Return the algebra of self over base_ring.
INPUT:
This returns the \(K\)-free module with basis indexed by \(S\), endowed with whatever structure can be induced from that of \(S\). Note that the category keyword needs to be fed with the structure on \(S\) to be used, not the structure that one wants to obtain on the result; see the examples below.
EXAMPLES:
If \(S\) is a monoid, the result is the monoid algebra \(KS\):
sage: S = Monoids().example(); S
An example of a monoid: the free monoid generated by ('a', 'b', 'c', 'd')
sage: A = S.algebra(QQ); A
Free module generated by An example of a monoid: the free monoid generated by ('a', 'b', 'c', 'd') over Rational Field

sage: A.category()

which is actually a Hopf algebra:
sage: A in HopfAlgebras(QQ)

sage: A = S.algebra(QQ, category = Sets()); A
Free module generated by General Linear Group of degree 4 over Rational Field over Rational Field
sage: A.category()
Category of set algebras over Rational Field
One may construct as well algebras of additive magmas, semigroups, monoids, or groups:

sage: U = S.algebra(QQ); U
Free module generated by An example of a commutative monoid: the free commutative monoid generated by ('a', 'b', 'c', 'd') over Rational Field
Despite saying “free module”, this is really an algebra and its elements can be multiplied:
sage: U in Algebras(QQ)
True
sage: (a,b,c,d) = S.additive_semigroup_generators()
sage: U(a) * U(b)
B[a + b]
Constructing the algebra of a set endowed with both an additive and a multiplicative structure is ambiguous:
sage: Z3 = IntegerModRing(3)
sage: A = Z3.algebra(QQ)
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
TypeError: `S = Ring of integers modulo 3` is both an additive and a multiplicative semigroup.
Constructing its algebra is ambiguous.
Please use, e.g., S.algebra(QQ, category = Semigroups())
The ambiguity can be resolved using the category argument:
sage: A = Z3.algebra(QQ, category = Monoids()); A
Free module generated by Ring of integers modulo 3 over Rational Field
sage: A.category()
Category of monoid algebras over Rational Field
sage: A = Z3.algebra(QQ, category = CommutativeAdditiveGroups()); A
Free module generated by Ring of integers modulo 3 over Rational Field
sage: A.category()
Category of commutative additive group algebras over Rational Field
Similarly, on , we obtain for additive magmas, monoids, groups.
Warning
As we have seen, in most practical use cases, the result is actually an algebra, hence the name of this method. In the other cases this name is misleading:
sage: A = Sets().example().algebra(QQ); A
Free module generated by Set of prime numbers (basic implementation) over Rational Field
sage: A.category()
Category of set algebras over Rational Field
sage: A in Algebras(QQ)
False
Suggestions for a uniform, meaningful, and non misleading name are welcome!
Return a (preferably typical) element of this parent.
This is used both for illustration and testing purposes. If the set self is empty, an_element() should raise the exception EmptySetError.
This default implementation calls _an_element_() and caches the result. Any parent should implement either an_element() or _an_element_().

self.cardinality() should return the cardinality of the set self as a sage Integer or as infinity.

Return the full subcategory of the facade objects of self.
What is a facade set?
Recall that, in Sage, sets are modelled by *parents*, and their elements know which distinguished set they belong to. For example, the ring of integers \(\ZZ\) is modelled by the parent ZZ, and integers know that they belong to this set:
sage: ZZ
Integer Ring
sage: 42.parent()
Integer Ring
Sometimes, it is convenient to represent the elements of a parent P by elements of some other parent. For example, the elements of the set of prime numbers are represented by plain integers:
sage: Primes()
Set of all prime numbers: 2, 3, 5, 7, ...
sage: p = Primes().an_element(); p
43
sage: p.parent()
Integer Ring
In this case, P is called a facade set.
This feature is advertised through the category of \(P\):
sage: Primes().category()
Category of facade infinite enumerated sets
sage: Sets().Facade()
Category of facade sets
Typical use cases include modeling a subset of an existing parent:
sage: Set([4,6,9]) # random
{4, 6, 9}
sage: Sets().Facade().example()
An example of facade set: the monoid of positive integers
or the union of several parents:
sage: Sets().Facade().example("union")
An example of a facade set: the integers completed by +-infinity
or endowing an existing parent with more (or less!) structure:
sage: Posets().example("facade")
An example of a facade poset: the positive integers ordered by divisibility
Let us investigate in detail a close variant of this last example: let \(P\) be set of divisors of \(12\) partially ordered by divisibility. There are two options for representing its elements:
as plain integers:
sage: P = Poset((divisors(12), attrcall("divides")), facade=True)
as integers, modified to be aware that their parent is \(P\):
sage: Q = Poset((divisors(12), attrcall("divides")), facade=False)
The advantage of option 1. is that one needs not do conversions back and forth between \(P\) and \(\ZZ\). The disadvantage is that this introduces an ambiguity when writing \(2 < 3\): does this compare \(2\) and \(3\) w.r.t. the natural order on integers or w.r.t. divisibility?:
sage: 2 < 3
True
To raise this ambiguity, one needs to explicitly specify the underlying poset as in \(2 <_P 3\):
sage: P = Posets().example("facade")
sage: P.lt(2,3)
False
On the other hand, with option 2. and once constructed, the elements know unambiguously how to compare themselves:
sage: Q(2) < Q(3)
False
sage: Q(2) < Q(6)
True
Beware that P(2) is still the integer \(2\). Therefore P(2) < P(3) still compares \(2\) and \(3\) as integers!:
sage: P(2) < P(3)
True
In short \(P\) being a facade parent is one of the programmatic counterparts (with e.g. coercions) of the usual mathematical idiom: “for ease of notation, we identify an element of \(P\) with the corresponding integer”. Too many identifications lead to confusion; the lack thereof leads to heavy, if not obfuscated, notations. Finding the right balance is an art, and even though there are common guidelines, it is ultimately up to the writer to choose which identifications to do. This is no different in code.

Return the full subcategory of the objects of self constructed by isomorphism.
Given a concrete category As() (i.e. a subcategory of Sets()), As().IsomorphicObjects() returns the category of objects of As() endowed with a distinguished description as the image of some other object of As() by an isomorphism in this category.
See Subquotients() for background.
EXAMPLES:
In the following example, \(A\) is defined as the image by \(x\mapsto x^2\) of the finite set \(B = \{1,2,3\}\):
sage: A = FiniteEnumeratedSets().IsomorphicObjects().example(); A
The image by some isomorphism of An example of a finite enumerated set: {1,2,3}
Since \(B\) is a finite enumerated set, so is \(A\):
sage: A in FiniteEnumeratedSets()
True
sage: A.cardinality()
3
sage: A.list()
[1, 4, 9]
The isomorphism from \(B\) to \(A\) is available as:
sage: A.retract(3)
9
and its inverse as:
sage: A.lift(9)
3
It often is natural to declare those morphisms as coercions so that one can do A(b) and B(a) to go back and forth between \(A\) and \(B\) (TODO: refer to a category example where the maps are declared as a coercion). This is not done by default. Indeed, in many cases one only wants to transport part of the structure of \(B\) to \(A\). Assume for example, that one wants to construct the set of integers \(B=ZZ\), endowed with max as addition, and + as multiplication instead of the usual + and *. One can construct \(A\) as isomorphic to \(B\) as an infinite enumerated set. However \(A\) is not isomorphic to \(B\) as a ring; for example, for \(a\in A\) and \(a\in B\), the expressions \(a+A(b)\) and \(B(a)+b\) give completely different results; hence we would not want the expression \(a+b\) to be implicitly resolved to any one of above two, as the coercion mechanism would do.
Coercions also cannot be used with facade parents (see Sets.Facade) like in the example above.
We now look at a category of isomorphic objects:
sage: C = Sets().IsomorphicObjects(); C
Category of isomorphic objects of sets
sage: C.super_categories()
[Category of subobjects of sets, Category of quotients of sets]
sage: C.all_super_categories()
[Category of isomorphic objects of sets,
Category of subobjects of sets,
Category of quotients of sets,
Category of subquotients of sets,
Category of sets,
Category of sets with partial maps,
Category of objects]
Unless something specific about isomorphic objects is implemented for this category, one actually get an optimized super category:
sage: C = Semigroups().IsomorphicObjects(); C
Join of Category of quotients of semigroups
and Category of isomorphic objects of sets

TESTS:

Return the full subcategory of the objects of self constructed as quotients.
Given a concrete category As() (i.e. a subcategory of Sets()), As().Quotients() returns the category of objects of As() endowed with a distinguished description as quotient (in fact homomorphic image) of some other object of As().
Implementing an object of As().Quotients() is done in the same way as for As().Subquotients(); namely by providing an ambient space and a lift and a retract map. See Subquotients() for detailed instructions.

Return the full subcategory of the objects of self constructed as subobjects.
Given a concrete category As() (i.e. a subcategory of Sets()), As().Subobjects() returns the category of objects of As() endowed with a distinguished embedding into some other object of As().
Implementing an object of As().Subobjects() is done in the same way as for As().Subquotients(); namely by providing an ambient space and a lift and a retract map. In the case of a trivial embedding, the two maps will typically be identity maps that just change the parent of their argument. See Subquotients() for detailed instructions.

[Category of subobjects of sets,
Category of subquotients of sets,
Category of sets,
Category of sets with partial maps,
Category of objects]
Unless something specific about subobjects is implemented for this category, one actually gets an optimized super category:
sage: C = Semigroups().Subobjects(); C
Join of Category of subquotients of semigroups
and Category of subobjects of sets
The caller is responsible for checking that the given category admits a well defined category of subobjects.
TESTS:
sage: Semigroups().Subobjects().is_subcategory(Semigroups().Subquotients())
True
sage: TestSuite(C).run()
Return the full subcategory of the objects of self constructed as subquotients.
Given a concrete category self == As() (i.e. a subcategory of Sets()), As().Subquotients() returns the category of objects of As() endowed with a distinguished description as subquotient of some other object of As().
EXAMPLES:
sage: Monoids().Subquotients()
Category of subquotients of monoids
A parent \(A\) in As() is further in As().Subquotients() if there is a distinguished parent \(B\) in As(), called the ambient set, a subobject \(B'\) of \(B\), and a pair of maps:
called respectively the lifting map and retract map such that \(r \circ l\) is the identity of \(A\) and \(r\) is a morphism in As().
Todo
Draw the typical commutative diagram.
It follows that, for each operation \(op\) of the category, we have some property like:
This allows for implementing the operations on \(A\) from those on \(B\).
The two most common use cases are:
- homomorphic images (or quotients), when \(B'=B\), \(r\) is an homomorphism from \(B\) to \(A\) (typically a canonical quotient map), and \(l\) a section of it (not necessarily a homomorphism); see Quotients();
- subobjects (up to an isomorphism), when \(l\) is an embedding from \(A\) into \(B\); in this case, \(B'\) is typically isomorphic to \(A\) through the inverse isomorphisms \(r\) and \(l\); see Subobjects();
Note
Assumptions:
For any category As(), As().Subquotients() is a subcategory of As().
Example: a subquotient of a group is a group (e.g., a left or right quotient of a group by a non-normal subgroup is not in this category).
This construction is covariant: if As() is a subcategory of Bs(), then As().Subquotients() is a subcategory of Bs().Subquotients().
Example: if \(A\) is a subquotient of \(B\) in the category of groups, then it is also a subquotient of \(B\) in the category of monoids.
If the user (or a program) calls As().Subquotients(), then it is assumed that subquotients are well defined in this category. This is not checked, and probably never will be. Note that, if a category As() does not specify anything about its subquotients, then its subquotient category looks like this:
sage: EuclideanDomains().Subquotients()
Join of Category of euclidean domains
and Category of subquotients of monoids
Interface: the ambient set \(B\) of \(A\) is given by A.ambient(). The subset \(B'\) needs not be specified, so the retract map is handled as a partial map from \(B\) to \(A\).
The lifting and retract map are implemented respectively as methods A.lift(a) and A.retract(b). As a shorthand for the former, one can use alternatively a.lift():
sage: S = Semigroups().Subquotients().example(); S
An example of a (sub)quotient semigroup: a quotient of the left zero semigroup
sage: S.ambient()
An example of a semigroup: the left zero semigroup
sage: S(3).lift().parent()
An example of a semigroup: the left zero semigroup
sage: S(3) * S(1) == S.retract( S(3).lift() * S(1).lift() )
True
See S? for more.
Todo
use a more interesting example, like \(\ZZ/n\ZZ\).
