Hello! I found next bug:

var('x, y')
integrate(y, y, 0, 8*log(x))
RuntimeError: ECL says: Error executing code in Maxima: defint: upper
limit of integration must be real; found 8*log(x)

Then I decided to use sympy:

var('x, y')
integrate(y, y, 0, 8*log(x), algorithm='sympy')

Nice! But when I replaced 0 --> 0.5 (int --> real):

var('x, y')
integrate(y, y, 0.5, 8*log(x), algorithm='sympy')
AttributeError: 'sage.rings.real_mpfr.RealLiteral' object has no
attribute '_sympy_'

M.... I opened real_mpfr.pyx and added:

1314 def _sympy_(self):
1315     """
1316     Return sympy object.
1317     AUTHORS: #########################
1318     """
1319     import sympy
1320     return(sympy.symplify(float(self)))

(I added line numbers in my code above and remove authors informations (that is about me)) Then I tryed to load:


And there are many-many errors while compilling... Help me please! Thanks.

Instead of doing load, run

$ /path/to/sage -br

from the terminal. This will compile and install the modified file, and then open a sage prompt for you.

I tried to create a ticket in trac, but it seems there are some problems with disk space. Also, it is a transition period where the workflow is changing to git. After the changes have calmed down, you are encouraged to submit this as a patch to trac.

EDIT: It is ticket 14915

If you want to include your real name, please provide it in the ticket. I will modify the patch.

The ticket is merged since Sage 5.13, so now we have:

sage: var('x, y')
(x, y)
sage: integrate(y, y, 0.5, 8*log(x), algorithm='sympy')
32*log(x)^2 - 0.125000000000000
