Description (last modified by maldun)

The current implementation of orthogonal polynomials is just a wrapper around maxima. (see http://wiki.sagemath.org/symbolics/) This update holds the following changes:

*using of the pynac class for symbolic functions. *faster evaluation in general *evaluation of special values *mpmath for numeric evaluation

Remarks:

*The current patch needs scipy-0.8. One has to install it before testing (see #9808 for spkg's and installation instructions)

  • Some of the old doctests in the old file don't work any more, due to coercion problems with pynac (see #9769)
  • Some doctests in Sage change, due to the fact that new BuiltIn? functions are added. symbolic.random_test.py had output changes since the random expression creation changed of course. The tests in pynac.pyx also changed, but this has a strange behavior (see below).

Change History (38)

Changed 11 years ago by maldun

A new version of the orthogonal_polys.py file.

Changed 11 years ago by maldun

Newer version, with legendre_P, and faster evaluation of symbolic expressions

Changed 11 years ago by maldun

Version from 10. August 2010

Changed 11 years ago by maldun

Latest version. It holds classes of all polys (but not all completed yet)

comment:1 follow-up: Changed 11 years ago by maldun

All Polys now have their own class. Much faster evaluation is added. Numerical evaluation is provided. Except for legendre_Q, gen_legendre_P, and gen_legendre_Q these aren't ready yet

orthogonal_polys4.py hold all changes but is not a patch yet, because it holds old code fragments, which I have to clean up...

comment:4 Changed 11 years ago by maldun

I added in the latest patch (and orthogonal_polys.4.py contains these changes also) a new symbolic evaluation method for the orthogonal polynomials: Instead of call Maxima or use of the recursion, the polynomial is evaluated just using explicit formulas from Abramowitz and Stegun. This is an O(n) algorithm of course.

a little comparison on my machine: old version:

A little bit faster :) I also don't need to spawn an instance of maxima which makes the initialisation faster.

And now also wider symbolic evaluation is possible:

old version: sage: var('a') a sage: gegenbauer(3,a,x) ... NameError?: name 'a' is not defined

new version: sage: var('a') a sage: gegenbauer(3,a,x) 4/3*x3*gamma(a + 3) - 2*x*gamma(a + 2)

The code needs now some cleanup, especially the documentations. The complete versions for legendre_Q, gen_legendre_P, and gen_legendre_Q will not be finished soon since the mpmath functions, don't seem to work correctly... I only provide a call function for maxima for them now.

Sorry for the late answer, I was on holidays.

In mpmath I have probs with the legenp and legenq functions. For some inputs I get this error:

Version from 19. August 2010

comment:11 follow-ups: Changed 11 years ago by maldun

So now a "beta" is ready with full support of all classes.

Only the Legendre functions are still using Maxima.

some advances for the future:

-Zernike polys (this should be done in the next time, since explicit formulas are available) -support for numpy_eval. (But this will be done, when the scipy package is updated to 0.8, else it has no sense, because the current version of scipy does not support ortho polys well, but the newer can handle them)

Now I need some people for testing this out =)

comment:12 in reply to: ↑ 11 Changed 11 years ago by maldun

And there was an interisting bug:

the import of mpmath at the beginning of the file caused the whole trouble I had with the numeric evaluation of the legendre functions....

I think I should report this..

I decided to give at least some numpy support for compability reasons. But this is a bad hack...when scipy 0.8 comes I use scipy itself, I change this to a better version :)

Why is mpmath's precision used by default? Shouldn't the default be RR / CC precision? Actually, does _evalf_ ever get called without this information?

Some complex tests would be nice.

This is a good point, and it shouldn't be a problem to change that. But I don't think it's a big deal, because the function takes the "parents" precision, which means, if my input is RR it evals it with RR's precision.

Of course can you call _evalf_ just with (), and then the default value is used.

I just sticked to the old's version tests, and expanded it. Of course it's possible to expand the tests. I hope I will find some time for it soon, since I have some other more urgent things todo also.

Ok sorry, wrong explination: when your input are exact data types like ZZ ore QQ then the parent has no precision, then you need a default value

comment:25 Changed 11 years ago by maldun

Since it seems that numpy-1.4.1, and scipy 0.8 should work now (see #9808) I programmed a version which uses scipy itself to evaluate the orthogonal polys for numpy arrays. When the new versions of numpy/scipy become merged into sage I will provide a patch for these.

Another thing I have to mention are these 2 failde doctests:

  • sage -t -long "devel/sage/sage/symbolic/random_tests.py"
  • sage -t -long "devel/sage/sage/symbolic/pynac.pyx"
sage -t -long "devel/sage/sage/symbolic/random_tests.py"

I quite understand these, because we have introduced new functions, but I don't understand the exception in the last one

And these are really strange, because when I type then into sage by hand everything works. wtf?? Can anyone have a look at these?

Just cc:ing myself by commenting.

Also, there seems to be a lot of stuff in the latest Python file that is the same as the original one (in terms of explanation, not code). Maybe posting an updated patch (once the numpy/scipy-fest is over, which is hopefully the case) would help some of us figure this out. Thanks for working on this - there is still a lot of overhauling that symbolics could use, but this is a great step.

  • Description modified (diff)
  • Status changed from needs_work to needs_review

@kcrisman thanks for paying attention. I added now an updated patch and extended instructions.

the doctest changes in symbolic.random_tests.py are easy to explain: new functions are involved -> new random expressions. But I had to change random_expr(50, nvars=3, coeff_generator=CDF.random_element) to random_expr(60, nvars=3, coeff_generator=CDF.random_element) or else one gets an expression generated where a division through zero occours.

As mentioned on sage-devel I repaired the doctests in symbolic.pynac.pyx, the trick is to enlarge the range of the for loop: for i in range(get_ginac_serial(), get_ginac_serial()+50): changed to for i in range(get_ginac_serial(), get_ginac_serial()+100): now it works. My explaination: since we have new functions we have longer to search, and then we reach our goal. What I can not explain is, that it works, when I type it in by hand.

All doctests pass now, so I think a review would be nice.
