As it says (clearly!) in the documentation, this only works for polynomial equations. It would be useful, I think, if we would give a warning (or an error?) when a nonpolynomial equation were passed to algsys, e.g. (C1) solve(sqrt(a^2+b^2)=0,[a,b]) Warning: Solve/Algsys can only solve for multiple variables when the equations are polynomial. The equation sqrt(a^2+b^2)=0 is not polynomial. (D1) [] This is a common beginner's error, I think, encouraged of course by the fact that the command is called "solve"  you'd think it could solve any simple equation....

But it just answered that correctly! I *am* surprised, I must say, that it doesn't even get is (equal(a,0)) => false since a*b>0 immediately gives you a#0 and b#0. For that matter, assume(not equal (c*d,0)) *does* get is(equal(c,0)) => false. By the way, with those facts, you can deduce that a>0 and b>0, but that would be a feature request, not a bug report.

Further experimentation shows that with assume(a*b): asksign(a*b*c) asks the sign of a*b*c, not just c asksign(a^2*b) asks the sign of a^2*b and most surprisingly asksign atan(a*b) asks the sign of atan(a*b), not just a*b. This one is actually easy to fix: in signoddinc, use sign1 rather than sign. The first two cases can be explained by assuming that it doesn't check the sign of the a*b subexpression, since it doesn't "notice" it as a subexpression. It's not clear how you'd fix that: do you really want signmtimes to check all 2^nn2 subproducts of a lengthn product to see if they're in the database? This will rarely be useful and is expensive. Perhaps the database needs to keep a list of "terms included in products".... There are similar issues with sums. Consider assume (m>n,n>0); sign(mn)=>pos, but sign(mn+1)=>pnz. The original problem can probably be solved by rechecking the sign of the product of the odds before returning from sign1, but you have to be careful to avoid an infinite recursion here.

In this case too, the answer is trivial: since sin(x)1 == 0 , then sin(x)==1 and sin(x)^a == 1 for all a.... taylor(sin(x)^a,a,inf,2); Is SIN(x)  1 positive, negative, or zero? zero; Break: Undefined limit product Error: Format error: arguments exhausted. V "Undefined limit product ~A * ~A in limtimes lim1 lim2" Does the same for f(x) instead of sin(x). The problem appears to be that it doesn't realize that the $zero here is a *constant* zero whereas the $INF is a limiting infinity only. Constant zero * limiting infinity = zero, though of course lmiiting zero * limiting infinity is undefined.

Initial Comment: asksign(a^b); Is a pos neg or zero? neg; => neg It does not ask whether b is an integer, or if it's even or odd!!! I believe the correct behavior is: if b is an even integer => pos if b is an odd integer => neg if b is not an integer, ask user about the sign of a^b directly  I suppose we could ask if b is rational, and if so whether it is even/odd (pos), odd/odd (neg), or odd/even (undefined  is actually complex), but why get into that mess?

Of course, in this example, Expand gives the correct result, but how about b . (b+1)^^n . b or (b+1)^^n . b . (b+1)^^n Expand can't do those.... This is really an enhancement request, not a bug....

In fact, I'm pretty sure the CVS version changed the plot limits for y from a default of +/ 3 to be +/ "number close to largest doublefloat". However, the plot contains 10 line segments, instead of a smooth curve. Probably related to the adaptive plotting stuff.

Some operations nonetheless do distribute over "=", notably diff, taylor, limit, cabs, rectform, realpart, imagpart, etc. integrate is particularly clever, adding an integration constant though mathematical functions such as sin, log, etc. do not.
