Argh, we cannot return Unknown from bool() because of Python. Still, we can avoid calling Maxima for numeric questions: https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/24658 This is a really tiny ticket and should be easy to review. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups

### [sage-devel] Re: Bug in positivity test of a real expression

I think we should refrain from calling Maxima with bool(...) because our tests are good enough. Moreover with https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/24345 we could then simply return Unknown. Please review. On Monday, February 5, 2018 at 8:12:49 AM UTC+1, Ralf Stephan wrote: > > Actually Sage's logic

### [sage-devel] Re: Bug in positivity test of a real expression

Actually Sage's logic is fine here, the bug with bool(val>0) is in Maxima.The default with bool(relation) is to use RIF and at the default setting it cannot decide, so ultimately Maxima is called: (%i2) is (%pi-(1116521080257783321*2^(23/2))/1029347477390786609545>0); (%o2)
