Matrices over Cyclotomic Fields¶

The underlying matrix for a Matrix_cyclo_dense object is stored as follows: given an n x m matrix over a cyclotomic field of degree d, we store a d x (nm) matrix over QQ, each column of which corresponds to an element of the original matrix. This can be retrieved via the _rational_matrix method. Here is an example illustrating this:

EXAMPLES:

sage: F.<zeta> = CyclotomicField(5)
sage: M = Matrix(F, 2, 3, [zeta, 3, zeta**4+5, (zeta+1)**4, 0, 1])
sage: M
[                        zeta                            3  -zeta^3 - zeta^2 - zeta + 4]
[3*zeta^3 + 5*zeta^2 + 3*zeta                            0                            1]

sage: M._rational_matrix()
[ 0  3  4  0  0  1]
[ 1  0 -1  3  0  0]
[ 0  0 -1  5  0  0]
[ 0  0 -1  3  0  0]

class sage.matrix.matrix_cyclo_dense.Matrix_cyclo_dense

Initialize a newly created cyclotomic matrix.

INPUT:

• parent – a matrix space over a cyclotomic number field
• entries – see matrix()
• copy – ignored (for backwards compatibility)
• coerce – if False, assume without checking that the entries lie in the base ring

EXAMPLES:

This function is called implicitly when you create new cyclotomic dense matrices:

sage: W.<a> = CyclotomicField(100)
sage: A = matrix(2, 3, [1, 1/a, 1-a,a, -2/3*a, a^19])
sage: A
[                        1 -a^39 + a^29 - a^19 + a^9                    -a + 1]
[                        a                    -2/3*a                      a^19]
sage: TestSuite(A).run()

charpoly(var='x', algorithm='multimodular', proof=None)

Return the characteristic polynomial of self, as a polynomial over the base ring.

INPUT:

• algorithm

• ‘multimodular’ (default): reduce modulo primes, compute charpoly mod p, and lift (very fast)
• ‘pari’: use pari (quite slow; comparable to Magma v2.14 though)
• ‘hessenberg’: put matrix in Hessenberg form (double dog slow)
• proof – bool (default: None) proof flag determined by global linalg proof.

OUTPUT:

polynomial

EXAMPLES:

sage: K.<z> = CyclotomicField(5)
sage: a = matrix(K, 3, [1,z,1+z^2, z/3,1,2,3,z^2,1-z])
sage: f = a.charpoly(); f
x^3 + (z - 3)*x^2 + (-16/3*z^2 - 2*z)*x - 2/3*z^3 + 16/3*z^2 - 5*z + 5/3
sage: f(a)
[0 0 0]
[0 0 0]
[0 0 0]
sage: a.charpoly(algorithm='pari')
x^3 + (z - 3)*x^2 + (-16/3*z^2 - 2*z)*x - 2/3*z^3 + 16/3*z^2 - 5*z + 5/3
sage: a.charpoly(algorithm='hessenberg')
x^3 + (z - 3)*x^2 + (-16/3*z^2 - 2*z)*x - 2/3*z^3 + 16/3*z^2 - 5*z + 5/3

sage: Matrix(K, 1, ).charpoly()
x
sage: Matrix(K, 1, ).charpoly(var='y')
y - 5

sage: Matrix(CyclotomicField(13),3).charpoly()
x^3
sage: Matrix(CyclotomicField(13),3).charpoly().parent()
Cyclotomic Field of order 13 and degree 12

coefficient_bound()

Return an upper bound for the (complex) absolute values of all entries of self with respect to all embeddings.

Use self.height() for a sharper bound.

This is computed using just the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality, i.e., we use the fact that

\left| \sum_i a_i\zeta^i \right| \leq \sum_i |a_i|,


as $$|\zeta| = 1$$.

EXAMPLES:

sage: W.<z> = CyclotomicField(5)
sage: A = matrix(W, 2, 2, [1+z, 0, 9*z+7, -3 + 4*z]); A
[  z + 1       0]
[9*z + 7 4*z - 3]
sage: A.coefficient_bound()
16


The above bound is just $$9 + 7$$, coming from the lower left entry. A better bound would be the following:

sage: (A[1,0]).abs()
12.997543663...

denominator()

Return the denominator of the entries of this matrix.

OUTPUT:
integer – the smallest integer d so that d * self has
entries in the ring of integers

EXAMPLES:

sage: W.<z> = CyclotomicField(5)
sage: A = matrix(W, 2, 2, [-2/7,2/3*z+z^2,-z,1+z/19]); A
[       -2/7 z^2 + 2/3*z]
[         -z  1/19*z + 1]
sage: d = A.denominator(); d
399

echelon_form(algorithm='multimodular', height_guess=None)

Find the echelon form of self, using the specified algorithm.

The result is cached for each algorithm separately.

EXAMPLES:

sage: W.<z> = CyclotomicField(3)
sage: A = matrix(W, 2, 3, [1+z, 2/3, 9*z+7, -3 + 4*z, z, -7*z]); A
[  z + 1     2/3 9*z + 7]
[4*z - 3       z    -7*z]
sage: A.echelon_form()
[                  1                   0  -192/97*z - 361/97]
[                  0                   1 1851/97*z + 1272/97]
sage: A.echelon_form(algorithm='classical')
[                  1                   0  -192/97*z - 361/97]
[                  0                   1 1851/97*z + 1272/97]


We verify that the result is cached and that the caches are separate:

sage: A.echelon_form() is A.echelon_form()
True
sage: A.echelon_form() is A.echelon_form(algorithm='classical')
False

height()

Return the height of self.

If we let $$a_{ij}$$ be the $$i,j$$ entry of self, then we define the height of self to be

$$\max_v \max_{i,j} |a_{ij}|_v$$,

where $$v$$ runs over all complex embeddings of self.base_ring().

EXAMPLES:

sage: W.<z> = CyclotomicField(5)
sage: A = matrix(W, 2, 2, [1+z, 0, 9*z+7, -3 + 4*z]); A
[  z + 1       0]
[9*z + 7 4*z - 3]
sage: A.height()
12.997543663...
sage: (A[1,0]).abs()
12.997543663...

randomize(density=1, num_bound=2, den_bound=2, distribution=None, nonzero=False, *args, **kwds)

Randomize the entries of self.

Choose rational numbers according to distribution, whose numerators are bounded by num_bound and whose denominators are bounded by den_bound.

EXAMPLES:

sage: A = Matrix(CyclotomicField(5),2,2,range(4)) ; A
[0 1]
[2 3]
sage: A.randomize()
sage: A   # random output
[       1/2*zeta5^2 + zeta5                        1/2]
[        -zeta5^2 + 2*zeta5 -2*zeta5^3 + 2*zeta5^2 + 2]

set_immutable()

Change this matrix so that it is immutable.

EXAMPLES:

sage: W.<z> = CyclotomicField(5)
sage: A = matrix(W, 2, 2, [1,2/3*z+z^2,-z,1+z/2])
sage: A[0,0] = 10
sage: A.set_immutable()
sage: A[0,0] = 20
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
ValueError: matrix is immutable; please change a copy instead (i.e., use copy(M) to change a copy of M).


Note that there is no function to set a matrix to be mutable again, since such a function would violate the whole point. Instead make a copy, which is always mutable by default.:

sage: A.set_mutable()
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
AttributeError: 'sage.matrix.matrix_cyclo_dense.Matrix_cyclo_dense' object has no attribute 'set_mutable'
sage: B = A.__copy__()
sage: B[0,0] = 20
sage: B[0,0]
20

tensor_product(A, subdivide=True)

Return the tensor product of two matrices.

INPUT:

• A – a matrix
• subdivide – (default: True) whether or not to return natural subdivisions with the matrix

OUTPUT:

Replace each element of self by a copy of A, but first create a scalar multiple of A by the element it replaces. So if self is an $$m\times n$$ matrix and A is a $$p\times q$$ matrix, then the tensor product is an $$mp\times nq$$ matrix. By default, the matrix will be subdivided into submatrices of size $$p\times q$$.

EXAMPLES:

sage: C = CyclotomicField(12)
sage: M = matrix.random(C, 3, 3)
sage: N = matrix.random(C, 50, 50)
sage: M.tensor_product(M) == super(type(M), M).tensor_product(M)
True
sage: N = matrix.random(C, 15, 20)
sage: M.tensor_product(N) == super(type(M), M).tensor_product(N)
True
