2013-06-14 17:45:42 +0100 | commented question | Lazy evaluation of derivatives of an unknown function That is what I'm doing for now, but I was thinking it would be convenient to be able to construct the system of pdes with an arbitrary unknown function and then substitute in the trial solutions to check them. I will play with it a bit more and see if I can come up with a better example use case. Thanks! |

2013-06-10 12:27:40 +0100 | asked a question | Lazy evaluation of derivatives of an unknown function Hi, I am using Sage to check some solutions to partial differential equations. I am wondering if a have an unknown function f, can I somehow form the PDE in terms of its derivatives and then substitute in the assumed solution and evaluate the derivatives after the fact? Here is what I tried so far: I figured out that D[0, 1] represents the derivatives with respect to the ith indepent variable of the function (is this a Maxima expression?), but I'm not sure then how to use these types of expressions when I finally want to substitute in the known form of f. I.e., since the output of the expression for g is in terms of D[], and when I try to reuse that expression as h, I get an error (since D is actually some other type of object). Any help would be appreciated. Let me know if my question is not clear. Many thanks! |
