2014-12-03 01:13:52 -0500 asked a question Unable to build documentation (ValueError: unknown locale: UTF-8)

When I try to build the sage documentation I get an error. What am I doing wrong? The same error appears when I try

make doc-clean && make

Here is a transcript:

2014-10-31 11:56:08 -0500 commented answer Trouble importing groups from GAP

@vdelecroix Thanks. Am I correct in concluding that wrapping them to Sage objects in such a way that all the methods work uniformly will require quite a bit of work?

2014-10-29 13:25:52 -0500 commented answer Trouble importing groups from GAP

Thanks. So there is no easy way to iterate over isomorphism classes of groups of a given order? I don't really care about their actions. I just need access to methods like centralizer and conjugacy_classes.

2014-10-29 03:22:29 -0500 asked a question Trouble importing groups from GAP

I would like to use groups from the GAP library in Sage; something like:

sage: L = gap.AllGroups(16)
sage: G = PermutationGroup(gap_group = L[1])

and use G in my sage code. But I must be doing something wrong, becuase I get:

This answer is community wiki; please add your points here (please provide commands/links on how to do this)

  1. run doctests (sage -t filename.py)
  2. build and check documentation (sage -docbuild all html)

@fidelbc Thanks for the comments, and bringing MongoDB to my attention.

2013-04-18 23:37:00 -0500 marked best answer Generating a unique file name for each graph

The set of graphs Sage can produce is virtually infinite (depends on your RAM), whereas a hash is a uniformly bounded number. Hence there can not be an injection between them (see e.g. wikipedia).

However, a hash function is assumed to be quite "mixing", so that the probability to get a collision is close to the estimation given by the birthday paradox (see e.g. wikipedia). Hence, unless your graph database is very huge, you can consider that you won't get a collision (or that the number of useless recalculations will be very small).

That said, especially for simple graphs with less than 262143 vertices, there is a compact ASCII representation (which is injective), given by the method .graph6_string():

sage: G = graphs.PetersenGraph()
sage: G.graph6_string()
'IheA@GUAo'

The hash method seems faster.

Thanks. This was both enlightening and useful.

2013-04-18 22:52:38 -0500 asked a question Generating a unique file name for each graph

I am writing a function whose input is a graph and some other data. I would like to store the computations that this program does each time it is run in a file with one file for each graph, so that, the next time it is run, it need not recalculate the calculations it has already done. In order to do this, I would like to assign a unique file name to each graph. I was thinking of using the hash function of the combinatorial object constructed from the graph to generate file names: CombinatorialObject(G).__hash__()

I have two questions:

  1. Will this always work (the function taking a graph to this hash is well-defined and injective)?

  2. Is there a better way to do this?

2013-03-25 20:15:40 -0500 marked best answer How to get a Boolean from the type of an object?

For matrices, I don't know, this is a complex topic in Sage. For tuples of pairs, this is pure Python, and I suggest:

def is_a_pair(a):
    return isinstance(a,tuple) and len(a)==2
def is_a_tuple_of_pairs(A):
    if not isinstance(A,tuple):
        return False
    return all (is_a_pair(a) for a in A)

Note that if you accept lists in addition to tuples, you can use:

isinstance(a,(list,tuple))

inside these functions and so on.

2013-03-25 20:15:32 -0500 commented answer How to get a Boolean from the type of an object?

Thanks Bétréma; it seems I can also use `isinstance(A, type(matrix()))` to check if something is a matrix (though I am not sure if this is the best way).

2013-03-22 01:02:18 -0500 asked a question How to get a Boolean from the type of an object?

I am trying to define the __init__ of a class, where I would like to support different types of input; in my case the input could be a either a list of pairs or a matrix. How do I write a Boolean function to test which kind of input I have? In the example code, I want to know how I should define the Boolean functions is_a_matrix(A) and is_a_tuple_of_pairs(A) (and of course more generally testing A to be of some other type)

class someclass():
    def __init__(self, A):
        if is_a_matrix(A):
            self._matrix = A
        if is_a_tuple_of_pairs(A):
            self._matrix = somefunction(A)
