Extension of rings¶
Sage offers the possibility to work with ring extensions \(L/K\) as actual parents and perform meaningful operations on them and their elements.
The simplest way to build an extension is to use the method
sage.categories.commutative_rings.CommutativeRings.ParentMethods.over()
on the top ring,
that is \(L\).
For example, the following line constructs the extension of
finite fields \(\mathbf{F}_{5^4}/\mathbf{F}_{5^2}\):
sage: GF(5^4).over(GF(5^2))
Field in z4 with defining polynomial x^2 + (4*z2 + 3)*x + z2 over its base
By default, Sage reuses the canonical generator of the top ring (here \(z_4 \in \mathbf{F}_{5^4}\)), together with its name. However, the user can customize them by passing in appropriate arguments:
sage: F = GF(5^2)
sage: k = GF(5^4)
sage: z4 = k.gen()
sage: K.<a> = k.over(F, gen = 1-z4)
sage: K
Field in a with defining polynomial x^2 + z2*x + 4 over its base
The base of the extension is available via the method base()
(or
equivalently base_ring()
):
sage: K.base()
Finite Field in z2 of size 5^2
It is also possible to build an extension on top of another extension, obtaining this way a tower of extensions:
sage: L.<b> = GF(5^8).over(K)
sage: L
Field in b with defining polynomial x^2 + (4*z2 + 3*a)*x + 1 - a over its base
sage: L.base()
Field in a with defining polynomial x^2 + z2*x + 4 over its base
sage: L.base().base()
Finite Field in z2 of size 5^2
The method bases()
gives access to the complete list of rings in
a tower:
sage: L.bases()
[Field in b with defining polynomial x^2 + (4*z2 + 3*a)*x + 1 - a over its base,
Field in a with defining polynomial x^2 + z2*x + 4 over its base,
Finite Field in z2 of size 5^2]
Once we have constructed an extension (or a tower of extensions), we have interesting methods attached to it. As a basic example, one can compute a basis of the top ring over any base in the tower:
sage: L.basis_over(K)
[1, b]
sage: L.basis_over(F)
[1, a, b, a*b]
When the base is omitted, the default is the natural base of the extension:
sage: L.basis_over()
[1, b]
The method sage.rings.ring_extension_element.RingExtensionWithBasis.vector()
computes the coordinates of an element according to the above basis:
sage: u = a + 2*b + 3*a*b
sage: u.vector() # over K
(a, 2 + 3*a)
sage: u.vector(F)
(0, 1, 2, 3)
One can also compute traces and norms with respect to any base of the tower:
sage: u.trace() # over K
(2*z2 + 1) + (2*z2 + 1)*a
sage: u.trace(F)
z2 + 1
sage: u.trace().trace() # over K, then over F
z2 + 1
sage: u.norm() # over K
(z2 + 1) + (4*z2 + 2)*a
sage: u.norm(F)
2*z2 + 2
And minimal polynomials:
sage: u.minpoly()
x^2 + ((3*z2 + 4) + (3*z2 + 4)*a)*x + (z2 + 1) + (4*z2 + 2)*a
sage: u.minpoly(F)
x^4 + (4*z2 + 4)*x^3 + x^2 + (z2 + 1)*x + 2*z2 + 2

EXAMPLES:

Forgetting a part of the multiplicative structure, the field L can be viewed as a vector space of dimension 3 over K, equipped with a distinguished basis, namely \((1, b, b^2)\):

Similarly, one can view L as a F-vector space of dimension 6:
sage: V, i, j, = L.free_module(F) sage: V Vector space of dimension 6 over Finite Field of size 11
In this case, the isomorphisms between \(V\) and \(L\) are given by the basis \((1, a, b, ab, b^2, ab^2)\):

- ngens(base=None)¶

base
.INPUT:
base
– a commutative ring (which might be itself an extension) orNone
(default:None
)
EXAMPLES:

- print_options(**options)¶
Update the printing options of this extension.
INPUT:
over
– an integer orInfinity
(default:0
); the maximum number of bases included in the printing of this extensionbase
– a base over which this extension is finite free; elements in this extension will be printed as a linear combinaison of a basis of this extension over the given base
EXAMPLES:
sage: A.<a> = GF(5^2).over() # over GF(5) sage: B.<b> = GF(5^4).over(A) sage: C.<c> = GF(5^12).over(B) sage: D.<d> = GF(5^24).over(C)
Observe what happens when we modify the option

:sage: D Field in d with defining polynomial x^2 + ((1 - a) + ((1 + 2*a) - b)*c + ((2 + a) + (1 - a)*b)*c^2)*x + c over its base sage: D.print_options(over=2) sage: D Field in d with defining polynomial x^2 + ((1 - a) + ((1 + 2*a) - b)*c + ((2 + a) + (1 - a)*b)*c^2)*x + c over Field in c with defining polynomial x^3 + (1 + (2 - a)*b)*x^2 + (2 + 2*b)*x - b over Field in b with defining polynomial x^2 + (3 - a)*x + a over its base sage: D.print_options(over=Infinity) sage: D Field in d with defining polynomial x^2 + ((1 - a) + ((1 + 2*a) - b)*c + ((2 + a) + (1 - a)*b)*c^2)*x + c over Field in c with defining polynomial x^3 + (1 + (2 - a)*b)*x^2 + (2 + 2*b)*x - b over Field in b with defining polynomial x^2 + (3 - a)*x + a over Field in a with defining polynomial x^2 + 4*x + 2 over Finite Field of size 5
