[Maxima] probleme with rule
Sun Oct 8 10:13:54 CDT 2006
Hello with all,
I try to solve a system of equations including binary variables
and non binary variables. To this end I wish to say to Maxima that:
For all binary variable b and for any integer n > 0
b^n = b
I test this following but that causes the Bind stack overflow error.
put(a, Binary, true);
matchdeclare(b, atom, n, integerp);
BinaryPowerRule(b, n):=if ((n > 0) and get(b, Binary)) then b else b^n;
tellsimp(b^n, BinaryPowerRule(b, n));
a^2 => Bind stack overflow
Is it possible to circumvent the problem?
PS: i noticed that the documentation for the function "get" is under
"list" subject while the one for function "put" is under "Miscellaneous Options" subject.
