So I don't want to do that, at least for this ticket. But if you do it, I would not object.

The implementation gives an answer if possible without computing coefficients indefinitely. Otherwise raise an exception.
I added a short explanation to the method.

Truncation still gives a lazy series. I added polynomial
method to convert to an exact polynomial.

Recursive definition is possible as a result of being lazy and being power series. Now you can do the same in the following way:

Apart from that, in the case of truncation, one could make it exact easily.
Truncation still gives a lazy series. I added
polynomial
method to convert to an exact polynomial.
excellent point! I missed that!

Are you sure you want
_div_
to be two separate operations and not one combined one? I feel like the latter would be faster (at least since it is implemented at the Python level).I don't feel so. I don't see a way to implement series division such that 1 + 1 < 2 with a significant margin.
You are right. I was wrong!

Are composition and reversion planned in a later ticket?
I am really looking forward to this! I hope very much we can rebase the species code on it. Should LazyPowerSeriesRing
be a subclass?

Replying to mantepse:

Not by me. Anyone is invited to add them in a later ticket.

LazyPowerSeriesRing
be a subclass?
Yes, in a separate file alongside with lazy Laurent series. It would be great. I don't have a plan to do it in any short time, simply because I don't need it now.

 Reviewers set to Travis Scrimshaw
Last little thing:
R(0)
> R.zero()
(as it is cached and R
is always a LazyLaurentSeriesRing
).
Once done you can set a positive review on my behalf.
