  • AutoCodeRover resolves 22% of real-world GitHub in SWE-bench lite
    8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 9 Apr 2024
    Thank you for your interest. There are some interesting examples in the SWE-bench-lite benchmark which are resolved by AutoCodeRover:

    - From sympy: https://github.com/sympy/sympy/issues/13643. AutoCodeRover's patch for it: https://github.com/nus-apr/auto-code-rover/blob/main/results...

    - Another one from scikit-learn: https://github.com/scikit-learn/scikit-learn/issues/13070. AutoCodeRover's patch (https://github.com/nus-apr/auto-code-rover/blob/main/results...) modified a few lines below (compared to the developer patch) and wrote a different comment.

    There are more examples in the results directory (https://github.com/nus-apr/auto-code-rover/tree/main/results).

  • SymPy: Symbolic Mathematics in Python

    That's interesting. You should consider yourself lucky to have met Wolfram employees, as they are obviously vastly outnumbered by users of Mathematica.

    I have not met any developers for either of these products but I know that SymPy has a huge list of contributors for a project of its size. See: https://github.com/sympy/sympy/blob/master/AUTHORS

    You may not be hearing about SymPy users because SymPy is not a monolithic product. It is a library. If you know mathematicians big into using Python, they are probably aware of SymPy as it is the main attraction when it comes to symbolic computation in Python.

    https://github.com/sympy/sympy/issues/9479 suggests that multivariate inequalities are still unsolved in SymPy, though it looks like https://github.com/sympy/sympy/pull/21687 was merged in August. This probably isn't yet implemented in C++ in SymForce yet?

    > Array programming, a style of computer programming where operations are applied to whole arrays instead of individual elements

    > Automatic vectorization, a compiler optimization that transforms loops to vector operations

    > Image tracing, the creation of vector from raster graphics

    > Word embedding, mapping words to vectors, in natural language processing

    > Vector (mathematics and physics):

    > Row and column vectors, single row or column matrices

    > Vector space

    > Vector field, a vector for each point

    And then there are a number of CS usages of the word vector for 1D arrays.

  • Has anyone solved the prime number problem on SPOJ yet using pure python?
    2 projects | /r/Python | 29 May 2023
    Look at sympy.isprime for a carefully-optimized pure-Python solution (though if gmpy2 is installed, which it usually is, it will use that instead after trying the easiest cases)
