2018-01-29 08:18:14 -0500 | commented question | Is there CUDA support in Sage? You can probably "sage -pip" install pytorch, theano, caffe, tensorflow, etc, within the sage environment. pytorch for instance installs very smoothly: http://pytorch.org/ ... but that wouldn't be very integrated. I don't think you should expect symbolic integration or group theory in the GPU for some time. |

2017-08-08 13:58:36 -0500 | asked a question | Can I generate 3D plots in isometric projection? I'd like to show some plots in isometric projection. For certain plots, it's not hard to project the lines manually and do a 2d plot, but ideally, I'd like to rotate the plot with the mouse, and be able to show any 3d plot in isometric projection: do you know a way? |

2016-10-26 12:15:41 -0500 | commented question | Using sage for slideshows/presentations This thread is a bit old. These days the jupyter notebook has some reveal.js integration available when we use sage --notebook=jupyter. However it is not trivial to use. Should I ask for a sage tutorial for this feature here, or in a new question? |

2015-12-01 05:16:28 -0500 | commented answer | Reformulation of a semialgebraic set, without quantifiers I had problems installing sage from source, but I finally did it, and qepcap installed without problems. Thanks again, Thierry! |

2015-11-24 04:20:21 -0500 | asked a question | Convert sagews into sws A colleague asked if it is possible to convert from sagews into sws, so that he can use the notebooks that his students create on Sage Cloud. I have found a sage-cloud thread which mentions this quick script. My motivations for writing this questions are: - I thought ask.sagemath.org should have an answer to that question
- There will be better ways in the future
- There may be better ways now!
So feel free to contribute and keep this question up to date! PD: For the record, sws files are compressed tar files that you can decompress with |

2015-10-28 09:33:01 -0500 | commented answer | Reformulation of a semialgebraic set, without quantifiers I do have a trac account. I'll try first with a fresh sage install. My current sage install is old, and has been updated several times. I'll need a few days: if it works I'll comment here, and if it doesn't I'll fill a bug. Regards! |

2015-10-28 06:27:21 -0500 | commented question | Reformulation of a semialgebraic set, without quantifiers For the record: I couldn't get qepcad to make a projection of codimension 2 using even 4 points, but I did get some significant results by restricting to a three dimensional space, so that qepcad only projects along lines. |

2015-10-28 04:57:48 -0500 | answered a question | Difference of performance bewteen a core i5 and core i7? If you plan to take exams and/or work with novices, I'd say it's worth it. It's not easy to jail each process and give it limited resources. If X students write an infinite loop, you server will collapse. The more threads and RAM you have, the greater X can get. If you divide the available RAM into the total number of students, you're wasting resources, it's better to estimate the number of students that can write an infinite loop that appends to a list, and not hit interrupt and/or restart on time. In my experience, the probability of a student blowing the server is higher on a exam than on a regular class, and it's higher in combinatorics or number theory, average on linear algebra, lower on calculus (unless the exercise involves symbolic integration of non-trivial functions). |

2015-10-28 04:45:07 -0500 | answered a question | How can i set up a server that uses several computers? Old question, but still: have you looked at the code from the Sage cloud: https://github.com/sagemathinc/smc The Sage cloud seems to be actually easier to install in several machines than in only one >:O ! |

2015-10-28 04:36:28 -0500 | commented answer | Reformulation of a semialgebraic set, without quantifiers I have bug traces etc: should I open a ticket? |

2015-10-28 04:26:32 -0500 | marked best answer | Reformulation of a semialgebraic set, without quantifiers According to wikipedia:
That's great, and my question is if it can be done in practice, in a particular case. I have read that the original Tarski–Seidenberg algorithm is of little practical use, but maybe my problem is tractable with another algorithm: We have a finite set of points in C^2 (z_i,w_i), and I want to project onto the first C coordinate the intersection of the cones {(z,w): |z-z_i|>|w-w_i|}. It would be awesome, for example for plotting the set, if I could actually get the polynomial inequalities that define the projection. Getting only the higher dimensional strata is fine (an open set in C). Any idea? Thanks in advance. |

2015-10-28 04:26:30 -0500 | commented answer | Reformulation of a semialgebraic set, without quantifiers I get a "RuntimeError: unable to start QEPCAD". I upgraded to sage 6.9 with and I installed qepcad with The first upgrade reported errors when building the html docs, but nothing else, and everything seems to work fine. The installation of qepcad produced no errors (I think), and there are qepcad and saclib folders in sage/pkgs. |

2015-10-27 10:19:49 -0500 | commented answer | Reformulation of a semialgebraic set, without quantifiers I downloaded the program and I'm calling it from the command line. I can't get it to work on any non-trivial example (it does work with all the examples from its documentation).
