2013-02-15 13:05:04 -0500 | asked a question | How does one find solutions to a polynomial over a finite field? I'm trying to find the solutions to the polynomial $y^2=x^3+1$ over $\mathbb{F}_5$. I have constructed the correct polynomial ring, but I don't know what the analogous function to .roots() is for the two variable case. Thanks |

2012-10-21 07:10:03 -0500 | marked best answer | Trying to display the roots of a polynomial over a finite field Sage allows you to construct finite fields with a root of any irreducible polynomial as a generator. Thus |

2012-10-20 17:20:48 -0500 | asked a question | Trying to display the roots of a polynomial over a finite field So I'm trying to use the .roots() command on a polynomial over the quotient ring F_2[x]/x^5 + x^2 + 1, which is a field isomorphic to F_32. But it keeps giving me the following error: NotImplementedError: root finding with multiplicities for this polynomial not implemented (try the multiplicities=False option) Is there a way to get this to work? Thanks |

2012-03-12 14:22:32 -0500 | commented answer | How to save a function in sage Yes a lambda function was what I had in mind. Could you extrapolate on how to create these python modules and load them into your sage session, I've been unsuccessful so far using the info I've found online. |

2012-03-12 08:54:04 -0500 | asked a question | How to save a function in sage I have a function in sage I want to save, but I cannot figure out how. I'm running sage on a mac through the terminal. I'm finding stuff online about save_session, or saving to a document.sage file or something but nothing really seems to be working, is there a straightforward way to do this? Thanks. Edit: Also while I have your attention, say you have a function f, how do you display the contents of f without actually running it? |

2012-03-02 14:24:53 -0500 | asked a question | Aborting a Loop Say I have a function which runs a while loop which always evaluates as true and thus keeps running, is there a way to abort this without just closing the terminal all together? Thanks. |

2012-01-29 09:49:58 -0500 | marked best answer | Sage is refusing to simplify an element of the symbolic ring to an integer Not every method -- i.e. a function which lives inside an object -- has a function form. What I mean is that you can write sqrt(2), because sqrt is a function, and you could also write 2.sqrt(), but not everything is paired up like that. This holds for simplify too. There In sage, lots of functionality lives inside objects like this. If you type you'll see a bunch of possibilities. If you type you can see the docs for it (and two ?? show the code.) All of that is a long-winded way to bring us here: |

2012-01-29 09:49:47 -0500 | commented answer | Sage is refusing to simplify an element of the symbolic ring to an integer oh man great answer, I didn't even know about all that functionality, thanks. |

2012-01-29 09:03:06 -0500 | asked a question | Sage is refusing to simplify an element of the symbolic ring to an integer For example: How can I get sage to simplify ( sqrt(2) + sqrt(3) ) * ( sqrt(2) - sqrt(3) ) to -1? I've tried simplify() but it wont do it. Thanks. |
