GSoC Progress - Week 7Programming · GSoC · SymPy
Hello. Sorry for the really late post. As I was moving from home to Mumbai back and also part of the grading team of International Physics Olympiad(IPhO), I could not contribute as much as I had thought I could. Here is what I have for this week.
Expression class was built upon the initial works of Francesco. I made a SymEngine patch with his as an initial commit. We now have a top-level value class.
The slowdowns finally got tackled. It was Piranha that needed amendment. The slowdown, as discussed previously, was due to the class
thread_pool. This was resolved was templatizing
thread_pool i.e. replace
class thread_pool: private detail::thread_pool_base<> with
template <typename = void> class thread_pool_: private detail::thread_pool_base<>. This basically saw to it that inclusion of individual headers. Including single
piranha.hpp still had this problem. The problem was
settings.hpp, which in turn defines a non-template function called
set_n_threads() which internally invokes the thread pool. This was resolved by a similar fix, the
setting class to
<typename = void> class settings_.
* #511 - Polynomial Wrapper
En route to Polynomial
Targets for Week 8
Polynomial wrapper merged.
Points to be noted:
* Use standard library alternates to Piranha constructs so that we can have something even when there is no Piranha as dependency.
* Basic class in, so that Shivam can start some work in SymEngine.
I am thankful to Ondřej and the
SymEngine team for bearing with my delays. I hope I can compensate in the coming week.
That's all this week.
