Sage: Ticket #4539: plural wrapper
http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/4539
<p>
During SD10 in Nancy, Michael Brickenstein and Burcin Erocal worked on making Plural (the non-commutative extension of Singular) accessible from Sage. Burcin and Michael also worked at the Plural wrapper on SD 23.5 in Kaiserslautern. Oleksandr Motsak and Alexander Dreyer continued this at SD 24 in Linz.
</p>
<p>
The patches that resulted from this work are attached.
</p>
<p>
Newest functionality:
</p>
<ul><li>non-commutative rings/polynomials/ideals are fully featured classes now (no deriving from commutative ones)!
</li><li>coercion from basering/Integer types (still needs tests)
</li><li>flag to check degeneracy conditions on init
</li><li>relations for non-commutative rings
</li><li>most relevant functions for rings/polynomials/ideals (mostly adopted from MPolynomialRing_libsingular/MPolynomialRing_libsingular/...) e.g. std/twostd/syzygy_module/lc/lm/lt/monomial operations
</li><li><a class="missing wiki">RingWrap?</a> and <a class="missing wiki">TermOrder?</a> were extended
</li><li>quick and dirty conversion of <a class="missing wiki">RingWrap?</a> to Sage rings (needs some care as the resulting rings may not be unique and therefore may confuse coercion)
</li><li>quotient of a non-commutative ring by a two-sided Groebner basis
</li><li>shortcut to create graded commutative algebras: SCA
</li></ul><p>
Possible topics that need work are:
</p>
<ul><li>put the files in sage/algebra/ ???
</li><li>make sure element does not export functions it doesn't support (e.g. gcd)
</li><li>predefined structures from the library
</li></ul><p>

I didn't have a chance to test the rebased patch, I had to leave right after I finished merging the rejected parts. I just wanted to get it out there in case it worked.

<p>
I can also reproduce the crash. I'll take a look at it now and try to upload a patch that works.

Nicolas, it would be great if you could help with the review. We are pretty confident with the interface to Singular and low-level code, since, as you can also see from the comments on the ticket, many Singular and Sage developers were involved in writing the code. However, we added many of the noncommutative structures on the spot (in a late night coding sprint) as we needed them. Another pair of eyes checking the mathematical structures and design would be really useful.
</p>
<p>
Though I think we should try to get this patch in as soon as possible. I'm sure quite a few people would be interested in the functionality of Plural. We can always work on providing a better interface later, as the number of users/developers increases.

I don't want to promise much at this time because I am already (very) late with a couple other reviews. But since the code is going to very useful for my research right now, I can promise to provide feedback for how it feels in practice!

<p>
I started playing with ideals. Currently, one creates an ideal I, and
then when one calls I.std() or I.twostd() to create a new left or
twosided ideal, and actually compute the Groebner basis. What about
the following variants:
</p>
<p>
(A) Take the side decision at the time the ideal is created:
</p>
<pre class="wiki"> sage: I = W.ideal([...], side=...)
</pre><p>
(to be documented in <tt></tt>W.ideal?<tt></tt>).
</p>
<p>
With that, <tt></tt>I<tt></tt> would be well defined as an ideal; otherwise it is
more a <tt></tt>collection of polynomials<em> and the name is misleading.
</em></p>
<p>
(B) About computing the Grobner basis:
</p>
<pre class="wiki"> sage: I.groebner_basis()
</pre><p>
or:
</p>
<pre class="wiki"> sage: I.std()
</pre><p>
would compute the groebner basis, store it for later calculations, and
return it as a list of polynomials rather than a new ideal.
</p>
<p>
I haven't actually played with ideals in Sage; so maybe point (B) is
just how things are with commutative ideals in Sage, and consistency
should take precedence.
</p>
<p>
Cheers,

Currently, if R is a commutative ring and L is a list of elements of R, one may use the shorthand notation <tt>I = R*L</tt> or <tt>I = L*R</tt> to create an ideal. It seems natural to me to extend this to the non-commutative case: <tt>R*L</tt> for left ideal, <tt>L*R</tt> for right ideal, and <tt>R*L*R</tt> for two-sided ideal.
</p>
<p>
How to implement it? Well, on could have a base class for ideals over non-commutative rings (let's call it <tt>NCIdeal</tt>), and derive from it <tt>NCIdeal_left</tt>, <tt>NCIdeal_right</tt>, <tt>NCIdeal_twodsided</tt>.
</p>
<p>
Then, one has to modify the multiplication method for rings so that sidedness is taken care of (there is a method ideal_class(), that probably needs to accept an optional argument "side"). And of course, the one-sided ideal classes need a multiplication method as well.
</p>
<p>
And then, <tt>NCIdeal_twodsided.groebner_basis()</tt> would yield a two-sided Gröbner basis, while <tt>NCIdeal_left/right.groebner_basis()</tt> would only yield a one-sided Gröbner basis, of course unless a two-sided Gröbner basis is requested by using an optional argument.

<p>
By the way: right ideals are not yet handled yet, right? Would it be a lot of work? It's just that the ideals I am currently playing with are right ideals, and I keep mixing myself up when playing with the "dualized" version I had to write in Sage.

+1 for the implementation proposal!
</p>
<p>
I also like that shorthand syntax for interactive usage. However, in
code, I prefer using something more explicit like R.ideal(L,side=...).
Besides, having an R.ideal method also provides with:
</p>
<ul><li>a good place for advertising (it appears in R.<tab>), documenting,
testing the feature and its shorthand
</li><li>an easy way for subclasses of (the class of) R to override this
method without having to worry about overloading/coercion/...

If I understand correctly, this patch is the only one, right? So, it would be a good thing to try whether it needs to be rebased again.

Currently, I have a high motivation to have the noncommutative stuff (including letterplace!) in libsingular. So, I hope the work on this ticket and on <a class="closed ticket" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/7797" title="enhancement: Full interface to letterplace from singular (closed: fixed)">#7797</a> can be resumed.

It turned out that the old patch did not apply, since meanwhile the libsingular options are dealt with in a different way. I have rebased the patch, and also adopted the new option syntax.

It would be great to have this in Sage!
</p>
<p>
I'm seeing some problems with the patch. First, it doesn't apply cleanly to Sage 4.7.alpha1. I haven't tried applying to 4.6.2. I rebased it by hand.
</p>
<p>
Second, the change
</p>
<div class="code"><pre><span class="gd">- block_name, block_length, _ = re.split(length_pattern,block)
</span><span class="gi">+ block_name, block_length, _ = re.split(pattern, block.strip())
</span></pre></div><p>
in term_order.py is problematic, because "pattern" is not defined anywhere. Replacing it by "length_pattern" seems to work.
</p>
<p>
Third, in multipolynomial_ideal.py, <tt>_groebner_basis_libsingular</tt> is being called with keywords "deg_bound" and "mult_bound", but it doesn't accept those keywords as valid arguments. Should we add <tt>*args, **kwds</tt> to the argument list? Or should those keywords be dealt with explicitly? I tried adding generic <tt>*args</tt> and <tt>**kwds</tt>, but doctesting on that file segfaults.
</p>
<p>
When I doctest the whole Sage library after making these changes, I get the following failures:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">The following tests failed:

At sage days 34, we try to rebase the old patch.

We were just dubling the work, it seems. I had rebased my old patch and was running tests (don't know the outcome).

I have attached my experimental rebasement (relative to <a class="closed ticket" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/7797" title="enhancement: Full interface to letterplace from singular (closed: fixed)">#7797</a> on top of sage-4.7.2.alpha3), but not all is good.
</p>
<p>
There are quite a lot of doctest failures, including some very wrong arithmetical results in plural.pyx.
</p>
<p>
Less dramatic: There are some zero division errors (for example in doctests of mul
ti_polynomial_libsingular.pyx) where the expected error message was "rational division by zero", but now there is <em>no</em> error message (but there is a <tt>ZeroDivisionError</tt>, at least).
</p>
<p>
There is a segment fault in the tests of multi_polynomial_ideal.py. I guess it is the same segfault that also occurs in some elliptic curves tests.
</p>
<p>
Alexander, when you said that your broken Sage installation was to blame: Do you mean that the tests are mostly passing with your patch?

sage: x/0

<p>
Here is the explanation:
</p>
<p>
Let <tt>P = QQ[x,y,z]</tt>. Since coercion is now done properly, x/0 is first converting 0 into P and tries to invert it there. The result is a naked <tt>ZeroDivisionError</tt> in
sage.libs.singular.polynomial.singular_polynomial_div_coeff.
Before, it used to invert 0 as a rational number, resulting in a <tt>ZeroDivisionError</tt> with some error message.
</p>
<p>
Burcin and I agree that it is ok to have the <tt>ZeroDivisionError</tt> without a message: What else could it state but "don't divide by zero"?
</p>
<p>
So, it is not an issue.

It turns out that one gets the <em>same</em> stupid result with an unpatched sage-4.7.2.alpha2. Burcin told me that this patch is supposed to fix it. Apparently it fails, and we need to understand why it fails.

Concerning <a class="attachment" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/attachment/ticket/4539/trac4539_monomial_quotient.patch" title="Attachment 'trac4539_monomial_quotient.patch' in Ticket #4539">trac4539_monomial_quotient.patch</a><a class="trac-rawlink" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/raw-attachment/ticket/4539/trac4539_monomial_quotient.patch" title="Download"></a>: I am not sure if it is the right thing to do. I think that monomial_quotient is a method that should be as fast as possible, since in some situations it is used very frequently. In these situations, it is always the case that one monomial <em>does</em> divide the other. Hence, for the application, it is a bad idea to have a redundant sanity test in monomial_quotient. I'd rather have it return a wrong result when using it in a wrong way.
</p>
<p>
Note that <a class="attachment" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/attachment/ticket/4539/trac4539_kwds.patch" title="Attachment 'trac4539_kwds.patch' in Ticket #4539">trac4539_kwds.patch</a><a class="trac-rawlink" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/raw-attachment/ticket/4539/trac4539_kwds.patch" title="Download"></a> is not needed for my patch - I already have *args in it.
</p>
<p>
We have already briefly discussed why I think that <a class="attachment" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/attachment/ticket/4539/trac4539_lmul.patch" title="Attachment 'trac4539_lmul.patch' in Ticket #4539">trac4539_lmul.patch</a><a class="trac-rawlink" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/raw-attachment/ticket/4539/trac4539_lmul.patch" title="Download"></a> probably is not a good approach: x._rmul_(c) and x._lmul_(c) (by specification of the coercion model) can assume that the argument c belongs to x.parent().base_ring(). In particular, I don't believe that c can actually be a non-commutative polynomial.
</p>
<p>
Can you please provide an example that was segfaulting without the lmul-patch?

I can already confirm that ther <em>is</em> a segfault without the lmul patch. So, I'll try to analyse what arguments are passed to _rmul_ / _lmul_. If I remember correctly, polynomial rings do not use the current coercion model. Hence, it is perhaps no surprise that _rmul_ and _lmul_ do not do what we expect.

It is very strange: Apparently, a different lmul method fixes the segfault. However, when I insert a print statement in the unpatched lmul method, then I find that it is actually not executed directly before segfaulting.
</p>
<p>
Alexander, how did you found that a change in lmul could fix it?

Alexander has just explained the lmul problem to me. It was an oversight in the original patch, where self._lmul_(right) was calling right._rmul_(self), which is of course wrong, since the argument to _rmul_ must be an element of the base ring. It should correctly be self._rmul_(right).
</p>
<p>
Alexander just told me that he agrees in dropping the (redundant) test in monomial_quotient.

I get a doctest failure in sage/rings/polynomial/multi_polynomial_ideal.py. There, a protocol of a Gröbner basis computation is printed where we do not expect it.

The problem: If one runs the test separately, it works fine:

So, apparently another test has a side effect. I tried to identify it (e.g., a test that sets verbosity and forgets to reset it), but I did not succeed. Also I wonder why one first sees the result and only later sees the protocol.

It turned out that I misinterpreted the error: The actual error was wrong line breaks in the expected warning message. The protocol from Singular is printed to stdout, and apparently it was just by accident (though reproducible) that I saw it in the test log.
</p>
<p>
Note that the warning message misspells the word "guaranteed" (namely "guarantied"). I fixed that misspelling as well, and I also introduced nicer (I think) line breaks for the warning.

Glad that this is fixed. I hope the tests pass by now.

By the way: How should reviewing be done in this case? I have no overview who wrote what (i.e., who can <em>review</em> what), and I think many people contributed to it.

Concerning reviewing: Would it be OK that we all comment whether we are happy with the current patch, and that it constitutes a positive review if all are happy with it and nobody has a veto? Martin seems to agree.

I am writing a reviewer patch, since several doc strings needs reformatting.
</p>
<p>
Question:
</p>
<p>
In sage/algebras/free_algebra.py in the method g_algebra, I find the statement:
"By default is assumed, that two variables commute." I don't understand that statement. Is it meant "If there are only two variables then they commute"? Or "Any two variables commute" (hopefully not)? Or "There are two variables that commute" (but which)? Can you provide an example for that default, and also show how (if possible) the default can be overridden?
</p>

<p>
Here's a report on features that I implemented today (not posted yet), missing features, and I also have some questions for you:
</p>
<p>
<span class="underline">Sidedness of ideals</span>
</p>
<p>
By <a class="closed ticket" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/11068" title="enhancement: Basic implementation of one- and twosided ideals of non-commutative rings, ... (closed: fixed)">#11068</a>, we can have one- and two-sided ideals. Oleksander told me that Singular can only compute left or twosided Gröbner bases. Therefore, I think non-commutative polynomial ideals should refuse to be right-sided. The default should be left ideal. If the ideal is defined as a two-sided ideal, then std should return the same as twostd. Here is an example:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">sage: A.<x,y,z> = FreeAlgebra(QQ, 3)
sage: H = A.g_algebra({y*x:x*y-z, z*x:x*z+2*x, z*y:y*z-2*y})
sage: H.inject_variables()
Defining x, y, z
sage: JL = H.ideal([x^3, y^3, z^3 - 4*z])
sage: JL
Left Ideal (x^3, y^3, z^3 - 4*z) of Noncommutative Multivariate Polynomial Ring in x, y, z over Rational Field, nc-relations: {y*x: x*y - z, z*y: y*z - 2*y, z*x: x*z + 2*x}
sage: JL.std()
Left Ideal (z^3 - 4*z, y*z^2 - 2*y*z, x*z^2 + 2*x*z, 2*x*y*z - z^2 - 2*z, y^3, x^3) of Noncommutative Multivariate Polynomial Ring in x, y, z over Rational Field, nc-relations: {y*x: x*y - z, z*y: y*z - 2*y, z*x: x*z + 2*x}
sage: JT = H.ideal([x^3, y^3, z^3 - 4*z], side='twosided')
sage: JT
Twosided Ideal (x^3, y^3, z^3 - 4*z) of Noncommutative Multivariate Polynomial Ring in x, y, z over Rational Field, nc-relations: {y*x: x*y - z, z*y: y*z - 2*y, z*x: x*z + 2*x}
sage: JT.std()
Twosided Ideal (z^3 - 4*z, y*z^2 - 2*y*z, x*z^2 + 2*x*z, y^2*z - 2*y^2, 2*x*y*z - z^2 - 2*z, x^2*z + 2*x^2, y^3, x*y^2 - y*z, x^2*y - x*z - 2*x, x^3) of Noncommutative Multivariate Polynomial Ring in x, y, z over Rational Field, nc-relations: {y*x: x*y - z, z*y: y*z - 2*y, z*x: x*z + 2*x}
sage: JT.std() == JL.twostd()
True
</pre><p>
I think that's a good solution.
</p>
<p>
<span class="underline">Cache</span>
</p>
<p>
I added a cached_method decorator to std and twostd - I guess it is obvious that the result of a GB computation should be cached.
</p>
<p>
<strong>Question:</strong> Should g-algebras be unique parents? If you agree that they should be, then I can try to implement it.
</p>
<p>
<span class="underline">Category</span>
</p>
<p>
A proper initialisation of non-commutative polynomial rings in the category of algebras was missing and is now added:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">sage: H._is_category_initialized()
True
sage: H.category()
Category of algebras over Rational Field
</pre><p>
<span class="underline">Pickling</span>
</p>
<p>
The test suite does not pass. Among other things, pickling of g-algebras has simply been forgotten. This certainly must be fixed:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">sage: dumps(H)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
TypeError Traceback (most recent call last)
...
TypeError: expected string or Unicode object, NoneType found
</pre><p>
It could be that, by using a <tt>UniqueFactory</tt> or <tt>UniqueRepresentation</tt>, the pickling problem automatically vanishes. Otherwise, a <tt>__reduce__</tt> method must be implemented.
</p>
<p>
<span class="underline">Generator names for g-algebras</span>
</p>
<p>
It should be possible to choose names in the <tt>g_algebra()</tt> method.
</p>
<p>
<span class="underline">Quotients</span>
</p>
<p>
There is a custom <tt>quotient()</tt> method for g-algebras (not using <a class="closed ticket" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/11068" title="enhancement: Basic implementation of one- and twosided ideals of non-commutative rings, ... (closed: fixed)">#11068</a>). The question is: Is that really a quotient? It isn't printed as such, and the quotient relations are not used in arithmetic nor in comparison:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">sage: A.<x,y,z> = FreeAlgebra(QQ, 3)
sage: H = A.g_algebra({y*x:x*y-z, z*x:x*z+2*x, z*y:y*z-2*y})
sage: H.inject_variables()
Defining x, y, z
sage: I = H.ideal([y^2, x^2, z^2-H.one_element()],coerce=False)
sage: Q = H.quotient(I); Q
Noncommutative Multivariate Polynomial Ring in x, y, z over Rational Field, nc-relations: {y*x: x*y - z, z*y: y*z - 2*y, z*x: x*z + 2*x}
sage: Q.relations()
{y*x: x*y - z, z*y: y*z - 2*y, z*x: x*z + 2*x}
sage: I.twostd()
Twosided Ideal (z^2 - 1, y*z - y, x*z + x, y^2, 2*x*y - z - 1, x^2) of Noncommutative Multivariate Polynomial Ring in x, y, z over Rational Field, nc-relations: {y*x: x*y - z, z*y: y*z - 2*y, z*x: x*z + 2*x}
sage: Q.2^2
z^2
sage: Q.2^2 == Q.one_element()
False
</pre><p>
<strong>Question:</strong> Did I misinterprete it? Hence, is there a way to make Q show that <tt>Q.2^2</tt> is equal to one?
</p>
<p>
Otherwise, the custom <tt>quotient()</tt> should be dropped. <a class="closed ticket" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/11068" title="enhancement: Basic implementation of one- and twosided ideals of non-commutative rings, ... (closed: fixed)">#11068</a> provides the framework for nc-quotient rings; one just needs to add a <tt>I.reduce(p)</tt> method to our ideals (which is missing anyway).
</p>
<p>
<span class="underline">Doc strings</span>
</p>
<p>
I fixed various wrong doc string formats. Of course, after the changes mentioned above, some doc tests need to be modified.

The patch that I have just attached provides uniqueness of the parent (using a <tt>UniqueFactory</tt>) and pickling for nc rings and polynomials.
</p>
<p>
In short:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">sage: A.<x,y,z> = FreeAlgebra(QQ, 3)
sage: H = A.g_algebra({y*x:x*y-z, z*x:x*z+2*x, z*y:y*z-2*y})
sage: H is loads(dumps(H))
True
sage: TestSuite(H).run()
</pre><p>
Doc tests still need to be updated, though. I also think that normal form computation should be easy to implement.

<p>
I have updated the second patch (adding a commit message), and I added a third patch. It provides a non-commutative "Gröbner strategy", normal form computation, and thus quotient rings of g-algebras.
</p>
<p>
Note that the quotients use the general framework from <a class="closed ticket" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/11068" title="enhancement: Basic implementation of one- and twosided ideals of non-commutative rings, ... (closed: fixed)">#11068</a>. They <em>should</em> simply be g-algebras as well. But I suggest that this will be done on a different ticket.
</p>
<p>
With the new patch, one can do:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">sage: A.<x,y,z> = FreeAlgebra(QQ, 3)
sage: H.<x,y,z> = A.g_algebra({y*x:x*y-z, z*x:x*z+2*x, z*y:y*z-2*y})
sage: I = H.ideal([y^2, x^2, z^2-H.one_element()],coerce=False, side='twosided')
sage: Q = H.quotient(I); Q
Quotient of Noncommutative Multivariate Polynomial Ring in x, y, z
over Rational Field, nc-relations: {y*x: x*y - z, z*y: y*z - 2*y,
z*x: x*z + 2*x} by the ideal (y^2, x^2, z^2 - 1)
sage: Q.2^2 == Q.one_element() # indirect doctest
True
</pre><p>
Here, we see that the relation that we just found in the quotient is actually a consequence of the given relations:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">sage: I.twostd()
Twosided Ideal (z^2 - 1, y*z - y, x*z + x, y^2, 2*x*y - z - 1, x^2)
of Noncommutative Multivariate Polynomial Ring in x, y, z over
Rational Field, nc-relations: {y*x: x*y - z, z*y: y*z - 2*y, z*x: x*z + 2*x}
</pre><p>
Note that reduction of polynomials by a list of polynomials is, in general, not a normal form. However, reduction of a polynomial by an ideal uses a two-sided Gröbner basis and is thus a normal form.
</p>
<p>
I just thought that it would better be reduction by a left Gröbner basis, if the ideal is just a left ideal. OK, doing it soon...

The third patch is now modified, so that reduction wrt a left ideal is computed with a left (not a two-sided) Gröbner basis.

It needs work, since the documentation is not complete and since certainly several doc tests need to be modified. But feel free to test the new patches...

<p>
Sorry, I couldn't resist to add one more feature: Ideal containment, which is a direct application of normal form computation.
</p>
<p>
With the new version of the third patch, we have:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">sage: A.<x,y,z> = FreeAlgebra(QQ, 3)
sage: H.<x,y,z> = A.g_algebra({y*x:x*y-z, z*x:x*z+2*x, z*y:y*z-2*y})
sage: JL = H.ideal([x^3, y^3, z^3 - 4*z])
sage: JL.std()

The fourth patch does not provide a new feature, but only fixes of bugs, of the doc string formatting, and of the doc tests.
</p>
<p>
Since I do not have Sage locally, I'd appreciate if one of you could build the documentation and see if it looks nice.
</p>
<p>
Not a feature, but a fix concerns the hash: If one constructs a g-algebra as one is supposed to (<tt>g_algeba</tt> method resp. unique factory) then the g-algebra is a unique parent. Hence, <tt>id(self)</tt> is a good hash for it, and <tt>__cmp__</tt> can be removed.
</p>
<p>
Note that the hash in Sage is allowed to change from session to session, so, <tt>id(self)</tt> is fine - see <tt>UniqueRepresentation.__hash__</tt>. Of course, one can destroy the uniqueness on purpose, but that's not our problem.
</p>
<p>
Tests in sage/libs/singular, multi_polynomial_ideal.py and plural.pyx pass. I am now running all doc tests, but I think it is OK to put it as "needs review".
</p>
<p>
Concerning review: I think we should review each other's code. So, in particular, one of you should please review my last three patches.
</p>
<p>
Please verify if I got the credits (author list) right.

It turned out that the element constructor of ideal monoids changed a left ideal into a twosided ideal, which (together with the missing uniqueness of ideal monoids) led to errors in a <tt>loads(dumps(...)==...</tt> test.

One remark: It happened to me recently that I tried to qimport a patch from trac, but my university had a proxy, and for some reason it thought that the patch is cached. I therefore switched the cache off, for the computer in my office. That is where I test the patches.
</p>
<p>
But Burcin just told me that they have a proxy here as well. So, could it be that you tried to download the latest patch version, but your proxy only provided you with a cached but outdated version of the patches?
</p>
<p>
The other possibility is that I thought I have posted the patch version that I have on my computer in my office, but in fact posted an outdated version that I have on my netbook here. Testing it now.

I found that the function <tt>new_NRing</tt>, that is supposed to return a valid <tt>NCPolynomialRing_plural</tt> out of a ring wrap, is broken. Important data, namely the matrices c and d, are left as <tt>None</tt>. Hence, for a ring produced with <tt>new_NRing</tt>, pickling won't work at all.
</p>
<p>
The question is whether we can leave it broken for now, and fix it separately, or leave this ticket open and "needs work". How shall we proceed?

<p>
I suggest that we leave stuff as it is now, so that it can be merged and we can build on top of it. Therefore, I revert it to "needs review".
</p>
<p>
If I am not mistaken, <tt>SCA</tt> is a special case in Singular anyway, and it is a huge difference whether one works in an <tt>SCA</tt> or in an isomorphic general g-algebra quotient (Oleksandr, could you tell how the ring should be created in this case? I guess the function <tt>SCA</tt> in the patch does not do the right thing).
</p>
<p>
I believe that there should be a sub-class of <tt>NCPolynomialRing_plural</tt> for general quotients of g-algebras, and then a sub-sub-class for SCA that uses the specialised implementation from Singular. But that should be on <a class="new ticket" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/11878" title="enhancement: Proper implementation of quotients of g-algebras and polynomial rings (new)">#11878</a>.

<p>
SCA structure is _autodetected_ upon creation of a GR-algebra (<tt>qring</tt>) in runtime. Therefore one should not use an extra method for this: just create a GRing and its quotient by correct twosided ideal there.
</p>
<p>
Test: if SCA implementation is used then <tt>y*y == 0;</tt> for each non-commutative (odd degree) variable <tt>y</tt>.

Hoorray! The other doctest error was even easier to fix: It has been a new test, and I simply had a typo in it.
</p>
<p>
Because of <a class="closed ticket" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/11339" title="defect: Refcounting for Singular rings (closed: fixed)">#11339</a> and <a class="closed ticket" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/10903" title="defect: Update Singular to 3-1-3-3 (closed: fixed)">#10903</a>, I had to change some lines in the code. In order to make the changes more easily visible, I attached the new patches under a new name, so that you can compare them with the old patches.

<p>
Could you please have a look whether we can return to the positive review?

Sorry, I had to produce a new version of the last patch: The first patch has introduced a wrong instance of the <tt>..todo::</tt> markup. The docbuilder complained about it. Since <a class="attachment" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/attachment/ticket/4539/trac4539_fix_docs_rel10903.patch" title="Attachment 'trac4539_fix_docs_rel10903.patch' in Ticket #4539">trac4539_fix_docs_rel10903.patch</a><a class="trac-rawlink" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/raw-attachment/ticket/4539/trac4539_fix_docs_rel10903.patch" title="Download"></a> is responsible for fixing the doc strings, I fixed it there.
</p>
<p>
So, please replace the last patch with the new version, and also try to build the documentation (<tt>sage -docbuild reference html</tt>).

Hi Alexander,
</p>
<p>
Note that there is a new patch at <a class="closed ticket" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/10903" title="defect: Update Singular to 3-1-3-3 (closed: fixed)">#10903</a> (where the docbuild crash was introduced), and it fixes the problem in a more satisfying way. The problem was that under certain circumstances the name of a deprecated Cython method could not be determined - but with the new patch from <a class="closed ticket" href="http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/10903" title="defect: Update Singular to 3-1-3-3 (closed: fixed)">#10903</a> (actually there are TWO new patches) the problem is fixed.
</p>
<p>
So, the docbuild reviewer patch is not needed.

It could be that we need some work here. The first patch does not apply when we start with sage-4.8.alpha0. Namely, in sage/libs/singular/function.pyx, it expects the line
</p>
<pre class="wiki"> ring2 = None
</pre><p>
but this line has been removed. I don't know in which ticket that has happened. By consequence, a rather complicated chunk of the patch does not apply.
</p>
<p>
What shall we do? In order to avoid premature work, it would be an option to wait until finally all the dependencies got a positive review.
