I wrote down a one liner to define residue but the limiting part takes a huge amount of memory for a moderately big rational function in several variables. I am looking for other methods now. |

2018-12-17 13:36:26 -0500 | commented answer | Roots of multivariable polynomials with respect to one variable? Thank you @rburing. Yes, the roots are instantaneous. I am working on the residues now. I will let you know if I have further questions. |

2018-12-16 16:32:23 -0500 | asked a question | Roots of multivariable polynomials with respect to one variable? This question was previously titled "Finding residues of a huge multivariable rational function." From my understanding, when computing with huge rational functions, we shouldn't use symbolic variables. However, I don't see how to find roots and residues without symbolic variables. Here is a small scale example of the issue. I have a rational function that looks like below: $f(u_1,x_1,u_2,x_2,u_3,x_3) = \frac{1}{{\left(u_{1} u_{2} u_{3} - x_{1} x_{2} x_{3}\right)} {\left(u_{1} u_{2} u_{3} - 1\right)} {\left(u_{1} u_{2} - x_{1} x_{2}\right)} {\left(u_{1} u_{2} - 1\right)} {\left(u_{1} - x_{1}\right)} {\left(u_{1} - 1\right)}}$ First I want to solve for $u_1$ in the denominator and find those roots (poles) that have $x_1$ as below. Then I will loop through the roots and compute the residue of $f$ w.r.t. $u_1$ at those poles. The output is Then we choose those roots that have $x1$ Finally, we find the residue of $f$ w.r.t $u1$ of the rational function at the poles containing $x1.$ The output is then Then I replace $f$ with $ans1$ to continue to do the same process w.r.t $u2$ and poles containing $x2$ and finally w.r.t $u3$ and poles containing $x3.$ However, this consumes about 800GB of memory on an HPC when I feed it a larger rational function. Is there a way to find roots of multivariable polynomials with respect to one variable? residue of a rational function avoiding symbolic variables?
Both .roots() and .residue() are not defined for rational functions that are not defined in terms of symbolic variables. |

2016-02-27 08:58:07 -0500 | commented answer | Representation as sums of squares built-in function @slelievre, thank you so much. I installed mathematica 10.3(latest issue) and was not able to call mathematica even if I followed all the instructions on how to use mathematica within sage. From what I read around the web, I have to downgrade to version 8 to be able to interface to mathematica from within Sage. Is that true or am I missing something with integrating version 10.3? |

2016-02-23 17:59:14 -0500 | commented answer | calling mathematica 9.0 in sage @Emmanuel, is there a follow up to your answer? I have Mathematica 10.3 and I have the following error "unable to start mathematica" |

2016-02-22 12:26:42 -0500 | commented answer | Representation as sums of squares built-in function @slelievre, thank you! I have confused my self a lot and I was actually looking for a built in function that outputs r_k(n) which is the number of ways of writing a given number n as a sum of k-squares. For instance r_4(1) = 8. There is SquaresR[] built-in function in Mathematica but I can't interface to it within Sage. Is there such a built-in function in Sage? |

2016-02-22 11:58:43 -0500 | asked a question | Representation as sums of squares built-in function Is there a Sage implementation of writing a number as a sum of k squares for any k as described in the ticket here: trac.sagemath.org/ticket/16308 ?
