Automorphism Fields: Notation of Inverse

Description (last modified by )
At this stage we have the following problem with the notation of inverses:
sage: M = Manifold(2, 'M') sage: X.<x,y> = M.chart() sage: aib = M.automorphism_field([[0, 2], [1, 0]], name='a^(1)*b') sage: c = aib.inverse(); c Field of tangentspace automorphisms a^(1)*b^(1) on the 2dimensional differentiable manifold M
That is definitely misleading. In this ticket it gets fixed by adding brackets around the element before taking its inverse if the name could cause any confusion:
sage: c = aib.inverse(); c Field of tangentspace automorphisms (a^(1)*b)^(1) on the 2dimensional differentiable manifold M
To solve this, the ticket provides a modification of is_atomic
in sage/tensor/modules/format_utilities.py
.

Thanks for taking care of this! However, for simple names like a
, having (a)^(1)
for the inverse is not desirable. One should maintain a^(1)
in this case. To cover all cases, you should use something like is_atomic()
(defined in src/sage/tensor/modules/format_utilities.py
); see the handling of names in FreeModuleAltForm.wedge()
. More precisely, you should define, in format_utilities.py
, a new function similar to is_atomic
and adapted to the inverse naming.

You're right. That's definitely preferrable.
This was the fastest solution I had in mind so far. I see what I can do.

Thanks for the useful enhancement of the function is_atomic()
.
The patchbot complains about the change introduced in the commit of comment:10

There is also a doctest error reported by one of the patchbots:

As you can see from the latest patchbot report, <>
still causes some trouble:
Python3 incompatible code inserted on 0 nonempty lines +inside file: b/src/sage/tensor/modules/format_utilities.py +@@ 52,16 +55,31 @@ def is_atomic(expression): ++ sage: is_atomic(r"a<>b", sep=[r'<>']) ++ sage: is_atomic(r"(a<>b)", sep=[r'<>']) +Python3 incompatible code inserted on 2 nonempty lines
Apparently, the operator <>
has been removed in Python 3: it does not appear in the list
https://docs.python.org/3/library/operator.html.
So please remove this doctest.
comment:19 Changed 5 months ago by
I see. Well, this is on the symbolic level, so no actual Python code is involved here. Even though another operator as example would be certainly more convenient.

Perhaps this is a good example because the separator consists of more than one letter.
