**This page is out of date**, for information on the coercion model, please see the main coercion page.

Merge up at http://cython.org/coercion/hgwebdir.cgi/sage-coerce-3.0.3/ (pull on top of 3.0.3 release candidate) Should build and start without problems.

Hint: If something doesn't work, try typing

sage: coercion_traceback()

which will give a listing of all errors caught in the coercion model.

### Doctests

Done

- integer_mod
- calculus
- catalogue, dsage, media, stats, server, logic, tests, misc
- probability
- monoids
- games
- algebras
- libs
- lfunctions
- quadratic forms
- databases
- sets
- rings/rational
- rings/real_lazy
- finite fields
- structure/formal_sums
- rings/padics
- graphs
- ext
- functions
- complex, real
- numerical
- crypto
- interfaces
- qqbar
- combinat
- gsl
- abelian_grps
- geometry
- groups
- plot
- structure
- modules
- coding
- matrix
- rings

In Progress

- schemes (ncalexan, number field problems in elliptic_curves, padic problems in elliptic_curves, total mayhem in generic)
- modular (craigcitro)
- invalid free in self_orthogonal_binary_codes (robertwb)

To Do

- rings/polynomial
- many segfaults for mhansen, probably due to libsingular invalid read

#3516 libSingular segfault related to the new coercion code [causes segfaults on startup on sage.math]

- categories (category_types.py -- 1 failure due to Spec in schemes)

This should fail: sage: x, y = var('x,y') sage: parent(ZZ[x][y](1)*vector(QQ[y],[1,2])) sage: parent(ZZ[x](1)*vector(QQ[y],[1,2]))

### Files to fix (Make all parents conform to the spec)

Useful script to list all parents in a given module that still need work: list_parents.sage

Nothing to do

- catalogue, dsage, databases, ext, games, media, stats, server, plot, logic, tests lfunctions, misc, numerical,gsl, quadratic_forms

Done

- coding, functions, graphs

complex, real http://sage.math.washington.edu/home/robertwb/coerce/coerce-real-complex.hg

modules coerce-free-module.patch

- quotient rings
- finite fields (including natural embeddings into each other when Conway polynomials are used)
- calculus
- number fields
- sets
- geometry
- libs
- probability
- interfaces
- combinat
- rings
- algebras
- monoids
- schemes (modulo some dependance on Groups)
- crypto

In progress

- groups
- modular

Little to do

- categories

Lots to do

Base classes

- structure

### Coercion doctesting

Comment from William:

teragon:sage was$ sage -coverage categories/action.pyx structure/element.pyx structure/coerce.pyx |grep SCORE SCORE categories/action.pyx: 0% (0 of 22) SCORE structure/element.pyx: 18% (28 of 153) SCORE structure/coerce.pyx: 2% (1 of 39) I tried to understand and use the coercion model code to trac down the issue with #2079 and was amazed at how nonexistent the doctesting and documentation of functions is there. In order for people to write lots of coercion code all of Sage, it's critical that they can read the coercion model code so they can track down -- for themselves -- what is going wrong when they run into trouble. I would put getting the coverage of the above files (and whatever else is related to coercion) up to 100% as the first step in your coercion model stuff. Seriously. And don't say it can't be doctested, since even though there are a lot of things not easily accessible now from the interpreter, such as the coercion model

### Categories to implement

### Old notes

To start, get a copy of Sage 2.10.1, install the latest cython spkg (available at http://sage.math.washington.edu/home/robertwb/cython/), pull from http://cython.org/coercion/hgwebdir.cgi/sage-coerce/ and build.

Import fix-random.patch to sage-scripts to ignore random tests.
