The context: I am trying to use sage to explore the exponential function assuming all I know about it is that it is its own derivative and has the value 1 at z = 0. It is then easy to develop the Taylor series to any degree using formula like:
expp2( z ) = 1 + ( 1/ factorial( 1 ) )* z + ( 1/ factorial( 2 ) ) * ( z ^ 2 )
You can take 2 of these for z = a and z = b and multiply them together in Sage. Getting something like:
1/4*(b^2 + 2*b + 2)*(a^2 + 2*a + 2)
Now I have done the algebra by hand and know this reduces to the Taylor expansion for z = a + b.
What I do not get is how to show this part in Sage in a nice clean way ( I have some ways I do not like so much ).
Here I have 2 questions one specific, and one general ( I am interested in the answer to either one or both):
1) If this exponential question interests anyone, could you offer some tips? I have tried various ( but not all ) applications of expand and simplify. I am still plugging away.
2) Is there a guide that would help me learn how to carry out algebraic operations over complex expressions. I have looked at several basic tutorials, but they do not have much detail. The most useful single resource I have found is
http://www.sagemath.org/doc/reference/sage/symbolic/expression.html
and the pages linking from it.

I'd like to view the plot of the real portion of `(1+x*I)^(1+5*I)`. I've tried the following in sage:
`plot(((.5+x*I)^(1+5*I)).real(),(x,0,5))` but I keep getting cannot convert symbolic expression to numeric value.
Honestly, I'd actually like to integrate the expression with respect to x on some arbitrary real interval. That kept giving errors as well when I tried to use integral_numerical.
Can anyone help me? I am running the newest edition of sage, as I updated two days ago.
Thanks,

But even when I try to force the domain to be complex, I always get `x.conjugate().simplify() == x`. Why? See also below:
sage: t1,t2,t4 = var("t1 t2 t4")
sage: t2.conjugate().simplify()
t2
sage: t1,t2,t4 = var("t1 t2 t4", domain="complex")
sage: t2
t2
sage: t2.is_real()
False
sage: t2.conjugate().simplify()
t2
sage: (t2.real()*2 - t2).simplify()
t2
sage: t2.real().simplify()
t2
sage: t2.imag().simplify()

I hope their is an easy answer. Thanks, nonlinearDionysusSat, 11 May 2013 16:46:41 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/10115/complex conjugate of a variablehttp://ask.sagemath.org/question/8887/complex-conjugate-of-a-variable/I attempted to construct the complex conjugate of a variable thus -
x = var('x')
f = x*conjugate(x)
f({x:2+2i})
this throws a SyntaxError, although the `f({x:2})` case works perfectly.

Cython was key, pure python was way too slow.
But I'd like to create an interact: write the polynomial and watch the fractal. The problem is the user should enter the polynomial in a text box as a symbolic expression, then I should send that to cython and the cython code should do the rest, calling that function when necessary.
I've managed to do so: I create a fast_callable on the expression, and pass the output of fast_callable to cython, but it is **very slow**. Unfortunately, I cannot make the different data types for complex numbers match, and there might be something else.
Maybe you can think of a different approach...pangTue, 17 Jan 2012 00:32:36 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8632/
