This is nice, but like #3401, should have some doctests indicating it works for complex input (I assume it does). The patch also depends on #3401.

This patch adds these tests. It still depends on the (newest) patch at #3401, and in fact gets rid of one final thing which was only needed by the previous implementation of Li.

This needs more work. See my comments about the prec parameter at comment:10:ticket:3401.

Two different functions whose names differ only in capitalization (li and Li) is also very confusing. We need to come up with a better name for this.

This seems to be addressed in the context of a much bigger overhaul by #11143. But there the name is... more complicated.

comment:8 Changed 8 years ago by benjaminfjones

Yes, this would duplicate work done in #11143. The function added there is a fully symbolic function with numerical evaluation handled by mpmath. I think that is superior to the one defined here which is just a wrapper for the mpmath call.

The function added in #11143 is really a class called Function_exp_integral_li and it has an alias exp_integral_li to match the other exponential integrals. #11143 also moves all the exponential integrals to a new module under sage/functions so this would conflict with that design decision too.

  • Milestone changed from sage-4.7.2 to sage-duplicate/invalid/wontfix

So this can be closed as duplicate, correct? Except I really would love it to be called Li instead of something horribly long... either way, feel free to review this as positive; I'm changing the milestone.

This is definitely and definitively duplicated by the much more comprehensive #11143.
