Subject [jira] [Commented] (NUMBERS-136) "log10" inconsistent with "log"
Date Thu, 03 Oct 2019 15:23:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NUMBERS-136?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16943667#comment-16943667
] 

Gilles Sadowski commented on NUMBERS-136:
-----------------------------------------

Also, I think that when the definitional formula is short-circuited, the reason (be it for
performance or to match a reference implementation)  should be mentioned (either in the Javadoc,
or as code comment).

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: complex

> For special cases (containing NaN or infinities), method {{log10}} does not return the
same values as {{log()}} (cf. case commented out  below).
> {code}
>     @Test
>     public void testLog10Consistency() {
>         // Infinities should map to the same values as computed with "log()".
>         // Assertions.assertEquals(infInf.log(), infInf.log10());
>         Assertions.assertEquals(infNegInf.log(), infNegInf.log10());
>         Assertions.assertEquals(negInfInf.log(), negInfInf.log10());
>         // Assertions.assertEquals(infNaN.log(), infNaN.log10());
>         Assertions.assertEquals(negInfNaN.log(), negInfNaN.log10());
>         // Assertions.assertEquals(nanInf.log(), nanInf.log10());
>         Assertions.assertEquals(nanNegInf.log(), nanNegInf.log10());
>     }
> {code}
> To avoid duplication, I suggest that {{log10}} calls {{log}} as part of its implementation.
