Description (last modified by )
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.
The patches that resulted from this work are attached.
Newest functionality:
- non-commutative rings/polynomials/ideals are fully featured classes now (no deriving from commutative ones)!
- coercion from basering/Integer types (still needs tests)
- flag to check degeneracy conditions on init
- relations for non-commutative rings
- 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
- RingWrap? and TermOrder? were extended
- quick and dirty conversion of RingWrap? to Sage rings (needs some care as the resulting rings may not be unique and therefore may confuse coercion)
- quotient of a non-commutative ring by a two-sided Groebner basis
- shortcut to create graded commutative algebras: SCA
Possible topics that need work are:
- put the files in sage/algebra/ ???
- make sure element does not export functions it doesn't support (e.g. gcd)
- predefined structures from the library

It was indeed careless rebasing. attachment:plural-wrapper-2010-10-01.patch (patch with same name as before, to hide my shame :) ) seems to work.
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.
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!

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:
(A) Take the side decision at the time the ideal is created:
sage: I = W.ideal([...], side=...)
(to be documented in W.ideal?
).
With that, I
would be well defined as an ideal; otherwise it is
more a
collection of polynomials and the name is misleading.
(B) About computing the Grobner basis:
sage: I.groebner_basis()
or:
sage: I.std()
would compute the groebner basis, store it for later calculations, and return it as a list of polynomials rather than a new ideal.
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.

Nicolas

Currently, if R is a commutative ring and L is a list of elements of R, one may use the shorthand notation I = R*L

to create an ideal. It seems natural to me to extend this to the non-commutative case: R*L
for left ideal, L*R
for right ideal, and R*L*R
for two-sided ideal.
How to implement it? Well, on could have a base class for ideals over non-commutative rings (let's call it NCIdeal
), and derive from it NCIdeal_left
, NCIdeal_right
, NCIdeal_twodsided
.
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.
And then, NCIdeal_twodsided.groebner_basis()
would yield a two-sided Gröbner basis, while NCIdeal_left/right.groebner_basis()
would only yield a one-sided Gröbner basis, of course unless a two-sided Gröbner basis is requested by using an optional argument.

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!
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:
- a good place for advertising (it appears in R.<tab>), documenting, testing the feature and its shorthand
- an easy way for subclasses of (the class of) R to override this method without having to worry about overloading/coercion/...

Apply plural-wrapper-2010-10-01.patch

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 #7797 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.
However, not all is good. Here is one error that I just found:

So, there remains work to do!
comment:38 Changed 10 years ago by
- Status changed from needs_work to needs_review
- Work issues Implement is_integral_domain and probably other small stuff deleted
The reason of the error was that FreeModule
tries (among other things) the method is_integral_domain()
. By default, it raises a NotImplementedError
, and this is the error we get above.
Proposed solution: Catch that NotImplementedError
and do as if is_integral_domain()
had returned False
.
I don't know if there will be further problems, but I'll put it back to "needs review".

It would be great to have this in Sage!
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.
Second, the change
- block_name, block_length, _ = re.split(length_pattern,block) + block_name, block_length, _ = re.split(pattern, block.strip())
in term_order.py is problematic, because "pattern" is not defined anywhere. Replacing it by "length_pattern" seems to work.
Third, in multipolynomial_ideal.py, _groebner_basis_libsingular
is being called with keywords "deg_bound" and "mult_bound", but it doesn't accept those keywords as valid arguments. Should we add *args, **kwds
to the argument list? Or should those keywords be dealt with explicitly? I tried adding generic *args
and **kwds
, but doctesting on that file segfaults.
When I doctest the whole Sage library after making these changes, I get the following failures:
The following tests failed: sage -t -long -force_lib devel/sage/sage/rings/polynomial/multi_polynomial_ideal.py # Killed/crashed sage -t -long -force_lib devel/sage/sage/rings/polynomial/multi_polynomial_libsingular.pyx # 1 doctests failed sage -t -long -force_lib devel/sage/sage/libs/singular/polynomial.pyx # 1 doctests failed sage -t -long -force_lib devel/sage/sage/rings/polynomial/plural.pyx # 6 doctests failed

I've rebased the patch to Sage 4.7. I'm not sure it's worth cluttering up this ticket with more patches, especially ones this big, so I've posted it to http://sage.math.washington.edu/home/palmieri/misc/trac_4539_libplural-rebased.patch. This patch also fixes a few docstrings, and it makes the changes that I described above, although I'm not sure they're the right thing to do.

At sage days 34, we try to rebase the old patch. Burcin and I agree that we should rebase it with respect to #7797 (which, among other things, modernises coercion for free algebras). It also means that we can use one- and two-sided ideals in non-commutative rings, by #11068.
Some hunks of the latest patch fail due to other tickets that meanwhile are merged, such as #11316.
It seems to me that, out of the 5 hunks that fail, only 2 are non-trivial to fix.

We were just dubling the work, it seems. I had rebased my old patch and was running tests (don't know the outcome).
But is your patch relative to #11068 (and perhaps to #7797 as well)? #11068 already has a positive review, and since it adds one- and twosided ideals of non-commutative rings, it seems like a natural dependency for a plural wrapper.

comment:48 Changed 9 years ago by
I have attached my experimental rebasement (relative to #7797 on top of sage-4.7.2.alpha3), but not all is good.
There are quite a lot of doctest failures, including some very wrong arithmetical results in plural.pyx.
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 no error message (but there is a ZeroDivisionError
, at least).
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.
Alexander, when you said that your broken Sage installation was to blame: Do you mean that the tests are mostly passing with your patch?
comment:49 Changed 9 years ago by
I am now testing Alexander's patch. First good news: It applies without fuzz, even when #7797 is applied. Let's see how the doc tests work!
comment:50 follow-up: ↓ 52 Changed 9 years ago by
I started with "manually" testing against three of the doc test errors that I got with my patch. Two of them fail with Alexander's patch as well:
sage: P.<x,y,z> = QQ[] sage: x/0 Traceback (most recent call last): ... ZeroDivisionError:
--> The old error message "rational division by zero" has gone.
sage: (x*y).is_monomial() True sage: (2*y).is_monomial() False
--> That's better than my patch, where these return 1 and 0.
sage: (x+y^2^30)^10 x^10
--> That should result in an overflow error.
I didn't analyse the segmentation faults.

Let P = QQ[x,y,z]
. 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 ZeroDivisionError
in
sage.libs.singular.polynomial.singular_polynomial_div_coeff.
Before, it used to invert 0 as a rational number, resulting in a ZeroDivisionError
with some error message.
Burcin and I agree that it is ok to have the ZeroDivisionError
without a message: What else could it state but "don't divide by zero"?
So, it is not an issue.
sage: (x*y).is_monomial() True sage: (2*y).is_monomial() False
I don't know why it has occured in the first place, but now it seems alright, even with my patch.
sage: (x+y^2^30)^10 x^10--> That should result in an overflow error.
It turns out that one gets the same 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.
I didn't analyse the segmentation faults.
That will be next...

It seems that I was able to get the missing overflow error in #11856, which I added as a dependency. I had to update my patch (and Alexander will need to update his as well), because the function overflow_check is now expecting two arguments (a long and a ring), not one.
Tests are still missing, of course, and I have still no idea about the segfault.

I found out that the intended lmul implementation, namely using rmul and reverting left and right hand side, is an illegal for some right hand side objects. Up to now, this is only verified for schemes/elliptic_curves/ell_curve_isogeny.py More extensive tests follow.

Patch for using trac4539_libplural-2011-09-27-untested.patch together with #11856 (not needed for trac4539_libplural_todo.patch)
comment:59 Changed 9 years ago by
Concerning trac4539_monomial_quotient.patch: 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 does 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.
Note that trac4539_kwds.patch is not needed for my patch - I already have *args in it.
We have already briefly discussed why I think that trac4539_lmul.patch 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.
Can you please provide an example that was segfaulting without the lmul-patch?
comment:60 Changed 9 years ago by
At least, when I use trac4539_libplural_todo.patch plus trac4539_lmul.patch on top of sage-4.7.3.alpha3-prerelease, then all tests in sage/rings/polynomial pass (except those that fail in the unpatched version as well).
Since I believe that the monomial quotient patch does not do the right thing, I'd prefer to work on top of trac4539_libplural_todo.patch and trac4539_lmul.patch, and concentrate on getting the lmul business right.
comment:61 Changed 9 years ago by
I can already confirm that ther is 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.
comment:62 Changed 9 years ago by
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.
Alexander, how did you found that a change in lmul could fix it?
comment:63 Changed 9 years ago by
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).
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:

But the same doctest executed as part of the doctest suite has a
std in (0),(x,y),(dp(2),C) [4294967295:2]3ss4s6 (S:2)-- product criterion:1 chain criterion:0
printed after (!!) the result.
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.
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.

In trac4539_libplural.patch, I added an author list. But is it exhaustive?

I am writing a reviewer patch, since several doc strings needs reformatting.
Question:
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?

- What does "cheating about assumptions" mean (what are the assumptions)?
- What exactly does not work in coercion (perhaps I can fix it?)?

- Work issues changed from rebase wrt #11068; doc string formatting to Pickling. Quotients. Uniqueness.
Here's a report on features that I implemented today (not posted yet), missing features, and I also have some questions for you:
Sidedness of ideals
By #11068, 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:
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
I think that's a good solution.
Cache
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.
Question: Should g-algebras be unique parents? If you agree that they should be, then I can try to implement it.
Category
A proper initialisation of non-commutative polynomial rings in the category of algebras was missing and is now added:
sage: H._is_category_initialized() True sage: H.category() Category of algebras over Rational Field
Pickling
The test suite does not pass. Among other things, pickling of g-algebras has simply been forgotten. This certainly must be fixed:
sage: dumps(H) --------------------------------------------------------------------------- TypeError Traceback (most recent call last) ... TypeError: expected string or Unicode object, NoneType found
It could be that, by using a UniqueFactory
or UniqueRepresentation
, the pickling problem automatically vanishes. Otherwise, a __reduce__
method must be implemented.
Generator names for g-algebras
It should be possible to choose names in the g_algebra()
method.
Quotients
There is a custom quotient()
method for g-algebras (not using #11068). 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:
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
Question: Did I misinterprete it? Hence, is there a way to make Q show that Q.2^2
is equal to one?
Otherwise, the custom quotient()
should be dropped. #11068 provides the framework for nc-quotient rings; one just needs to add a I.reduce(p)
method to our ideals (which is missing anyway).
Doc strings
I fixed various wrong doc string formats. Of course, after the changes mentioned above, some doc tests need to be modified.
comment:75 Changed 9 years ago by
New patch posted! It does what I have announced above. I suggest that the next step should be to provide pickling, possibly by using UniqueRepresentation
.
comment:76 Changed 9 years ago by
- Description modified (diff)
The patch that I have just attached provides uniqueness of the parent (using a UniqueFactory
) and pickling for nc rings and polynomials.
In short:
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()
Doc tests still need to be updated, though. I also think that normal form computation should be easy to implement.

comment:77 Changed 9 years ago by
- Work issues changed from Pickling. Quotients. Uniqueness. to Quotients and normal forms
comment:78 Changed 9 years ago by
- Description modified (diff)
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.
Note that the quotients use the general framework from #11068. They should simply be g-algebras as well. But I suggest that this will be done on a different ticket.
With the new patch, one can do:
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
Here, we see that the relation that we just found in the quotient is actually a consequence of the given relations:
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}
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.
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...

comment:79 Changed 9 years ago by
- Work issues changed from Quotients and normal forms to doc tests
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...
comment:80 Changed 9 years ago by
Sorry, I couldn't resist to add one more feature: Ideal containment, which is a direct application of normal form computation.
With the new version of the third patch, we have:
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() 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.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}
Apparently, x*y^{2-y*z should be in the two-sided, but not in the left ideal. And that is indeed what we get:
}
sage: x*y^2-y*z in JL False sage: x*y^2-y*z in JT True
Docs are still to fix. And I promise to focus on it - no new features...

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

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.
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?
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 new_NRing

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 SCA
in the patch does not do the right thing).
I believe that there should be a sub-class of NCPolynomialRing_plural
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 #11878.

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

One doctest failed on OSX 10.5 PPC. This is fixed in the attached patch. Since we postponed the quotient issue, I think I can give a positive review for Simon's work as well as for Michael's, Burcin's and Oleksandr's part , which I reviewed on SD24.
@Simon: If you accept my part we would have a positive review now.

It looks like this error already occurs #11856 - can you verify whether the error occurs on 32-bit with #11856? Then it might be better to post your patch there.
@Simon: If you accept my part we would have a positive review now.
The "big" patch merely combines work of y'all, and I certainly give the stuff there a positive review. However, the question on #11856 should first be answered.

OK, then trac4539_fix_docs_32bit.patch should better be moved to #11856 - since it only concerns doctests in the obvious way, but does not change the code, I think that your patch can be a reviewer patch for #11856, thus, preserving the positive review that Martin gave (but then add your name in the "Reviewer" field of #11856).
If that's done, then I'll try the stuff from here again, and then hopefully it can be turned into a positive review.

I didn't post my rebased patches yet, since I need to fix a few doctest errors.
Actually, the first error is a clear improvement. We have the following doctest:

It's also not guaranteed that all multiplications are done from the right side. d...: UserWarning: You are constructing a free module over a noncommutative ring.

(y^2, x^2, z^2 - 1) sage: M = I.syzygy_module()
With #10903 applied, one gets 9 Syzygies:
sage: M[0] (-z^2 - 8*z - 15, 0, y^2) sage: M[1] (0, -z^2 + 8*z - 15, x^2) sage: M[2] (x^2*z^2 + 8*x^2*z + 15*x^2, -y^2*z^2 + 8*y^2*z - 15*y^2, -4*x*y*z + 2*z^2 + 2*z) sage: M[3] (x^2*y*z^2 + 9*x^2*y*z - 6*x*z^3 + 20*x^2*y - 72*x*z^2 - 282*x*z - 360*x, -y^3*z^2 + 7*y^3*z - 12*y^3, 6*y*z^2) sage: M[4] (x^3*z^2 + 7*x^3*z + 12*x^3, -x*y^2*z^2 + 9*x*y^2*z - 4*y*z^3 - 20*x*y^2 + 52*y*z^2 - 224*y*z + 320*y, -6*x*z^2) sage: M[5] (x^2*y^2*z + 4*x^2*y^2 - 8*x*y*z^2 - 48*x*y*z + 12*z^3 - 64*x*y + 108*z^2 + 312*z + 288, -y^4*z + 4*y^4, 0) sage: M[6] (2*x^3*y*z + 8*x^3*y + 9*x^2*z + 27*x^2, -2*x*y^3*z + 8*x*y^3 - 12*y^2*z^2 + 99*y^2*z - 195*y^2, -36*x*y*z + 24*z^2 + 18*z) sage: M[7] (x^4*z + 4*x^4, -x^2*y^2*z + 4*x^2*y^2 - 4*x*y*z^2 + 32*x*y*z - 6*z^3 - 64*x*y + 66*z^2 - 240*z + 288, 0) sage: M[8] (x^3*y^2*z + 4*x^3*y^2 + 18*x^2*y*z - 36*x*z^3 + 66*x^2*y - 432*x*z^2 - 1656*x*z - 2052*x, -x*y^4*z + 4*x*y^4 - 8*y^3*z^2 + 62*y^3*z - 114*y^3, 48*y*z^2 - 36*y*z) sage: M[9] Traceback (most recent call last): ... IndexError: matrix index out of range
However, without #10903 (and with the original patches applied), one gets what is expected in the doc tests, namely 10 Syzygies -- but two of them are identical:
sage: M[0] (-z^2 - 8*z - 15, 0, y^2) sage: M[1] (0, -z^2 + 8*z - 15, x^2) sage: M[2] (x^2*z^2 + 8*x^2*z + 15*x^2, -y^2*z^2 + 8*y^2*z - 15*y^2, -4*x*y*z + 2*z^2 + 2*z) sage: M[3] (x^2*y*z^2 + 9*x^2*y*z - 6*x*z^3 + 20*x^2*y - 72*x*z^2 - 282*x*z - 360*x, -y^3*z^2 + 7*y^3*z - 12*y^3, 6*y*z^2) sage: M[4] (x^3*z^2 + 7*x^3*z + 12*x^3, -x*y^2*z^2 + 9*x*y^2*z - 4*y*z^3 - 20*x*y^2 + 52*y*z^2 - 224*y*z + 320*y, -6*x*z^2) sage: M[5] (x^2*y^2*z + 4*x^2*y^2 - 8*x*y*z^2 - 48*x*y*z + 12*z^3 - 64*x*y + 108*z^2 + 312*z + 288, -y^4*z + 4*y^4, 0) sage: M[6] (2*x^3*y*z + 8*x^3*y + 9*x^2*z + 27*x^2, -2*x*y^3*z + 8*x*y^3 - 12*y^2*z^2 + 99*y^2*z - 195*y^2, -36*x*y*z + 24*z^2 + 18*z) sage: M[7] (2*x^3*y*z + 8*x^3*y + 9*x^2*z + 27*x^2, -2*x*y^3*z + 8*x*y^3 - 12*y^2*z^2 + 99*y^2*z - 195*y^2, -36*x*y*z + 24*z^2 + 18*z) sage: M[8] (x^4*z + 4*x^4, -x^2*y^2*z + 4*x^2*y^2 - 4*x*y*z^2 + 32*x*y*z - 6*z^3 - 64*x*y + 66*z^2 - 240*z + 288, 0) sage: M[9] (x^3*y^2*z + 4*x^3*y^2 + 18*x^2*y*z - 36*x*z^3 + 66*x^2*y - 432*x*z^2 - 1656*x*z - 2052*x, -x*y^4*z + 4*x*y^4 - 8*y^3*z^2 + 62*y^3*z - 114*y^3, 48*y*z^2 - 36*y*z) sage: M[7]==M[6] True
So, the old Singular version forgot to remove a redundant Syzygy.

Hoorray! The other doctest error was even easier to fix: It has been a new test, and I simply had a typo in it.
Because of #11339 and #10903, 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.
Could you please have a look whether we can return to the positive review?

I urgently need a break. It is unbelievable how many errors I made in the past 30 minutes.

Hi Alexander,
Note that there is a new patch at #10903 (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 #10903 (actually there are TWO new patches) the problem is fixed.
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
ring2 = None
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.
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.
