Category: Xmaxima Group: None >Status: Closed >Resolution: Fixed Priority: 5 Submitted By: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: Closing xmaxima issues "kill TERM 1" Initial Comment: At least for my particular setup, xmaxima has a very unfortunate behaviour at shutdown. I'm running a Linux x86 box, KDE 3.4, Tcl 8.4, maxima 5.9.1. Somehow, it seems that "pid" is set to 1 in line 13603 of xmaxima. This sends a kill TERM to every process it can, wiping out my login session and any associated jobs running. If run as root, it wipes out every logged in session and every running daemon. A sanity check on that parameter might be in order before issuing the kill on Linux.  >Comment By: Robert Dodier (robert_dodier) Date: 20060516 21:11 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=501686 Fixed by modifying the #+clisp version of GETPID in src/server.lisp (r1.10) so that it calls PROCESSID.

Comment By: Kevin Kofler (kevinkofler) Date: 20050922 20:53 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=573515 Please look at the Red Hat bugzilla #168451, they have pretty much tracked it down.

It was previously set to a Pending status, and the original submitter did not respond within 14 days (the time period specified by the administrator of this Tracker).  Comment By: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Date: 20050831 14:58 Message: Logged In: NO No, I'm afraid my version of xmaxima is uptodate, I installed from maxima5.9.1, and have never installed any version previously. I'm still getting "kill TERM 1". My RunMaxima.tcl file is version 1.18, and the version string embedded in the concatenated xmaxima file in my path matches that value. If you see the loop at line 295, it will only continue to the "xmaxima is running" state when pid becomes something other than "none". Apparently, it's coming back set to 1.  Comment By: Robert Dodier (robert_dodier) Date: 20050831 08:37 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=501686 It would appear that you're running an old version of xmaxima; at present the default value for pid is "none". The "kill 1" bug appears to have been fixed in r1.15 interfaces/xmaxima/Tkmaxima/RunMaxima.tcl (see http://cvs.sf.net/viewcvs.py/maxima/maxima/ and drill down from there). If your xmaxima says ``set pid 1'' instead of ``set pid "none"'' then your version is out of date. Is there more than one xmaxima on your system?

Andrej  Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20060509 22:06 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=28849 Neat. I think I found the issue. In src/rat3d.lisp, in the function iroot, there's the line (cond ((f< (haulong a) n) (list 1 (sub1 a))) That f< seems to be the problem because n is not a fixnum. Replacing f< with plain < solves both the 2^(1/111...) and a^(10/111....) issue. Someone should look at all of the uses of f<, f+, etc. in rat3*.lisp and replace them with <, +, etc., as needed.

Barton is reporting long times with version 5.9.3 (gcl+win) before ifactor was moved to src and it is not just a delay because of factoring  I interrupted the execution after a couple of minutes. Anyway I will remove the warning that factoring failed. I could also make the code give up sooner. The way things were set up before the factorization was more like testing for small factors rather than trying for complete factorization. Andrej  Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20060508 10:47 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=28849 Interesting. Barton's simplified ratsimp example causes 2 errors with CMUCL because pcetimes1 does f+ with a bignum and palgsimp does f< with a bignum. Replacing these with + and < fixes the issue. However, the ratsimp example causes a warning from cmucl because it wants to compute 1^1932473987149817. This is a cmucl problem, but depending on how smart the Lisp is, it might actually try to compute that power. Finally, for the complicated ratsimp(exp((sqrt ...))) example, I think the real issue is that maxima is trying to simplify the sqrt. If you just enter sqrt(852469675641479773175661572149741); there's a delay before maxima prints out the warning about not finding the factors. Also, factor(852469675641479773175661572149741) spends some time and returns 2 factors: 34130646845983 24976663333933005427. Not sure why there's a warning at all. So I think it used to be fast because sqrt(852...) factor or somebody gave up early and returned sqrt(852...). ifactor works harder before giving up.  Comment By: Robert Dodier (robert_dodier) Date: 20060506 23:03 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=501686 Not sure what's going on here, but maybe the problem is in the factoring code.

Maybe you wanted to do limit(1/x,x,minf). Notice that limit(infinity) > infinity and limit(1/infinity) > 0.

Category: Lisp Core  Integration Group: None >Status: Closed Resolution: None Priority: 5 Submitted By: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: Integration with trigonometric function and following diff Initial Comment: integrate(k*x/f(x),x), knumber, f(x)thrigonometric function  sin(x)^2, cos(x)^2, Sin(x)^3 etc. gives a very poor result. axiom gives a better and short result. following diff(%,x) gives a non simply formula. So, maxima has a problem with a trigonometric function ;)  >Comment By: Barton Willis (willisbl) Date: 20060513 16:27 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=895922 No real bug hereI'm closing the report. Barton  Comment By: Barton Willis (willisbl) Date: 20060501 12:04 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=895922 Maxima uses a constant of integration when it thinks one is really needed: (%i12) integrate(x=1,x); (%o12) x^2/2=x+integrationconstant1 This is a bug listfor a better place to ask questions about how to use Maxima see: http://maxima.sourceforge.net/maximalist.html Barton  Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20060501 11:54 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=28849 Judicious use of logcontract, trigexpand and trigsimp will produce log(44*cos(x)^2)2*x*cos(x)/sin(x). That's pretty comparable to axiom's result. Also, integrate never returns a gratuitious constant of integration, just like tables of integrals never do If you want it, you have to add it yourself.  Comment By: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Date: 20060501 08:19 Message: Logged In: NO Yes, trigsimp was help me, it gives simpler, but not simplest formula. For example, k=2, f(x)=sin(x)^2 integrate(2*x/(sin(x)^2,x) with trigsimp gives a following formula: [{(cos(2x)1)*log(2*cos(x)+2)}+{(cos(2*x)1)*log(22*cos(x))}+2*x*sin(2*x)]/(cos(2*x)1) Simplest result is: 2*(log(sin(x)/2)x*ctg(x)) Or, maxima don't gives (don't can) a simplest result? P.S. By the way, how about C? integrate(x,x) = x^2/2 + C. doble integrate gives a x^3/6 + C*x + c(1)  Comment By: Barton Willis (willisbl) Date: 20060430 06:55 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=895922 Did Maxima give an incorrect result for any of these integrals? Maxima does gives a lengthy formula for integrate(x / sin(x)^2,x), but it seems to be correct: (%i1) integrate(x / sin(x)^2,x)$ (%i2) diff(%,x)  x/sin(x)^2$ (%i3) exponentialize(%)$ (%i4) ratsimp(%); (%o4) 0 In addition to exponentialize and ratsimp, Maxima has functions trigsimp, trigreduce, and trigexpand. Did you try using these functions to convert the antiderivatives into the form you were looking for?
