I'm fairly new to Sage and Python, so I'm getting into basic problems here that I'd be happy if you could help me out.<br>
Here it is, actually, here they are:
I'm generating a set of equalities and solving them with solve. A simple example:
<blockquote> import numpy as n;<br>m=4;<br>
s = list(var('s_%d' % int(i)) for i in range(m));<br>
eqns=[s_0+s_1==1,s_2-s_3==0];<br>
sol=solve(eqns,s,solution_dict=True)[0]
</blockquote>
This gives the solutions:
<blockquote>
{s_1: -r2 + 1, s_0: r2, s_3: r1, s_2: r1}
</blockquote>
My first question is, how do I create a matrix with the solutions? Say, something like:
<blockquote>M=m.zeros((2,2));<br>
for i in range(2):<br>
for j in range(2):<br>
M[int(i),int(j)] = sol[s[i]]+ sol[s[j+2]]
</blockquote>
This is giving me the error: "TypeError: unable to simplify to float approximation"
My second question, would be, given the array M, how do I split it as r1 times a matrix, plus r2 times another matrix, plus a constant matrix? In the above example,
<blockquote> M= [[1,r1+r2],[r1-r2+1,r1-r2+1]]= r1 [[0,1],[1,1]] + r2 [[0,1],[-1,-1]]+ [[1,0],[0,0]]
</blockquote>
I'm interested in the matrices multiplying the still unknown coefficients. Maybe I should add that the number of equations in the problem I'm solving is much bigger than in this simple example, and therefore I cannot find this matrix decomposition by simply looking at it.<br>
Thanks for the help!
