Comparison between Sage and mpmath numbers works with mpmath numbers on the left, but not on the right:

sage: mpmath.mpf(1) < 3
sage: 1 < mpmath.mpf(3)
sage: 4 == mpmath.mpf(4)

Found by Harald Schilly (see #8791).

This appears to be a bug in Sage (or Cython). Sage's numbers do the pure-Python equivalent of not returning NotImplemented when compared to unrecognized types. For a minimal example:

sage: class X(object):
....:         def __init__(self, v): self.v = v
....:     def __lt__(self, other): return self.v < int(other)
....:     def __gt__(self, other): return self.v > int(other)
sage: X(1) < 3
sage: 1 < X(3)
sage: X(1) < int(3)
sage: int(1) < X(3)

I think this is fixed by #21163.

comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by embray

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from positive_review to closed

Determined to be invalid/duplicate/wontfix (closing as "wontfix" as a catch-all resolution).
