Sage Interactions

Post code that demonstrates the use of the interact command in Sage here. It should be easy to just scroll through and paste examples out of here into their own sage notebooks.If you have suggestions on how to improve interact, add them [:interactSuggestions: here] or email [email protected].


Profile a snippet of code

html('<h2>Profile the given input</h2>')
import cProfile; import profile
def _(cmd = ("Statement", '2 + 2'), 
      do_preparse=("Preparse?", True), cprof =("cProfile?", False)):
    if do_preparse: cmd = preparse(cmd)
    print "<html>"  # trick to avoid word wrap
    if cprof:
    print "</html>"


Evaluate a bit of code in a given system

by William Stein (there is no way yet to make the text box big):

def _(system=selector([('sage0', 'Sage'), ('gp', 'PARI'), ('magma', 'Magma')]), code='2+2'):
    print globals()[system].eval(code)


A Random Walk

by William Stein

html('<h1>A Random Walk</h1>')
vv = []; nn = 0
def foo(pts = checkbox(True, "Show points"), 
        refresh = checkbox(False, "New random walk every time"),
        steps = (50,(10..500))):
    # We cache the walk in the global variable vv, so that
    # checking or unchecking the points checkbox doesn't change
    # the random walk. 
    html("<h2>%s steps</h2>"%steps)
    global vv
    if refresh or len(vv) == 0:
        s = 0; v = [(0,0)]
        for i in range(steps): 
             s += random() - 0.5
             v.append((i, s)) 
        vv = v
    elif len(vv) != steps:
        # Add or subtract some points
        s = vv[-1][1]; j = len(vv)
        for i in range(steps - len(vv)):
            s += random() - 0.5
        v = vv[:steps]
        v = vv
    L = line(v, rgbcolor='#4a8de2')
    if pts: L += points(v, pointsize=10, rgbcolor='red')
    show(L, xmin=0, figsize=[8,3])


3D Random Walk

def rwalk3d(n=(50,1000), frame=True):
    pnt = [0,0,0]
    v = [copy(pnt)]
    for i in range(n):
        pnt[0] += random()-0.5
        pnt[1] += random()-0.5
        pnt[2] += random()-0.5
