Category: Lisp Core  Solving equations Group: None Status: Open Resolution: None Priority: 5 Private: No Submitted By: JeanYves (jyoberle) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: to_poly_solve gives a wrong solution for cos(x)=sin(3x) Initial Comment: Hi, When doing: load(to_poly_solve); algexact:true; to_poly_solve(cos(x)sin(3*x),x); I get: to_poly_solve: to_poly_solver.mac is obsolete; I'm loading to_poly_solve.mac instead. %union([x=(4*%pi*%z0+%pi)/4],[x=(4*%pi*%z1+%pi)/8]) But I think that the first solution should be (based on hand solving): (4*%pi*%z0+%pi)/4 (no minus sign). For example: if we consider %z0 = 0 in the to_poly_solve solution, we get x=%pi/4 which is not a solution of the equation cos(x)sin(3*x). On the other hand, if we set %z0 = 0 in the hand found solution, we get x=%pi/4 which is a solution.

This is a very simple definite bug so what do i have to do to get some attention and action taken on it ? Thanks.

Category: Lisp Core  Simplification Group: None >Status: Closed >Resolution: Fixed Priority: 5 Private: No Submitted By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: elliptic_f(2,1) is wrong Initial Comment: Maxima says elliptic_f(2,1) is log(tan(%pi/4+1)). That's not right because elliptic_f(%pi/2,1) is infinity. elliptic_f(x,1) also simplifies to log(tan(%pi/4+x/2)), but that's only corrrect if abs(x) <= %pi/2. Not sure what to do about the latter, but for numeric arguments, we should either return infinity or an error.  >Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20120819 10:27 Message: Signal an error in this case.

Comment By: Barton Willis (willisbl) Date: 20110729 05:53 Message: Using Clozure CL, I get the same three test failures.  Comment By: Dieter Kaiser (crategus) Date: 20110729 04:08 Message: With the proposed change I get the desired result for log(1.0b0) > 3.141592653589793b0 %i. With SBCL I get three changes in the testsuite. I have not looked at the examples in detail, but it seems to me that failures are due to a slightly loss of accuracy in the numerical calculation of special functions. Perhaps the results have changed only within the predictable accuracy. Because we have no checks in the testsite for the numerical precision of the log function, it might be difficult to say if there is a small problem in the bigfloat package. At the end, it would be nice if we can implement one scheme of numerical evaluation, or if both available schemes give equivalent results.

Comment By: sergio pesenti (sergiopesenti) Date: 20110614 01:13 Message: Thanks alex. It works fine. However, I had some other trouble while defining my functions with cabs. For instance, the code simp:false$ define(y(x),log(cabs(1/(1+exp(%i*x)))))$ simp:true$ y(1.0); does not evaluate completely the numerical value. But it works if I use ":=" to define the function. Here the code simp:false$ y(x):=log(cabs(1/(1+exp(%i*x))))$ simp:true$ y(1.0); evaluates perfectly. I actually need to set "simp" to "false" because the expressions I deal with in my real case are quite complicated. I need to prevent a simplification at this stage to avoid MAXIMA to start an endless evaluation while defining my expressions.

I've tested this a bit (with oct), and it converges quickly for things on or near the negative real axis. The few tests I've done indicate that accuracy is good.  Comment By: Dieter Kaiser (crategus) Date: 20110324 12:06 Message: Hello Ray, you are right. The problem is the function gamma_incomplete. The continued fraction expansion of the function tends to converge to a wrong value for some ranges of the argument. In the past, I had searched for some hints in the literature to solve this problem more general. But I had not found a simple solution. Therefore, I had done a heuristic approach and checked several ranges for the arguments to achieve a better approximation of the function gamma_incomplete. I have to work again on this problem. Dieter Kaiser  Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20110324 06:27 Message: I think the inaccuracy comes from gammaincomplete, which is used to evaluate erf. For this particular argument, gammaincomplete uses the series. I think the test of when to use the series could be relaxed a bit. When I set *gammaimag* to 0.1, the continued fraction is used, which gives  2.7837770292209086e+9 %i  1.0786931161985383e+9 This is better. I've done some experiments using the continued fraction http://functions.wolfram.com/06.06.10.0005.01. This seems to work a bit better.

Category: Lisp Core  Floating point Group: None >Status: Closed >Resolution: Fixed Priority: 5 Private: No Submitted By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Assigned to: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Summary: elliptic_f(0.5,1) signals error Initial Comment: elliptic_f(0.5,1) signals an error, but it is welldefined. This is an error in the routine that does numerical evaluation because elliptic_f(x,1) returns log(tan(x/2+%pi/4)).  >Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20120817 09:56 Message: Fixed in git  You can respond by visiting: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=104933&aid=3440046&group_id=4933

Category: Documentation Group: None >Status: Closed >Resolution: Fixed Priority: 5 Private: No Submitted By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: gamma_expand not documented Initial Comment: gamma_expand should be documented (and mentioned in the docs for gamma_incomplete and friends). A nice feature enhancement would be allow gamma_expand to have a value so that gamma_incomplete(a,z) is expanded if a < gamma_expand.  >Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20120816 09:30 Message: This was fixed some time ago. ? gamma_expand gives documentation now.

Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20120131 13:27 Message: Yes, this is a known bug with gamma_incomplete: it's totally wrong for large arguments. There's already a bug filed for that, I think.  Comment By: Dan Gildea (dgildea) Date: 20120131 13:18 Message: (%i6) i : integrate(sin(x)^2/x,x); (%o6) (2*log(x)+gamma_incomplete(0,2*%i*x)+gamma_incomplete(0,2*%i*x))/4 I think that the indefinite integral above is correct. However, if we evaluate it numerically: (%i7) i,x:10,numer,expand; (%o7) 1.129082636318599 (%i8) i,x:100,numer,expand; (%o8) 1.167036722342424e+67 we get something that does not match the result of numerical integration: (%i12) quad_qags(sin(x)^2/x,x,10,100); (%o12) [1.175691679966213,1.71048903216243e11,651,0] Not sure if this is a branch cut issue or what, but the results for gamma_incomplete here do not match wolfram alpha.  Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20120131 11:52 Message: Sorry. The description text is wrong. The subject line has the correct parameters for the gamma function: gamma_incomplete(1/2, 24+10*%i), float; 4.934116315504894e+9 %i + 1.911933769523827e+9 Wolfram alpha says 1.911933769523828402749347154173060427220404029989163... × 10^9 + 4.934116315504895269147935150892571896585283827123923... × 10^9 i So it looks like we are accurate to full precision now.
