SYMPOW is a package to compute special values of symmetric power elliptic curve L-functions. It can compute up to about 64 digits of precision. This interface provides complete access to sympow, which is a standard part of Sage (and includes the extra data files).
Note
Each call to sympow runs a complete sympow process. This incurs about 0.2 seconds overhead.

Type sympow.[tab] for a list of useful commands that are implemented using the command line interface, but return objects that make sense in Sage.
You can also use the complete command-line interface of sympow via this class. Type sympow.help() for a list of commands and how to call them.
Return \(L(\mathrm{Sym}^{(n)}(E, \text{edge}))\) to prec digits of precision, where edge is the right edge. Here \(n\) must be even.
INPUT:
OUTPUT:
Note
Before using this function for the first time for a given \(n\), you may have to type sympow('-new_data n'), where n is replaced by your value of \(n\).
If you would like to see the extensive output sympow prints when running this function, just type set_verbose(2).
EXAMPLES:
These examples only work if you run sympow -new_data 2 in a Sage shell first. Alternatively, within Sage, execute:
sage: sympow('-new_data 2') # not tested
This command precomputes some data needed for the following examples.
sage: a = sympow.L(EllipticCurve('11a'), 2, 16) # not tested
sage: a # not tested
'1.057599244590958E+00'
sage: RR(a) # not tested
1.05759924459096
Return \(0^{th}\) to \(d^{th}\) derivatives of \(L(\mathrm{Sym}^{(n)}(E,s)\) to prec digits of precision, where \(s\) is the right edge if \(n\) is even and the center if \(n\) is odd.
INPUT:
OUTPUT: a string, exactly as output by sympow
Note
To use this function you may have to run a few commands like sympow('-new_data 1d2'), each which takes a few minutes. If this function fails it will indicate what commands have to be run.
EXAMPLES:
sage: print sympow.Lderivs(EllipticCurve('11a'), 1, 16, 2) # not tested

Return the analytic rank and leading \(L\)-value of the elliptic curve \(E\).
INPUT:
OUTPUT:
Note
The analytic rank is not computed provably correctly in general.
Note
In computing the analytic rank we consider \(L^{(r)}(E,1)\) to be \(0\) if \(L^{(r)}(E,1)/\Omega_E > 0.0001\).
EXAMPLES: We compute the analytic ranks of the lowest known conductor curves of the first few ranks:
sage: sympow.analytic_rank(EllipticCurve('11a'))
(0, '2.53842e-01')
sage: sympow.analytic_rank(EllipticCurve('37a'))
(1, '3.06000e-01')
sage: sympow.analytic_rank(EllipticCurve('389a'))
(2, '7.59317e-01')
sage: sympow.analytic_rank(EllipticCurve('5077a'))
(3, '1.73185e+00')
sage: sympow.analytic_rank(EllipticCurve([1, -1, 0, -79, 289]))
(4, '8.94385e+00')
sage: sympow.analytic_rank(EllipticCurve([0, 0, 1, -79, 342])) # long time
(5, '3.02857e+01')
sage: sympow.analytic_rank(EllipticCurve([1, 1, 0, -2582, 48720])) # long time
(6, '3.20781e+02')
sage: sympow.analytic_rank(EllipticCurve([0, 0, 0, -10012, 346900])) # long time
(7, '1.32517e+03')
x.__init__(...) initializes x; see help(type(x)) for signature
Return the modular degree of the elliptic curve E, assuming the Stevens conjecture.
