So, finally after a long summer GSoC has come to an end!! It has been a great experience, and something which I will cherish for the rest of my life. I would like to thank my mentor Sartaj, who has been guiding me through the thick and thin of times. Here are the work done in this week :-
- I wanted to implement a new convergence test,called the
Raabe's test. The description of the test is as follows –
I have already written the crux of the code. And it looks somewhat like this :-
### ----------- Raabe's test ---------------- ### lim_val = Limit(sym * (sequence_term/sequence_term.subs(sym, sym + 1) - S(1)), sym, S.Infinity) val = lim_val.doit() dict_val = sequence_term.match((-1)**(sym + p)*q) if val.is_number and dict_val is None: if val > 1: return S.true if val < 1: return S.false
But this code is making two test cases, which are already documented, fail. I haven’t pushed the code yet, since the tests seem not to pass, and so I am skeptic about the utility this convergence test will bring to SymPy.
- The limit #PR 17381 was facing some merge conflict issues, so I had to fix them. Kalevi had a major comment about the PR, which can be found here. I am pondering over how to change this PR to suit what he has said. I have already asked for help, since I am in a bit of confusion regarding the comment.
That’s it for this week. Thank you SymPy and team for such a wonderful summer. Adios !!!!
