class sage.categories.modules_with_basis.ModulesWithBasis(base_category)#

The category of modules with a distinguished basis.

The elements are represented by expanding them in the distinguished basis. The morphisms are not required to respect the distinguished basis.

EXAMPLES:

sage: ModulesWithBasis(ZZ)
Category of modules with basis over Integer Ring
sage: ModulesWithBasis(ZZ).super_categories()
[Category of modules over Integer Ring]


If the base ring is actually a field, this constructs instead the category of vector spaces with basis:

sage: ModulesWithBasis(QQ)
Category of vector spaces with basis over Rational Field

sage: ModulesWithBasis(QQ).super_categories()
[Category of modules with basis over Rational Field,
Category of vector spaces over Rational Field]


Let $$X$$ and $$Y$$ be two modules with basis. We can build $$Hom(X,Y)$$:

sage: X = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, [1,2]); X.__custom_name = "X"
sage: Y = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, [3,4]); Y.__custom_name = "Y"
sage: H = Hom(X, Y); H
Set of Morphisms from X to Y in Category of finite dimensional vector spaces with basis over Rational Field


The simplest morphism is the zero map:

sage: H.zero()         # todo: move this test into module once we have an example
Generic morphism:
From: X
To:   Y


which we can apply to elements of $$X$$:

sage: x = X.monomial(1) + 3 * X.monomial(2)
sage: H.zero()(x)
0


EXAMPLES:

We now construct a more interesting morphism by extending a function by linearity:

sage: phi = H(on_basis = lambda i: Y.monomial(i+2)); phi
Generic morphism:
From: X
To:   Y
sage: phi(x)
B + 3*B


We can retrieve the function acting on indices of the basis:

sage: f = phi.on_basis()
sage: f(1), f(2)
(B, B)


$$Hom(X,Y)$$ has a natural module structure (except for the zero, the operations are not yet implemented though). However since the dimension is not necessarily finite, it is not a module with basis; but see FiniteDimensionalModulesWithBasis and GradedModulesWithBasis:

sage: H in ModulesWithBasis(QQ), H in Modules(QQ)
(False, True)


Some more playing around with categories and higher order homsets:

sage: H.category()
Category of homsets of modules with basis over Rational Field
sage: Hom(H, H).category()
Category of endsets of homsets of modules with basis over Rational Field


Todo

End(X) is an algebra.

Note

This category currently requires an implementation of an element method support. Once github issue #18066 is merged, an implementation of an items method will be required.

class CartesianProducts(category, *args)#

The category of modules with basis constructed by Cartesian products of modules with basis.

class ElementMethods#

coefficient(m)#

Return the coefficient of m in self and raise an error if m is not in the basis indexing set.

INPUT:

• m – a basis index of the parent of self

OUTPUT:

The B[m]-coordinate of self with respect to the basis B. Here, B denotes the given basis of the parent of self.

EXAMPLES:

sage: z = s() - 2*s([2,1]) + s([1,1,1]) + s()
sage: z.coefficient()
1
sage: z.coefficient([2,1])

sage: z.coefficient(Partition([2,1]))
-2
sage: z.coefficient([1,2])

...
AssertionError: [1, 2] should be an element of Partitions
sage: z.coefficient(Composition([2,1]))
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
AssertionError: [2, 1] should be an element of Partitions


Test that coefficient also works for those parents that do not have an element_class:

Return a dictionary whose keys are indices of basis elements in the support of self and whose values are the corresponding coefficients.

module_morphism(on_basis=None, matrix=None, function=None, diagonal=None, triangular=None, unitriangular=False, **keywords)#

Construct a module morphism from self to codomain.

Let self be a module $$X$$ with a basis indexed by $$I$$. This constructs a morphism $$f: X \to Y$$ by linearity from a map $$I \to Y$$ which is to be its restriction to the basis $$(x_i)_{i \in I}$$ of $$X$$. Some variants are possible too.

INPUT:

• self – a parent $$X$$ in ModulesWithBasis(R) with basis $$x=(x_i)_{i\in I}$$.

Exactly one of the four following options must be specified in order to define the morphism:

• on_basis – a function $$f$$ from $$I$$ to $$Y$$

• diagonal – a function $$d$$ from $$I$$ to $$R$$

• function – a function $$f$$ from $$X$$ to $$Y$$

• matrix – a matrix of size $$\dim Y \times \dim X$$ (if the keyword side is set to 'left') or $$\dim Y \times \dim X$$ (if this keyword is 'right')

Further options include:

• codomain – the codomain $$Y$$ of the morphism (default: f.codomain() if it’s defined; otherwise it must be specified)

• category – a category or None (default: None)

• zero – the zero of the codomain (default: codomain.zero()); can be used (with care) to define affine maps. Only meaningful with on_basis.

• position – a non-negative integer specifying which positional argument is used as the input of the function $$f$$ (default: 0); this is currently only used with on_basis.

• triangular – (default: None) "upper" or "lower" or None:

• unitriangular – (default: False) a boolean. Only meaningful for a triangular morphism. As a shorthand, one may use unitriangular="lower" for triangular="lower", unitriangular=True.

• side – “left” or “right” (default: “left”) Only meaningful for a morphism built from a matrix.

EXAMPLES:

With the on_basis option, this returns a function $$g$$ obtained by extending $$f$$ by linearity on the position-th positional argument. For example, for position == 1 and a ternary function $$f$$, one has:

$g\left( a,\ \sum_i \lambda_i x_i,\ c \right) = \sum_i \lambda_i f(a, i, c).$

11*B + 2*B + B + 2*B


In this special case, the default category is Sets():

sage: phi.category_for()
Category of sets


One can construct morphisms with the base ring as codomain:

sage: X = CombinatorialFreeModule(ZZ,[1,-1])
sage: phi = X.module_morphism( on_basis=lambda i: i, codomain=ZZ )
sage: phi( 2 * X.monomial(1) + 3 * X.monomial(-1) )
-1
sage: phi.category_for()
sage: phi.category_for() # todo: not implemented (ZZ is currently not in Modules(ZZ))
Category of modules over Integer Ring


Or more generally any ring admitting a coercion map from the base ring:

sage: phi = X.module_morphism(on_basis=lambda i: i, codomain=RR )
sage: phi( 2 * X.monomial(1) + 3 * X.monomial(-1) )
-1.00000000000000
sage: phi.category_for()
sage: phi.category_for() # todo: not implemented (RR is currently not in Modules(ZZ))
Category of modules over Integer Ring

sage: phi = X.module_morphism(on_basis=lambda i: i, codomain=Zmod(4) )
sage: phi( 2 * X.monomial(1) + 3 * X.monomial(-1) )
3

sage: phi = Y.module_morphism(on_basis=lambda i: i, codomain=Zmod(4) )
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
ValueError: codomain(=Ring of integers modulo 4) should be a module over the base ring of the domain(=Y)


On can also define module morphisms between free modules over different base rings; here we implement the natural map from $$X = \RR^2$$ to $$Y = \CC$$:

sage: X = CombinatorialFreeModule(RR,['x','y'])
sage: Y = CombinatorialFreeModule(CC,['z'])
sage: x = X.monomial('x')
sage: y = X.monomial('y')
sage: z = Y.monomial('z')
sage: def on_basis( a ):
....:     if a == 'x':
....:         return CC(1) * z
....:     elif a == 'y':
....:         return CC(I) * z
sage: phi = X.module_morphism( on_basis=on_basis, codomain=Y )
sage: v = 3 * x + 2 * y; v
3.00000000000000*B['x'] + 2.00000000000000*B['y']
sage: phi(v)
(3.00000000000000+2.00000000000000*I)*B['z']
sage: phi.category_for()
sage: phi.category_for() # todo: not implemented (CC is currently not in Modules(RR)!)
Category of vector spaces over Real Field with 53 bits of precision

sage: Y = CombinatorialFreeModule(CC['q'],['z'])
sage: z = Y.monomial('z')
sage: phi = X.module_morphism( on_basis=on_basis, codomain=Y )
sage: phi(v)
(3.00000000000000+2.00000000000000*I)*B['z']


Of course, there should be a coercion between the respective base rings of the domain and the codomain for this to be meaningful:

sage: Y = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ,['z'])
sage: phi = X.module_morphism( on_basis=on_basis, codomain=Y )
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
ValueError: codomain(=Free module generated by {'z'} over Rational Field)
should be a module over the base ring of the
domain(=Free module generated by {'x', 'y'} over Real Field with 53 bits of precision)

sage: Y = CombinatorialFreeModule(RR['q'],['z'])
sage: phi = Y.module_morphism( on_basis=on_basis, codomain=X )
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
ValueError: codomain(=Free module generated by {'x', 'y'} over Real Field with 53 bits of precision)
should be a module over the base ring of the
domain(=Free module generated by {'z'} over Univariate Polynomial Ring in q over Real Field with 53 bits of precision)


With the diagonal=d argument, this constructs the module morphism $$g$$ such that

$g(x_i) = d(i) y_i.$

This assumes that the respective bases $$x$$ and $$y$$ of $$X$$ and $$Y$$ have the same index set $$I$$:

sage: X = CombinatorialFreeModule(ZZ, [1,2,3]); X.rename("X")
sage: from sage.arith.misc import factorial
sage: phi = X.module_morphism(diagonal=factorial, codomain=X)
sage: x = X.basis()
sage: phi(x), phi(x), phi(x)
(B, 2*B, 6*B)


With the matrix=m argument, this constructs the module morphism whose matrix in the distinguished basis of $$X$$ and $$Y$$ is $$m$$:

sage: X = CombinatorialFreeModule(ZZ, [1,2,3]); X.rename("X"); x = X.basis()
sage: Y = CombinatorialFreeModule(ZZ, [3,4]); Y.rename("Y"); y = Y.basis()
sage: m = matrix([[0,1,2],[3,5,0]])
sage: phi = X.module_morphism(matrix=m, codomain=Y)
sage: phi(x)
3*B
sage: phi(x)
B + 5*B


With triangular="upper", the constructed module morphism is assumed to be upper triangular; that is its matrix in the distinguished basis of $$X$$ and $$Y$$ would be upper triangular with invertible elements on its diagonal. This is used to compute preimages and to invert the morphism:

sage: I = list(range(1, 200))
sage: X = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, I); X.rename("X"); x = X.basis()
sage: Y = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, I); Y.rename("Y"); y = Y.basis()
sage: f = Y.sum_of_monomials * divisors
sage: phi = X.module_morphism(f, triangular="upper", codomain = Y)
sage: phi(x)
B + B
sage: phi(x)
B + B + B + B
sage: phi(x)
B + B + B + B + B + B + B + B
sage: phi.preimage(y)
-B + B
sage: phi.preimage(y)
B - B - B + B
sage: phi.preimage(y)
-B + B + B + B - B - B - B + B
sage: (phi^-1)(y)
-B + B + B + B - B - B - B + B


Since github issue #8678, one can also define a triangular morphism from a function:

sage: X = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, [0,1,2,3,4]); x = X.basis()
sage: from sage.modules.with_basis.morphism import TriangularModuleMorphismFromFunction
sage: def f(x): return x + X.term(0, sum(x.coefficients()))
sage: phi = X.module_morphism(function=f, codomain=X, triangular="upper")
sage: phi(x + 3*x)
4*B + B + 3*B
sage: phi.preimage(_)
B + 3*B


For details and further optional arguments, see sage.modules.with_basis.morphism.TriangularModuleMorphism.

Warning

As a temporary measure, until multivariate morphisms are implemented, the constructed morphism is in Hom(codomain, domain, category). This is only correct for unary functions.

Todo

• Should codomain be self by default in the diagonal, triangular, and matrix cases?

• Support for diagonal morphisms between modules not sharing the same index set

monomial(i)#

Return the basis element indexed by i.

INPUT:

• i – an element of the index set

EXAMPLES:

sage: F = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, ['a', 'b', 'c'])
sage: F.monomial('a')
B['a']


F.monomial is in fact (almost) a map:

sage: F.monomial
Term map from {'a', 'b', 'c'} to Free module generated by {'a', 'b', 'c'} over Rational Field

monomial_or_zero_if_none(i)#

EXAMPLES:

sage: F = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, ['a', 'b', 'c'])
sage: F.monomial_or_zero_if_none('a')
B['a']
sage: F.monomial_or_zero_if_none(None)
0


Construct the quotient module self / submodule.

INPUT:

• submodule – a submodule with basis of self, or something that can be turned into one via self.submodule(submodule)

• check, already_echelonized – passed down to ModulesWithBasis.ParentMethods.submodule()

Warning

At this point, this only supports quotients by free submodules admitting a basis in unitriangular echelon form. In this case, the quotient is also a free module, with a basis consisting of the retract of a subset of the basis of self.

EXAMPLES:

sage: X = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, range(3), prefix="x")
sage: x = X.basis()
sage: Y = X.quotient_module([x-x, x-x], already_echelonized=True)
sage: Y.print_options(prefix='y'); Y
Free module generated by {2} over Rational Field
sage: y = Y.basis()
sage: y
y
sage: y.lift()
x
sage: Y.retract(x+2*x)
3*y

sage: R.<a,b> = QQ[]
sage: C = CombinatorialFreeModule(R, range(3), prefix='x')
sage: x = C.basis()
sage: gens = [x - x, 2*x - 2*x, x - x]
sage: Y = C.quotient_module(gens)

random_element(n=2)#

Return a ‘random’ element of self.

INPUT:

• n – integer (default: 2); number of summands

ALGORITHM:

Return a sum of n terms, each of which is formed by multiplying a random element of the base ring by a random element of the group.

EXAMPLES:

sage: x = DihedralGroup(6).algebra(QQ).random_element()
sage: x.parent() is DihedralGroup(6).algebra(QQ)
True


Note, this result can depend on the PRNG state in libgap in a way that depends on which packages are loaded, so we must re-seed GAP to ensure a consistent result for this example:

sage: libgap.set_seed(0)
0
sage: m = SU(2, 13).algebra(QQ).random_element(1)
sage: m.parent() is SU(2, 13).algebra(QQ)
True
sage: p = CombinatorialFreeModule(ZZ, Partitions(4)).random_element()
sage: p.parent() is CombinatorialFreeModule(ZZ, Partitions(4))
True

submodule(gens, check=True, already_echelonized=False, unitriangular=False, support_order=None, category=None, *args, **opts)#

The submodule spanned by a finite set of elements.

INPUT:

• gens – a list or family of elements of self

• check – (default: True) whether to verify that the

elements of gens are in self

• already_echelonized – (default: False) whether

the elements of gens are already in (not necessarily reduced) echelon form

• unitriangular – (default: False) whether the lift morphism is unitriangular

• support_order – (optional) either something that can be converted into a tuple or a key function

• category – (optional) the category of the submodule

If already_echelonized is False, then the generators are put in reduced echelon form using echelonize(), and reindexed by $$0,1,...$$.

Warning

At this point, this method only works for finite dimensional submodules and if matrices can be echelonized over the base ring.

If in addition unitriangular is True, then the generators are made such that the coefficients of the pivots are 1, so that lifting map is unitriangular.

The basis of the submodule uses the same index set as the generators, and the lifting map sends $$y_i$$ to $$gens[i]$$.

EXAMPLES:

We construct a submodule of the free $$\QQ$$-module generated by $$x_0, x_1, x_2$$. The submodule is spanned by $$y_0 = x_0 - x_1$$ and $$y_1 - x_1 - x_2$$, and its basis elements are indexed by $$0$$ and $$1$$:

sage: X = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, range(3), prefix="x")
sage: x = X.basis()
sage: gens = [x - x, x - x]; gens
[x - x, x - x]
sage: Y.print_options(prefix='y'); Y
Free module generated by {0, 1} over Rational Field
sage: y = Y.basis()
sage: y
y
sage: y.lift()
x - x
sage: Y.retract(x-x)
y + y
sage: Y.retract(x)
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
ValueError: x is not in the image


By using a family to specify a basis of the submodule, we obtain a submodule whose index set coincides with the index set of the family:

sage: X = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, range(3), prefix="x")
sage: x = X.basis()
sage: gens = Family({1 : x - x, 3: x - x}); gens
Finite family {1: x - x, 3: x - x}
sage: Y.print_options(prefix='y'); Y
Free module generated by {1, 3} over Rational Field
sage: y = Y.basis()
sage: y
y
sage: y.lift()
x - x
sage: y.lift()
x - x
sage: Y.retract(x-x)
y + y
sage: Y.retract(x)
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
ValueError: x is not in the image


It is not necessary that the generators of the submodule form a basis (an explicit basis will be computed):

sage: X = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, range(3), prefix="x")
sage: x = X.basis()
sage: gens = [x - x, 2*x - 2*x, x - x]; gens
[x - x, 2*x - 2*x, x - x]
sage: Y.print_options(prefix='y')
sage: Y
Free module generated by {0, 1} over Rational Field
sage: [b.lift() for b in Y.basis()]
[x - x, x - x]


We now implement by hand the center of the algebra of the symmetric group $$S_3$$:

sage: S3 = SymmetricGroup(3)
sage: S3A = S3.algebra(QQ)
sage: basis = S3A.annihilator_basis(S3A.algebra_generators(), S3A.bracket)
sage: basis
((), (1,2,3) + (1,3,2), (2,3) + (1,2) + (1,3))
sage: center = S3A.submodule(basis,
....:                        category=AlgebrasWithBasis(QQ).Subobjects(),
sage: center
Free module generated by {0, 1, 2} over Rational Field
sage: center in Algebras
True
sage: center.print_options(prefix='c')
sage: c = center.basis()
sage: c.lift()
(1,2,3) + (1,3,2)
sage: c^2
c
sage: e = 1/6*(c+c+c)
sage: e.is_idempotent()
True


Of course, this center is best constructed using:

sage: center = S3A.center()


We can also automatically construct a basis such that the lift morphism is (lower) unitriangular:

sage: R.<a,b> = QQ[]
sage: C = CombinatorialFreeModule(R, range(3), prefix='x')
sage: x = C.basis()
sage: gens = [x - x, 2*x - 2*x, x - x]
sage: Y = C.submodule(gens, unitriangular=True)
sage: Y.lift.matrix()
[ 1  0]
[ 0  1]
[-1 -1]


We now construct a (finite-dimensional) submodule of an infinite dimensional free module:

sage: C = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, ZZ, prefix='z')
sage: z = C.basis()
sage: gens = [z - z, 2*z - 2*z, z - z]
sage: Y = C.submodule(gens)
sage: [Y.lift(b) for b in Y.basis()]
[z - z, z - z]

sum_of_monomials()#

Return the sum of the basis elements with indices in indices.

INPUT:

• indices – an list (or iterable) of indices of basis elements

EXAMPLES:

sage: F = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, ['a', 'b', 'c'])
sage: F.sum_of_monomials(['a', 'b'])
B['a'] + B['b']

sage: F.sum_of_monomials(['a', 'b', 'a'])
2*B['a'] + B['b']


F.sum_of_monomials is in fact (almost) a map:

sage: F.sum_of_monomials
A map to Free module generated by {'a', 'b', 'c'} over Rational Field

sum_of_terms(terms)#

Construct a sum of terms of self.

INPUT:

• terms – a list (or iterable) of pairs (index, coeff)

OUTPUT:

Sum of coeff * B[index] over all (index, coeff) in terms, where B is the basis of self.

EXAMPLES:

sage: m = matrix([[0,1],[1,1]])
sage: J.<a,b,c> = JordanAlgebra(m)
sage: J.sum_of_terms([(0, 2), (2, -3)])
2 + (0, -3)

tensor(*parents, **kwargs)#

Return the tensor product of the parents.

EXAMPLES:

sage: C = AlgebrasWithBasis(QQ)
sage: A = C.example(); A.rename("A")
sage: A.tensor(A,A)
A # A # A
sage: A.rename(None)

term(index, coeff=None)#

Construct a term in self.

INPUT:

• index – the index of a basis element

• coeff – an element of the coefficient ring (default: one)

OUTPUT:

coeff * B[index], where B is the basis of self.

EXAMPLES:

sage: m = matrix([[0,1],[1,1]])
sage: J.<a,b,c> = JordanAlgebra(m)
sage: J.term(1, -2)
0 + (-2, 0)


Design: should this do coercion on the coefficient ring?

Super#

alias of SuperModulesWithBasis

class TensorProducts(category, *args)#

The category of modules with basis constructed by tensor product of modules with basis.

class ElementMethods#

Bases: object

Implements operations on elements of tensor products of modules with basis.

apply_multilinear_morphism(f, codomain=None)#

Return the result of applying the morphism induced by f to self.

INPUT:

• f – a multilinear morphism from the component modules of the parent tensor product to any module

• codomain – the codomain of f (optional)

By the universal property of the tensor product, f induces a linear morphism from $$self.parent()$$ to the target module. Returns the result of applying that morphism to self.

The codomain is used for optimizations purposes only. If it’s not provided, it’s recovered by calling f on the zero input.

EXAMPLES:

We start with simple (admittedly not so interesting) examples, with two modules $$A$$ and $$B$$:

sage: A = CombinatorialFreeModule(ZZ, [1,2], prefix="A"); A.rename("A")
sage: B = CombinatorialFreeModule(ZZ, [3,4], prefix="B"); B.rename("B")


and $$f$$ the bilinear morphism $$(a,b) \mapsto b \otimes a$$ from $$A \times B$$ to $$B \otimes A$$:

sage: def f(a,b):
....:     return tensor([b,a])


Now, calling applying $$f$$ on $$a \otimes b$$ returns the same as $$f(a,b)$$:

sage: a = A.monomial(1) + 2 * A.monomial(2); a
A + 2*A
sage: b = B.monomial(3) - 2 * B.monomial(4); b
B - 2*B
sage: f(a,b)
B # A + 2*B # A - 2*B # A - 4*B # A
sage: tensor([a,b]).apply_multilinear_morphism(f)
B # A + 2*B # A - 2*B # A - 4*B # A


$$f$$ may be a bilinear morphism to any module over the base ring of $$A$$ and $$B$$. Here the codomain is $$\ZZ$$:

sage: def f(a,b):
....:     return sum(a.coefficients(), 0) * sum(b.coefficients(), 0)
sage: f(a,b)
-3
sage: tensor([a,b]).apply_multilinear_morphism(f)
-3


Mind the $$0$$ in the sums above; otherwise $$f$$ would not return $$0$$ in $$\ZZ$$:

sage: def f(a,b):
....:     return sum(a.coefficients()) * sum(b.coefficients())
sage: type(f(A.zero(), B.zero()))
<... 'int'>


Which would be wrong and break this method:

sage: tensor([a,b]).apply_multilinear_morphism(f)
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
AttributeError: 'int' object has no attribute 'parent'


Here we consider an example where the codomain is a module with basis with a different base ring:

   sage: C = CombinatorialFreeModule(QQ, [(1,3),(2,4)], prefix="C"); C.rename("C")
sage: def f(a,b):
....:     return C.sum_of_terms( [((1,3), QQ(a*b)), ((2,4), QQ(a*b))] )
sage: f(a,b)
C[(1, 3)] - 4*C[(2, 4)]
sage: tensor([a,b]).apply_multilinear_morphism(f)
C[(1, 3)] - 4*C[(2, 4)]

We conclude with a real life application, where we
check that the antipode of the Hopf algebra of
Symmetric functions on the Schur basis satisfies its
defining formula::

sage: Sym = SymmetricFunctions(QQ)
sage: s = Sym.schur()
sage: def f(a,b): return a*b.antipode()
sage: x = 4*s.an_element(); x
8*s[] + 8*s + 12*s
sage: x.coproduct().apply_multilinear_morphism(f)
8*s[]
sage: x.coproduct().apply_multilinear_morphism(f) == x.counit()
True


We recover the constant term of $$x$$, as desired.

Todo

Extract a method to linearize a multilinear morphism, and delegate the work there.
