2014-06-28 20:15:23 -0500 marked best answer showing an external image in sage notbook

Is there an easy way to show an image stored in local drive (or a website) in sage notebook?

The only way I know is using matplotlib:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import matplotlib.image as mpimg

img=mpimg.imread('<location of image file')
frame = plt.gca()

but, it is a roundabout way and shows the unecessary black border around the image.

2014-06-28 20:15:17 -0500 marked best answer Forming a solid from a set of intersecting planes

suppose I have equations of planes in 3D space in the form:

$A_ix + B_iy + C_iz = D_i$ for some values of i

how can use sage to find the solid enclosed by them? I need a plot of the surface of this solid. Actually I have many such sets of planes each forming a solid like this.(all concentric)

For example:

planes at x = -1, 1 in yz plane; planes at y = -1, 1 in xz plane and planes at z = -1, 1 in xy plane intersect and form a unit cube centred at the origin.

ty ndomes! But, its taking very long. I have like 12 or more equations (seen a maximum of 30 but can be more). I am now thinking of a different approach. We can easily make a function:

def inside(point , planes):
    if the point is inside all the planes:
        return 1
        return 0

so, now is there a good function in sagemath that can show all the region in space for which f(point) gives 1. (yea, its okay if the solids are filled as long as they're transparent enough. . Naively Taking lots of points and finding this solid(Like monte carlo) is very inefficient

Actually the program is taking very long time for these equations.

[-x - y - 1 == 0, -x - z - 1 == 0, -x + z - 1 == 0, -x + y - 1 == 0, -y- z - 1== 0, -y + z - 1 == 0, y - z - 1 == 0, y + z - 1 == 0, x - y - 1== 0, x - z - 1 == 0, x + z - 1 == 0, x + y - 1 == 0]

so, check it once. Thanks!

2014-06-28 20:15:17 -0500 marked best answer sage stopped working suddenly

I didn't do anything to the sage install.(I have upgraded by system yesterday) And suddenly today sage stopped working and this is being displayed.


Unhandled SIGBUS: A bus error occurred in Sage.
This probably occurred because a *compiled* component of Sage has a bug
in it and is not properly wrapped with sig_on(), sig_off(). You might
want to run Sage under gdb with 'sage -gdb' to debug this.
Sage will now terminate.

How can I use sage to fit some points like

to a straight line using method of least squares And make a plot of the points and the line?

how can I plot X and Y? plot(Y, X) returns ValueError: too many values to unpack

And I must also find the average slope. how to find that?

Can sage find complex roots numerically for equations like

cos(cos(cos(cos(x)))) == sin(sin(sin(sin(x))))

if so, how?

2014-06-28 20:14:55 -0500 marked best answer How to make typeset output in sage display properly?

When there are complicated equations , especially with a lot of fractions, the output in sage is bad. Some of it is cut(some lower portion of the output). For example:

2014-06-28 20:14:52 -0500 marked best answer Finding all the roots at once numerically

I want to calculate the roots of equations like

tanh(ax) = x

numerically. But the problem is sage gives option of finding just one root provided I give it the interval where the root may be found.


But sometimes the interval is not so obvious and I need to know all the numerical roots at once (If the number of roots are finite that is). Is There a way to do that?

2014-06-28 20:14:51 -0500 marked best answer creating a fourier series animation

Hello, I want to create an animation of sum((-1)^(n-1)sin(nx)/n,n,1 , k)

and show that as the number of terms 'k' in the partial sums increase, the sum converges to x/2 i.e looks more and more like the graph of x/2.

My first try is

a = animate([(sum((-1)^(n-1)sin(nx)/n,n,1 , k))] for k in range (1,50,1))

But that returns me an error

Traceback (click to the left of this block for traceback) ... AttributeError: 'int' object has no attribute '_maxima_'

Also I want to include a static graph of x/2 in the background of the animation so that it is easy to observe that the series converges to x/2. how to do this?

It seems there isn't a function in sagemath which can plot contours of a function $f(x, y, z)$ as transparent layers in 3d space like in mayavi.

Is there an alternate way to achieve the same effect in sage?
