[docs]def sympify(a, locals=None, convert_xor=True, strict=False, rational=False): """ Converts an arbitrary expression to a type that can be used inside SymPy. For example, it will convert Python ints into instance of sympy.Rational, floats into instances of sympy.Float, etc. It is also able to coerce symbolic expressions which inherit from Basic. This can be useful in cooperation with SAGE. It currently accepts as arguments: - any object defined in sympy - standard numeric python types: int, long, float, Decimal - strings (like "0.09" or "2e-19") - booleans, including ``None`` (will leave them unchanged) - lists, sets or tuples containing any of the above If the argument is already a type that SymPy understands, it will do nothing but return that value. This can be used at the beginning of a function to ensure you are working with the correct type. >>> from sympy import sympify >>> sympify(2).is_integer True >>> sympify(2).is_real True >>> sympify(2.0).is_real True >>> sympify("2.0").is_real True >>> sympify("2e-45").is_real True If the expression could not be converted, a SympifyError is raised. >>> sympify("x***2") Traceback (most recent call last): ... SympifyError: SympifyError: "could not parse u'x***2'" Locals ------ The sympification happens with access to everything that is loaded by ``from sympy import *``; anything used in a string that is not defined by that import will be converted to a symbol. In the following, the ``bitcout`` function is treated as a symbol and the ``O`` is interpreted as the Order object (used with series) and it raises an error when used improperly: >>> s = 'bitcount(42)' >>> sympify(s) bitcount(42) >>> sympify("O(x)") O(x) >>> sympify("O + 1") Traceback (most recent call last): ... TypeError: unbound method... In order to have ``bitcount`` be recognized it can be imported into a namespace dictionary and passed as locals: >>> ns = {} >>> exec 'from sympy.core.evalf import bitcount' in ns >>> sympify(s, locals=ns) 6 In order to have the ``O`` interpreted as a Symbol, identify it as such in the namespace dictionary. This can be done in a variety of ways; all three of the following are possibilities: >>> from sympy import Symbol >>> ns["O"] = Symbol("O") # method 1 >>> exec 'from sympy.abc import O' in ns # method 2 >>> ns.update(dict(O=Symbol("O"))) # method 3 >>> sympify("O + 1", locals=ns) O + 1 If you want *all* single-letter and Greek-letter variables to be symbols then you can use the clashing-symbols dictionaries that have been defined there as private variables: _clash1 (single-letter variables), _clash2 (the multi-letter Greek names) or _clash (both single and multi-letter names that are defined in abc). >>> from sympy.abc import _clash1 >>> _clash1 {'C': C, 'E': E, 'I': I, 'N': N, 'O': O, 'Q': Q, 'S': S} >>> sympify('C & Q', _clash1) And(C, Q) Strict ------ If the option ``strict`` is set to ``True``, only the types for which an explicit conversion has been defined are converted. In the other cases, a SympifyError is raised. >>> sympify(True) True >>> sympify(True, strict=True) Traceback (most recent call last): ... SympifyError: SympifyError: True Extending --------- To extend ``sympify`` to convert custom objects (not derived from ``Basic``), just define a ``_sympy_`` method to your class. You can do that even to classes that you do not own by subclassing or adding the method at runtime. >>> from sympy import Matrix >>> class MyList1(object): ... def __iter__(self): ... yield 1 ... yield 2 ... raise StopIteration ... def __getitem__(self, i): return list(self)[i] ... def _sympy_(self): return Matrix(self) >>> sympify(MyList1()) Matrix([ [1], [2]]) If you do not have control over the class definition you could also use the ``converter`` global dictionary. The key is the class and the value is a function that takes a single argument and returns the desired SymPy object, e.g. ``converter[MyList] = lambda x: Matrix(x)``. >>> class MyList2(object): # XXX Do not do this if you control the class! ... def __iter__(self): # Use _sympy_! ... yield 1 ... yield 2 ... raise StopIteration ... def __getitem__(self, i): return list(self)[i] >>> from sympy.core.sympify import converter >>> converter[MyList2] = lambda x: Matrix(x) >>> sympify(MyList2()) Matrix([ [1], [2]]) Notes ===== Sometimes autosimplification during sympification results in expressions that are very different in structure than what was entered. Until such autosimplification is no longer done, the ``kernS`` function might be of some use. In the example below you can see how an expression reduces to -1 by autosimplification, but does not do so when ``kernS`` is used. >>> from sympy.core.sympify import kernS >>> from sympy.abc import x >>> -2*(-(-x + 1/x)/(x*(x - 1/x)**2) - 1/(x*(x - 1/x))) - 1 -1 >>> s = '-2*(-(-x + 1/x)/(x*(x - 1/x)**2) - 1/(x*(x - 1/x))) - 1' >>> sympify(s) -1 >>> kernS(s) -2*(-(-x + 1/x)/(x*(x - 1/x)**2) - 1/(x*(x - 1/x))) - 1 """ try: cls = a.__class__ except AttributeError: # a is probably an old-style class object cls = type(a) if cls in sympy_classes: return a if cls in (bool, type(None)): if strict: raise SympifyError(a) else: return a try: return converter[cls](a) except KeyError: for superclass in getmro(cls): try: return converter[superclass](a) except KeyError: continue if isinstance(a, CantSympify): raise SympifyError(a) try: return a._sympy_() except AttributeError: pass if not isinstance(a, basestring): for coerce in (float, int): try: return sympify(coerce(a)) except (TypeError, ValueError, AttributeError, SympifyError): continue if strict: raise SympifyError(a) if iterable(a): try: return type(a)([sympify(x, locals=locals, convert_xor=convert_xor, rational=rational) for x in a]) except TypeError: # Not all iterables are rebuildable with their type. pass if isinstance(a, dict): try: return type(a)([sympify(x, locals=locals, convert_xor=convert_xor, rational=rational) for x in a.iteritems()]) except TypeError: # Not all iterables are rebuildable with their type. pass # At this point we were given an arbitrary expression # which does not inherit from Basic and doesn't implement # _sympy_ (which is a canonical and robust way to convert # anything to SymPy expression). # # As a last chance, we try to take "a"'s normal form via unicode() # and try to parse it.
