2011-08-15 10:32:38 -0500 commented answer bug in minimal polynomials of finite fields

Thanks! (Are you a Sage developer? Should I consider the bug reported?)

2011-08-15 08:30:28 -0500 asked a question bug in minimal polynomials of finite fields

In a compiled version of 4.7 (64 bit, Debian Sid), I get:

| Sage Version 4.7, Release Date: 2011-05-23                         |
| Type notebook() for the GUI, and license() for information.        |
sage: F.<a>=GF(2^64)          
sage: a.minpoly()
_3 = x^64 + x^33 + x^30 + x^26 + x^25 + x^24 + x^23 + x^22 + x^21 + x^20 + x^18 + x^13 + x^12 + x^11 + x^10 + x^7 + x^5 + x^4 + x^2 + x + 1
sage: K.<b>=GF(2^128)
sage: b.minpoly()
_5 = x^128 + x^7 + x^2 + x + 1
sage: a.minpoly()
_6 = x^128 + x^7 + x^2 + x + 1

Is this a bug or am I doing something stupid?

Thanks. I've compiled it from source successfully.

2011-05-27 04:48:59 -0500 asked a question Fedora 14 binary

Dear all,

I just installed sage-4.7-linux-64bit-fedora_release_14_laughlin_-x86_64-Linux.tar.lzma on my computer running Fedora 14:

boole[~]$ uname -a

Linux #1 SMP Fri Apr 22 16:01:29 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

But I'm getting the following error:

ImportError: /usr/lib64/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by /work/local/sage-4.7/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/sage/rings/finite_rings/
Error importing ipy_profile_sage - perhaps you should run %upgrade?
WARNING: Loading of ipy_profile_sage failed.

I do get a prompt but

sage: 2+2
NameError                                 Traceback (most recent call last)

/work/local/sage-4.7/local/bin/<ipython console> in <module>()

NameError: name 'Integer' is not defined

Can this be fixed or should I just compile it from source.

Thanks. That works (of course). It is too bad that the syntax is not uniform...

2011-03-28 11:41:32 -0500 asked a question no linewidth with parametric plot

It seems that there is no option for linewidth in parametric_plot. (2D in my case.) Is that true? Any way to make the graph thicker?

Thanks Evgeny. I hadn't noticed the code buttom...

Thanks! This worked perfectly.

I am trying to install from source version 4.6. The computer is a Dell server running Fedora 11.

Maybe I am missing something really simple, but shouldn't one be able to plot prime_pi?
