Description
The round
function in sage/misc/functional.py
fails several tests with Python 3. The output is supposed to be double-precision, so we just convert the input to a float
first.

Replying to gh-mwageringel:
#25827 seems to be related.
Yes, although #25827 is broader in scope, with some questions that need answering. This change is much more focused.

Ok, fair enough. It looks like this should work for now. Converting to float seems to be what is happening in Python 2 as well, as a naïve test shows:
sage: from six.moves import builtins sage: builtins.round(i, 2) --------------------------------------------------------------------------- TypeError Traceback (most recent call last) <ipython-input-5-8b1e2e3412b1> in <module>() ----> 1 builtins.round(i, Integer(2)) /Applications/SageMath/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/symbolic/expression.pyx in sage.symbolic.expression.Expression.__float__ (build/cythonized/sage/symbolic/expression.cpp:11079)() 1426 raise 1427 except TypeError: -> 1428 raise TypeError("unable to simplify to float approximation") 1429 return ret 1430 TypeError: unable to simplify to float approximation
In the long run, this should probably be changed, so that classes can implement a custom __round__()
without converting to float, such as matrices. However, currently nothing in Sage implements __round__()
– so this seems to be something #25827 will deal with. (Only rings/rational defines it, but it is essentially broken with Python 3.)
I do not quite feel competent enough to set this to positive though, so hopefully someone more knowledgeable can help.
