Perhaps the same should be true of expressions whose top level is an arithmetic operator, e.g. if x+1 then ... if 1/x then ... but I suppose the arithmetic operators could be overloaded (using pattern matching) to return boolean results in some cases. I ran into this problem when I mistakenly assumed that Maxima followed the Lisp convention that nonfalse was true: if assoc(x,'[["+",""],["*","//"]]) then ... when x was "+". Instead of getting an error message, I got an unevaluated conditional if "" then ... which made no sense at all.

Since the original Fortran QUADPACK functions accept an absolute error argument, all that Maxima quadpack need to do is to pass the argument. Changing title of this report accordingly.  Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20071217 07:58 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=28849 Originator: NO Maxima says integrate(legendre_p(2,x),x,0,1) is 0. quad_qag says [2.0e17, 4.28e15, 31, 2]. That is, the integral is 2e17. The abnormal return code is 2, which is excessive roundoff. I think this is correct because the default relative error is 1e8 but the absolute error is 0. I think quad_qag (and friends) probably should allow another arg to let the user specify the desired absolute error. And quad_qag probably shouldn't set the absolute error to 0; perhaps something more like doublefloatepsilon (about 1e16) should be used instead.

Category: Lisp Core  Integration Group: None Status: Open Resolution: None Priority: 5 Private: No Submitted By: Robert Dodier (robert_dodier) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: MONSTERTRIG endless recursion Initial Comment: MONSTERTRIG tries to reduce some trig expressions and start over. However I've encountered an expression for which the attempted reduction has no effect, so it loops endlessly. e.g. trace (integrate, ?monstertrig); integrate (x*(cos(2*x) + sin(x)), x); => 1 Enter integrate [x*(cos(2*x)+sin(x)),x] 1 Enter ?monstertrig [x*(cos(2*x)+sin(x)),x,x] 1 Exit ?monstertrig false 1 Enter ?monstertrig [x*(cos(2*x)+sin(x)),x,2*x] 2 Enter integrate [?new\var\15974*(cos(?new\var\15974) +sin(?new\var\15974/2)) /2,?new\var\15974] 2 Enter ?monstertrig [?new\var\15974*(cos(?new\var\15974) +sin(?new\var\15974/2)),?new\var\15974, ?new\var\15974/2] 3 Enter integrate [2*?new\var\15975 *(cos(2*?new\var\15975)+sin(?new\var\15975)), ?new\var\15975] 3 Enter ?monstertrig [?new\var\15975*(cos(2*?new\var\15975) +sin(?new\var\15975)),?new\var\15975, ?new\var\15975] 3 Exit ?monstertrig false ... etc etc. Here's the relevant code from MONSTERTRIG (src/sin.lisp). ;; We have trig(c*x+b). Use the substitution y=c*x+b to ;; try to compute the integral. Why? Because x*sin(n*x) ;; takes longer and longer as n gets larger and larger. ;; This is caused by the Risch integrator. This is a ;; workaround for this issue. (let ((c (cdras 'c arg)) (b (cdras 'b arg)) (newvar (gensym "NEWVAR"))) (let ((newint (div ($integrate (maximasubstitute (div (sub newvar b) c) var exp) newvar) c))) (returnfrom monstertrig (maximasubstitute *trigarg* newvar newint))))) risch has no trouble with the example shown above, although the comments in MONSTERTRIG suggest risch has trouble in some cases.

I am using Macintosh iBook G4 running MaxOS 10.5.1(Leopard). I found a single problem in a shell script maxima/doc/info/extract_categories.sh The "make instlal" stage failed finally and I traced its origin in the log file of the command. The error came from a line in the above shell script. I changed the script as follows:  *** extract_categories.sh.org Thu Dec 6 02:36:05 2007  extract_categories.sh Thu Dec 27 14:11:40 2007 *************** *** 9,15 **** TARGET_TEXI=$TARGET.texi WORKING_DIRECTORY=`mktemp d /tmp/maximatexinfocategoriesXXXXXX` ! cp a *.texi figures $WORKING_DIRECTORY d=`pwd` cd $WORKING_DIRECTORY  9,15  TARGET_TEXI=$TARGET.texi WORKING_DIRECTORY=`mktemp d /tmp/maximatexinfocategoriesXXXXXX` ! cp pR *.texi figures $WORKING_DIRECTORY d=`pwd` cd $WORKING_DIRECTORY  This is because cp(1) on MacOSX does not have the option "a". To inspect the meaning of the option "a" for cp(1), I read man page for cp(1) on a Linux box. It is written as a, archive same as dpR The options "p" and "R" for cp(1) are commmon on MacOSX and the flavor (linux ?) of UNIX that the developers of Maxima are using. However, the option "d" does not exist on MacOSX. The option "d" for cp(1) is described on Linux as d, nodereference never follow symbolic links The option "d" for cp(1) on Linux corresponds to the option "P" for cp(1) on MacOSX. I suspect that the option "d" on Linux or "P" on MacOSX is unnecessary in the current case. I accordingly changed the shell script extract_categories.sh as the above diff file describes. If the option "d" is necessary in actual, please write by yourself an appropriate code in the shell script extract_categories.sh without using the option "a" for cp(1). If this problem is fixed, Maxima users on MacOSX become more happier. So, please fix this problem. Thank you. Sincerely yours, Satoshi Adachi P.S. I have confirmed that the two bugs which I reproted several weeks ago, 1845370 "Division by 0 in solve()" and 1845375 "factcomb() in 5.13.0 gives wrong result", are now fiexed in the CVS version of Maxima. Thank you for your fixes.  >Comment By: Robert Dodier (robert_dodier) Date: 20071229 10:25 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=501686 Originator: NO Thanks for this report. I have changed "cp a" to "cp R" in r1.6 doc/info/extract_categories.sh. Closing this report as fixed. I am a curious, however, as to why extract_categories.sh was run. The maximannn.tar.gz distribution contains all of the generated html files, does it not? So I don't think make install should try to run extract_categories.sh.

You can reproduce more simply by just calling tan(%pi/2), trigexpand; I'm trying to work out what the functions are _supposed_ to do. Maybe then I'll be able to fix it!

The problem was the incorrect translation of "for x in L while ... do", not a problem with mnot or mprogn.

Category: None Group: None Status: Open Resolution: None Priority: 5 Private: No Submitted By: Satoshi Adachi (satoshi_adachi) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: Do not use the option a for cp(1) in extract_categories.sh Initial Comment: Dear Developers of Maxima, Today, I built maxima5.14.0cvs from its CVS source over the base Lisp system gcl2.6.7withmymodification. I am using Macintosh iBook G4 running MaxOS 10.5.1(Leopard). I found a single problem in a shell script maxima/doc/info/extract_categories.sh The "make instlal" stage failed finally and I traced its origin in the log file of the command. The error came from a line in the above shell script. I changed the script as follows:  *** extract_categories.sh.org Thu Dec 6 02:36:05 2007  extract_categories.sh Thu Dec 27 14:11:40 2007 *************** *** 9,15 **** TARGET_TEXI=$TARGET.texi WORKING_DIRECTORY=`mktemp d /tmp/maximatexinfocategoriesXXXXXX` ! cp a *.texi figures $WORKING_DIRECTORY d=`pwd` cd $WORKING_DIRECTORY  9,15  TARGET_TEXI=$TARGET.texi WORKING_DIRECTORY=`mktemp d /tmp/maximatexinfocategoriesXXXXXX` ! cp pR *.texi figures $WORKING_DIRECTORY d=`pwd` cd $WORKING_DIRECTORY  This is because cp(1) on MacOSX does not have the option "a". To inspect the meaning of the option "a" for cp(1), I read man page for cp(1) on a Linux box. It is written as a, archive same as dpR The options "p" and "R" for cp(1) are commmon on MacOSX and the flavor (linux ?) of UNIX that the developers of Maxima are using. However, the option "d" does not exist on MacOSX. The option "d" for cp(1) is described on Linux as d, nodereference never follow symbolic links The option "d" for cp(1) on Linux corresponds to the option "P" for cp(1) on MacOSX. I suspect that the option "d" on Linux or "P" on MacOSX is unnecessary in the current case. I accordingly changed the shell script extract_categories.sh as the above diff file describes. If the option "d" is necessary in actual, please write by yourself an appropriate code in the shell script extract_categories.sh without using the option "a" for cp(1). If this problem is fixed, Maxima users on MacOSX become more happier. So, please fix this problem. Thank you. Sincerely yours, Satoshi Adachi P.S. I have confirmed that the two bugs which I reproted several weeks ago, 1845370 "Division by 0 in solve()" and 1845375 "factcomb() in 5.13.0 gives wrong result", are now fiexed in the CVS version of Maxima. Thank you for your fixes.  You can respond by visiting: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=104933&aid=1858797&group_id=4933

Comment By: Rupert Swarbrick (rswarbrick) Date: 20071227 02:38 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=1673565 Originator: NO So the first thing that's wrong is that %piargstan/cot shouldn't return nonnil for stuff like tan(pi/2) as they aren't defined, let alone simplifiable. Here's an amended and reformatted version with variables renamed and a possible bug due to reuse of variable names eliminated too (I think) (defun %piargstan/cot (x) (displa x) (let ((coeff (linearize (coefficient x '$%pi 1))) (zlrem (coefficient x '$%pi 0)) (sinofcoeffpi) (cosofcoeffpi)) (cond ((and (zerop1 zlrem) (setq sinofcoeffpi (%piargs coeff nil)) (not (zerop1 (setq cosofcoeffpi (%piargs (cons (car coeff) (rplus 1//2 (cdr coeff))) nil))))) ;; sinofcoeffpi and cosofcoeffpi are only nonnil if they ;; are constants that %piargsoffset could compute, and we just ;; checked that cosofcoeffpi was nonzero.

Comment By: Rupert Swarbrick (rswarbrick) Date: 20071226 01:10 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=1673565 Originator: NO Hi, a bit more information: the error's caused by a (div 1 0) which gets returned in %piargstan/cot, called by simp%tan. You can reproduce more simply by just calling tan(%pi/2), trigexpand; I'm trying to work out what the functions are _supposed_ to do. Maybe then I'll be able to fix it!
