Category: Lisp Core  Simplification Group: None >Status: Closed >Resolution: Fixed Priority: 5 Private: No Submitted By: Dieter Kaiser (crategus) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: binomial(1/2,1/3),nouns Initial Comment: The function binomial has an unusual definition for the verb function: (defmfun $binomial (x y) (let (($numer t) ($float t)) (simplify (list '(%binomial) x y)))) In addition to other simplifying functions the flags $numer and $float are set to T. This causes a different behavior. The verb function is called when the evflag NOUNS is used. This is the behavior of a standard simplifying function. The evflag NOUNS does not force evaluation: (%i2) sin(1/2); (%o2) sin(1/2) (%i3) sin(1/2),nouns; (%o3) sin(1/2) (%i4) sin(1/2),float; (%o4) 0.479425538604203 The binomial functions evaluates numerically with the evflag NOUNS: (%i5) binomial(1/2,1/3); (%o5) binomial(1/2,1/3) (%i6) binomial(1/2,1/3),nouns; (%o6) 1.06976119171899 I think there is no reason to have a different definition for the binomial function.
