Add support for abs(x), AQ(x) and CubeRoot(x) for symbolic regression problems

Description (last modified by gkronber)
It would be nice to add support for the functions abs(x), AQ(x) (analytical quotient) and CubeRoot(x).
We already support a general root function. However, this is implemented as power(x, 1/round(x)) which makes it hard to use it in combination with constants optimization.
We also provide a separate symbol for the squared root. For some problems a cube root might also be necessary.

r15944: added support for Abs() symbol to tree interpreter and linear interpreter as well as to the infix parser

TODO
- const opt

comment:6 Changed 6 years ago by gkronber
We should also implement the CubeRoot symbol (see # 2954) and the AnalyticalQuotient symbol (see #2937) within the branch for this ticket.
I'll change this ticket description accordingly and close the other tickets.

TODO for simplifier:
square(* (...)) -> (* (square ...)) and same for cubesquare(abs(x)) -> square(x)(* (aq ...) const) -> push down constant into aq, constants also include factors(* (abs ...) const) -> push down constant into abs (if positive, otherwise keep sign)- ...?

r16348: fixed another bug in the BatchInterpreter for root symbols (now the linear and tree interpreter produce exactly the same results)
comment:24 Changed 6 years ago by gkronber
r16349: added abs, cube, cuberoot, and aq to native interpreter and added sqrt which was missing in the vectorized code. Added a default branch to allow easier identification of bugs because of missing operations.

r16350: merged r16333:16343 from trunk to branch (resolving a conflict in interpreter.h - the branch for sqrt)
comment:26 Changed 6 years ago by gkronber
The native interpreter produces different results than the managed interpreters when the following symbols are used
- Absolute
- sqrt
I got the exact same results for the following
- +, -, *, /
- log
- exp
- analytic quotient
- cube
- square
- power
- root
- cuberoot

r16351: fixed compile error after merge and made another change to native interpreter trying to resolve the differences when using abs and sqrt(). No success

r16366: disabled cube and cuberoot in the OSGP sample test which failed. On my machine the algorithm produces different results and the unit test still fails. Let's check the results of the builder.
comment:39 Changed 6 years ago by gkronber
Ok, the unit test succeeded on the builder. I assume it's fine then.

Reviewed all changes in this ticket. Thanks for implementing the functionality and adapting all related classes (parser, formatter, evaluators, simplifier, ...).
This ticket however depends on #2958 (batch interpretation) that has been implemented directly in the trunk. Therefore, releasing this ticket will not be easy, because both tickets contain changes to the same classes.

Not all formatters support the new symbols yet. E.g. the Excel formatter.

comment:45 Changed 6 years ago by gkronber
Cuberoot of negative arguments is not correctly implemented. Cuberoot(-3) is actually -Cuberoot(3). This is consistent with C++ and Math.Cbrt in .NET core.
comment:46 Changed 6 years ago by gkronber
r16905: Corrected calculation of cuberoot function in all interpreters and updated all formatters.
I tested GP/SymReg with all interpreters and got the same results with all of them.
comment:47 follow-up: ↓ 49 Changed 5 years ago by pfleck
reviewed and tested r16802 & r16905.
Formatters work well, thanks. Only a single remark: I think writing the "save" qbrt version that checks for negative x is overly defensive in some cases. For instance, Excel can handle negative bases in the POWER function, so there is no need for the save version.
I also tested the interpreters using the new symbols. All yielded the same results, except the SymbolicDataAnalysisExpressionTreeILEmittingInterpreter (see the attached script). I checked the generated IL for the short method return x < 0.0 ? -Math.Pow(-x, 1.0/3.0) : Math.Pow(x, 1.0/3.0); and compared it to the interpreter's code but I didn't spot any obvious error. Maybe there is an issue in one of the other symbols' generated IL-code.

Replying to pfleck:
... think writing the "save" qbrt version that checks for negative x is overly defensive in some cases. For instance, Excel can handle negative bases in the POWER function, so there is no need for the save version.
You are right. I didn't check for that. I propose to keep the defensive code for the next release.
All yielded the same results, except the SymbolicDataAnalysisExpressionTreeILEmittingInterpreter (see the attached script).
Thanks for the test script. This was indeed a bug. I fixed this in r17028.
