where $x \in (0,1).$
By fixing $x$ to be a value $x_0 \in (0,1)$, e.g. $x_0 = 1/\pi$, $$h(a, x_0) = h(a, 1/\pi)$$ a function of one variable, and I want to plot a 2D graph of point $(a, h(a, 1/\pi))$, by fixing $n = 2000$, for $a \in [0,1].$
I figure how to calculate the value at one given $a$ using SageMath,
for example, when $a = 1$,
T(x) = 1/x - floor(1/x)
s = 0
for k in xrange(0, 1000):
a = 0
a = nest(T, k, 0.79)
b = abs(a)
c = log(b)
s = s + c
Then $\frac{-2}{1000}s$ give the approximation for the sum when $x = 0.79$, $n = 1000$, $a = 1$.
But for plotting, I think I need to define the function $h(a, x)$ which is a summation over composition of functions. I tried to use `sum` and `symbolic_sum` but failed.
Any help how to achieve this please?PusheenMoewSun, 12 May 2019 19:43:57 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46495/
