 Post subject: Using solve with a complex base ring
PostPosted: Mon Jan 08, 2018 5:11 pm 
In the manual, it says that the
Code:
solve
function assumes that the base ring is either complex or without parameters. However, when I try to use the
Code:
solve
function with a complex base ring, I get the error that "basering has parameters". Should I be defining my base ring differently, or does
Code:
solve
not work with a complex base ring?

Code:
LIB "solve.lib";
ring r = complex, (x,y), dp;
ideal I = ((x-5)*y+16)/32, y^2-x^3-5*x-10;
solve(I);

Download
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Singular/Sources/spielwiese/Singular/LIB/triang.lib
and substitute your triang.lib with it.
(or apply the fix:

Wonderful, thank you!

Should charstr(r) be charstr(basering)?

Yes, the correct fix is
https://github.com/Singular/Sources/commit/a5506e9bcabe897f284fb0d9c22069461daa5b74,
as the routines of triang.lib MAY require factorization of polynomials
which is not implemented for complex (i.e. inexact) coeffcients.
