I'm not going to answer the other questions; those are best asked on the mailing list. Please take your questions there.  Comment By: Dženan Zukić (dzenanz) Date: 20100830 10:27 Message: That does the trick. But without load command there was no warning/error that "simplify_sum" is not loaded. How many such modules are there? Can they all fit into workspace (memory) on an average computer? (I believe yes). Have you considered autoloading all such modules on startup (as Derive does)? Is there any other reason (besides efficiency) for not loading them all on startup? And my preference: simplicity over efficiency for stuff that is realtimefast (such as simple symbolic math). Anyway, thanks for the help.

Comment By: Dženan Zukić (dzenanz) Date: 20100830 06:19 Message: Sorry, when copying the formula from my C++ code into Maxima for debugging purposes, I missed division by n within cosine functions. This is the correct formula: ratsimp(sum(0.5*cos((4*%pi*i)/n)+cos((2*%pi*i)/n)+0.25,i,0,n1)/n); However, this does not simplify in Maxima. In Derive 6.1, it gives the result I was trying to confirm (the result I suspected by tracing variable values in my code): this sum is equal to 0.25. So, this can be changed from bug to feature request.

Comment By: Dieter Kaiser (crategus) Date: 20100829 03:38 Message: I do not see a problem and I get the expected results: (%i2) sum((1/4+cos(2*i*%pi)+1/2*cos(4*i*%pi))/n,i,0,n1); (%o2) 7/4 This is the same as (%i26) 7/4*sum(1/n,i,0,n1); (%o26) 7/4 When a division by n is missing in the cos functions we have to use the function simplify_sum to get a simplified result: (%i20) simplify_sum(sum((1/4+cos(2*i*%pi/n)+1/2*cos(4*i*%pi/n))/n,i,0,n1)); (%o20) 1/4 This again is a correct result. The result does not depend on n. Setting the status to pending and the resolution to "works for me". Dieter Kaiser  Comment By: Dženan Zukić (dzenanz) Date: 20100827 21:08 Message: You missed division by n (at the end). And I missed division by n within cosines. I will have to check this again on Monday  I guess I have found a bug in my code now :D  Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20100827 19:55 Message: Why is the correct answer 0.25? 0.25+cos(2*i*%pi)+0.5*cos(4*i*%pi) = 0.25 + 1 + 0.5 = 1.75 for all integer i. So it looks like the sum should always be 1.75 to me. Did I miss something?  You can respond by visiting: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=104933&aid=3054399&group_id=4933

Category: Lisp Core  Simplification Group: None >Status: Pending Resolution: Works For Me Priority: 5 Private: No Submitted By: Dženan Zukić (dzenanz) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: Sum incorrectly calculated Initial Comment: The commands below are steps to reproduce. The correct sum for n=5 is 0.25. (%i2) declare (n, constant); (%o2) done (%i6) sum((0.25+cos(2*i*%pi)+0.5*cos(4*i*%pi))/n,i,0,n1); (%o6) 1.75 GUI: wxMaxima on Win7 x64  Maxima version: 5.22.1 Maxima build date: 11:48 8/13/2010 Host type: i686pcmingw32 Lisp implementation type: GNU Common Lisp (GCL) Lisp implementation version: GCL 2.6.8   >Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20100830 09:49 Message: Look at Dieter's comments. By using simplify_sum, he gets the answer of 1/4, as expected. Marking report as pending.  Comment By: Dženan Zukić (dzenanz) Date: 20100830 06:19 Message: Sorry, when copying the formula from my C++ code into Maxima for debugging purposes, I missed division by n within cosine functions. This is the correct formula: ratsimp(sum(0.5*cos((4*%pi*i)/n)+cos((2*%pi*i)/n)+0.25,i,0,n1)/n); However, this does not simplify in Maxima. In Derive 6.1, it gives the result I was trying to confirm (the result I suspected by tracing variable values in my code): this sum is equal to 0.25. So, this can be changed from bug to feature request.
