GSoC 2020 - Week 628 Jun 2020
highlights of this week’s work are:
Recursion Errorsin limit evaluations were mainly due to the fact that the indeterminant form of
1**oowas not handled accurately in the
mrv()function of the
Gruntz algorithm. So, some minor changes were required to fix those.
The major issue was to handle those cases which were timing out. On deep digging, we identified that the
polytools.pywas the reason. Thus, we decided to completely transform the
cancel()function to speed up its algorithm. Now after this major modification, many testcases were failing as the
cancel()function plays an important role in simplifying evaluations and is thus used at many places across the codebase. Therefore, a lot of time was spent in debugging and rectifying these testcases.
Finally we were able to merge this, enhancing the limit evaluation capabilities of
