Berkovich Space over \(\CC_p\)#
The Berkovich affine line is the set of seminorms on \(\CC_p[x]\), with the weakest topology that makes the map \(| \cdot | \to |f|\) continuous for all \(f \in \CC_p[x]\). The Berkovich projective line is the one-point compactification of the Berkovich affine line.
The two main classes are Berkovich_Cp_Affine
and
Berkovich_Cp_Projective
, which implement the affine and
projective lines, respectively.
Berkovich_Cp_Affine
and Berkovich_Cp_Projective
take as input one of the following: the prime \(p\), a finite
extension of \(\QQ_p\), or a number field and a place.
For an exposition of Berkovich space over \(\CC_p\), see Chapter 6 of [Ben2019]. For a more involved exposition, see Chapter 1 and 2 of [BR2010].

The Berkovich affine line over \(\CC_p\).
The Berkovich affine line is the set of seminorms on \(\CC_p[x]\), with the weakest topology such that the map \(| \cdot | \to |f|\) is continuous for all \(f \in \CC_p[x]\).
We can represent the Berkovich affine line in two separate ways: either using a p-adic field to represent elements or using a number field to represent elements while storing an ideal of the ring of integers of the number field, which specifies an embedding of the number field into \(\CC_p\). See the examples.
INPUT:
base
– Three cases:a prime number \(p\). Centers of elements are then represented as points of \(\QQ_p\).
\(\QQ_p\) or a finite extension of \(\QQ_p\). Centers of elements are then represented as points of
base
.A number field \(K\). Centers of elements are then represented as points of \(K\).
ideal
– (optional) a prime ideal ofbase
. Must be specified if a number field is passed tobase
, otherwise it is ignored.
EXAMPLES:
sage: B = Berkovich_Cp_Affine(3); B Affine Berkovich line over Cp(3) of precision 20
We can create elements:
sage: B(-2) Type I point centered at 1 + 2*3 + 2*3^2 + 2*3^3 + 2*3^4 + 2*3^5 + 2*3^6 + 2*3^7 + 2*3^8 + 2*3^9 + 2*3^10 + 2*3^11 + 2*3^12 + 2*3^13 + 2*3^14 + 2*3^15 + 2*3^16 + 2*3^17 + 2*3^18 + 2*3^19 + O(3^20)
sage: B(1, 2) Type III point centered at 1 + O(3^20) of radius 2.00000000000000
For details on element creation, see the documentation of
Berkovich_Element_Cp_Affine
. Initializing by passing in \(\QQ_p\) looks the same:sage: B = Berkovich_Cp_Affine(Qp(3)); B Affine Berkovich line over Cp(3) of precision 20
However, this method allows for more control over behind-the-scenes conversion:
sage: B = Berkovich_Cp_Affine(Qp(3, 1)); B Affine Berkovich line over Cp(3) of precision 1 sage: B(1/2) Type I point centered at 2 + O(3)
Note that this point has very low precision, as
B
was initialized with a p-adic field of capped-relative precision one. For high precision, pass in a high precision p-adic field:sage: B = Berkovich_Cp_Affine(Qp(3, 1000)); B Affine Berkovich line over Cp(3) of precision 1000
Points of Berkovich space can be created from points of extensions of \(\QQ_p\):
sage: B = Berkovich_Cp_Affine(3) sage: A.<a> = Qp(3).extension(x^3 - 3) sage: B(a) Type I point centered at a + O(a^61)
For exact computation, a number field can be used:
sage: R.<x> = QQ[] sage: A.<a> = NumberField(x^3 + 20) sage: ideal = A.prime_above(3) sage: B = Berkovich_Cp_Affine(A, ideal); B Affine Berkovich line over Cp(3), with base Number Field in a with defining polynomial x^3 + 20
Number fields have a major advantage of exact computation.
Number fields also have added functionality. Arbitrary extensions of \(\QQ\) are supported, while there is currently limited functionality for extensions of \(\QQ_p\). As seen above, constructing a Berkovich space backed by a number field requires specifying an ideal of the ring of integers of the number field. Specifying the ideal uniquely specifies an embedding of the number field into \(\CC_p\).
Unlike in the case where Berkovich space is backed by a p-adic field, any point of a Berkovich space backed by a number field must be centered at a point of that number field:
sage: R.<x> = QQ[] sage: A.<a> = NumberField(x^3 + 20) sage: ideal = A.prime_above(3) sage: B = Berkovich_Cp_Affine(A, ideal) sage: C.<c> = NumberField(x^2 + 1) sage: B(c) Traceback (most recent call last): ... ValueError: could not convert c to Number Field in a with defining polynomial x^3 + 20

– (optional) a prime ideal ofbase

EXAMPLES:
sage: B = Berkovich_Cp_Projective(3); B Projective Berkovich line over Cp(3) of precision 20
Elements can be constructed:
sage: B(1/2) Type I point centered at (2 + 3 + 3^2 + 3^3 + 3^4 + 3^5 + 3^6 + 3^7 + 3^8 + 3^9 + 3^10 + 3^11 + 3^12 + 3^13 + 3^14 + 3^15 + 3^16 + 3^17 + 3^18 + 3^19 + O(3^20) : 1 + O(3^20))
sage: B(2, 1) Type II point centered at (2 + O(3^20) : 1 + O(3^20)) of radius 3^0
For details about element construction, see the documentation of
Berkovich_Element_Cp_Projective
. Initializing a Berkovich projective line by passing in a p-adic space looks the same:sage: B = Berkovich_Cp_Projective(Qp(3)); B Projective Berkovich line over Cp(3) of precision 20
However, this method allows for more control over behind-the-scenes conversion:
sage: S = Qp(3, 1) sage: B = Berkovich_Cp_Projective(S); B Projective Berkovich line over Cp(3) of precision 1 sage: Q1 = B(1/2); Q1 Type I point centered at (2 + O(3) : 1 + O(3))
Note that this point has very low precision, as S has low precision cap. Berkovich space can also be created over a number field, as long as an ideal is specified:
sage: R.<x> = QQ[] sage: A.<a> = NumberField(x^2 + 1) sage: ideal = A.prime_above(2) sage: B = Berkovich_Cp_Projective(A, ideal); B Projective Berkovich line over Cp(2), with base Number Field in a with defining polynomial x^2 + 1
Number fields have the benefit that computation is exact, but lack support for all of \(\CC_p\).
