# memory leak when doing lots of ideal tests

 3 I'm trying to find elliptic curves lying on a quartic surface; there are probably clever ways to do this, but at the moment I am finding lots of quadrics through an integer point on the surface, then iterating over pairs of them and checking x^4+y^4+z^4-67*t^4 in ideal(f1,f2) This leaks about 2MB memory per second, presumably because the Groebner bases for the ideals are being cached; is there a way to tell sage not to cache them? asked Jan 17 '12 fivemack 55 ● 1 ● 5 I have the same problem now (iterating over some polynomials, the memory for the groebner base is not freed). I'm thinking about filing a bug report. Did you find any solution?Anakonda (Nov 06 '12)
