Description (last modified by )
The new aim of this ticket is to add an interface to the letterplace component of Singular, that actually goes beyond what Singular offers.
The patch provides
 A new implementation of free algebras with fast arithmetic, but restricted to weighted homogeneous elements, with positive integral degree weights.
 Degreewise Gröbner basis computation for twosided weighted homogeneous ideals of free algebras. If a finite complete Gröbner basis exists, it can be computed.
 Normal form computation with respect to such ideals.
 Quotient rings of such ideals
(Note that the original purpose was merely to compute Groebner bases up to a degree bound of twosided ideals of free algebras, but without normal form computation etc.)
Examples are below, in the comments.

I think we used to allow calling libsingular option objects earlier, however load() replaces it.

Actually, this doesn't make sense to me:
bck = int(libsingular_options) #letter place needs these options libsingular_options['redTail'] = True libsingular_options['redSB'] = True libsingular_options(bck)
First bck is stored and then options are changed. So far fine. However, then bck is loaded and thus overwrites the options just set.

Do I understand correctly that in this ticket it is not attempted to replace FreeAlgebra
by a more efficient implementation based on Singular's Letterplace Algebra? This ticket is only about wrapping free Groebner bases, but not about wrapping the basic arithmetic?
What Sage currently does in free algebras is generic and slow. As pointed out on sagedevel, bot Singular and Gap are faster in basic arithmetic than the current implementation in Sage.
But this should be on a different ticket, right?

As I understand, this makes the Singular's letterplace functionality accessible to Sage (in addition to the Plural functionality of #4539).
comment:15 followup: 16 Changed 12 years ago by
This ticket is only about exposing the Groebner basis computation. We didn't think arithmetic was usable since
 there is a degree bound, and
 it is a hack in Singular.
If you think the arithmetic should be wrapped as well, that should be on a different ticket. I don't know how much the Plural wrapper (#4539) will help with that.

What is meant by "Letterplace functionality"? Is it "simply" computing Gröbner basis with degree bound in free associative algebras?
Something that irritates me (and I already asked in the Singular forum) is that I could not find a way to apply such Groebner basis, e.g., in order to compute a normal form of an element of the free associative algebra w.r.t. this Gröbner basis. Also I tend to call basic arithmetic a funtionality.

OK. If I find the time, I'll finish the wrappers that I hacked together yesterday. The new ticket will then provide two alternative implementations of free (associative) algebras. One will be based on Gap, the other on Letterplace. The latter will be a hack as well: While doing arithmetic, the degree bound will be dynamically adapted. Currently I use Expect interfaces, but I guess using the Plural wrapper will improve things further.

comment:19 Changed 12 years ago by
FYI: As I mentioned in an earlier post, just having a twosided Gröbner basis is not enough for my envisioned applications. I also need a competitive arithmetic for free associative algebras, normal form computation, and, if possible, ideals in noncommutative rings, and ring quotients.
So, I implemented something from scratch, not based on the previous patches. I already got an implementation of free associative algebras based on letterplace (with a dynamic degree bound). For example, computing (x+y)**20
is 84 times faster than with the old implementation of free algebras.
I also have a base class for left, right and twosided ideals: If R is any ring and L a list of elements, then R*L is a left ideal, L*R a right ideal, and R*L*R a twosided ideal.
Using freegb for the computation of a twosided Gröbner basis will be straight forward. In addition, Grischa Studzinski and Viktor Levandoskyy provided me with some code for computing normal forms in free algebras, that is supposed to be in a future Singular release. My plan is to backport it.
And then there's documentation to write...

Summary:  basic interface to letterplace from singular → Full interface to letterplace from singular 

I have attached a new patch that replaces all previous patches and provides a lot more functionality.
Since I learned much from the previous patches, I hesitate to remove Michael and Burcin from the author list. But perhaps you like to be referee? Then you should move your name into the reviewer field.
Technical Remarks
singular_function
is very useful! However, it was impossible to simply call the freegb.lib
library functions of Singular, since they rely on ring attributes  but ring attributes have not been wrapped in libSingular
.
Moreover, it is not a good idea to call the makeLetterplaceRing
function from Singular and then transform the resulting RingWrap
into a polynomial ring. It is possible  but the result can not be pickled, since its variable names look like x(1),y(1),x(2),y(2)
and are thus no valid identifiers.
But it is no problem to create another ring with more sober variable names, and apply the letterplace functions to it. One just needs to work around the attribute tests that these functions do. In fact, these functions do only one thing after the checking, namely a system call. So, I simply did this system calls as well.
In the current release, Singular does provide the Gröbner basis computations in free algebras, but it does not provide normal form computations. Grischa Studzinski has send me some code that is supposed to become part of freegb.lib
 again, I can not call it directly, but it was fairly straight forward to implement along the lines of Grischa's code.
New Features
Free Algebra constructor as UniqueFactory
Up to now, the FreeAlgebra
constructor was based on an incomplete way of caching: When you pickle and unpickle a free algebra, you would not get the same object.
# old behaviour sage: F.<a,b,c> = FreeAlgebra(QQ,3) sage: loads(dumps(F)) is F False
This is now resolved. Moreover, it is not needed to explicitly provide the number of generators, when it is obvious from the list of names:
sage: F.<x,y,z> = FreeAlgebra(QQ) sage: loads(dumps(F)) is F True
I did one change that may be subject to criticism, and I wouldn't oppose to revert it. A free algebra in one generator is a polynomial ring. So, I return a polynomial ring:
sage: FreeAlgebra(QQ,'x') Univariate Polynomial Ring in x over Rational Field
The constructor can now also be asked for a different implementation, as in all examples below.
Free Algebra via Letterplace
I provide a new implementation of free algebras. It can be constructed as follows:
sage: F.<x,y,z> = FreeAlgebra(QQ, implementation='letterplace') sage: F Free Associative Unital Algebra on 3 generators ('x', 'y', 'z') over Rational Field
Due to some shortcomings of Singular's letterplace implementation, unfortunately we need to restrict to homogeneous elements:
sage: (x+2*y)^2 x*x + 2*x*y + 2*y*x + 4*y*y sage: x+0 x Traceback (most recent call last): ... ArithmeticError: Can only add elements of the same degree
This is why the new implementation can not yet become the default.
However, the arithmetic in the new implementation is much faster than the old:
sage: F.<x,y,z> = FreeAlgebra(QQ, implementation='letterplace') sage: F_old.<a,b,c> = FreeAlgebra(QQ) sage: timeit('t=(x+y)^15') 5 loops, best of 3: 27.7 ms per loop sage: timeit('t=(a+b)^15') sage: %time t=(a+b)^15 CPU times: user 4.51 s, sys: 0.09 s, total: 4.60 s Wall time: 6.46 s sage: 4510/27.7 162.815884476534 sage: timeit('t=(x+y)^15') 25 loops, best of 3: 19.7 ms per loop sage: %time t=(a+b)^15 CPU times: user 2.70 s, sys: 0.02 s, total: 2.72 s Wall time: 2.73 s sage: 2700/19.7 137.055837563452
One and Twosided Ideals of Noncommutative Rings
I implemented it in a fairly general way, ideals can be created for any ring:
sage: A = SteenrodAlgebra(2) sage: IL = A*[A.1+A.2,A.1^2]; IL Left Ideal (Sq(2) + Sq(4), Sq(1,1)) of mod 2 Steenrod algebra sage: IR = [A.1+A.2,A.1^2]*A; IR Right Ideal (Sq(2) + Sq(4), Sq(1,1)) of mod 2 Steenrod algebra sage: IT = A*[A.1+A.2,A.1^2]*A; IT Twosided Ideal (Sq(2) + Sq(4), Sq(1,1)) of mod 2 Steenrod algebra
Note some nastyness: The parent of an ideal still is the "monoid of ideals of a ring". But we actually have no multiplication in the noncommutative setting:
sage: IL*IR Traceback (most recent call last): ... NotImplementedError: Can not multiply noncommutative ideals.
Of course, in general, we have no way to solve the ideal containment problem. But in free algebras, we have letterplace:
sage: I.groebner_basis(degbound=3) Twosided Ideal (y*y*y  y*y*z + y*z*y  y*z*z, y*y*x + y*y*z + y*z*x + y*z*z, x*y + y*z, x*x  y*x  y*y  y*z) of Free Associative Unital Algebra on 3 generators ('x', 'y', 'z') over Rational Field sage: (x*y*z*y*x).normal_form(I) y*z*z*y*z + y*z*z*z*x + y*z*z*z*z sage: x*y*z*y*x  (x*y*z*y*x).normal_form(I) in I True sage: x*I.0I.1*y+I.0*y in I True sage: 1 in I False
Quotient Rings
Previously, quotient rings have only been available for rings that inherit from the base class of commutative rings. My patch makes them available for all rings, and actually it should work to some extent even for objects that belong to the category Rings()
but do not inherit from sage.rings.ring.Ring
.
The requirement is that we mod by an ideal I
that is twosided and that has a method I.reduce(x)
that returns a normal form of an element x
with respect to I
. That requirement holds for ideals of polynomial rings, and also for homogeneous ideals of free associative algebras. In particular:
sage: F.<x,y,z> = FreeAlgebra(QQ, implementation='letterplace') sage: I = F*[x*y+y*z,x^2+x*yy*xy^2]*F sage: Q.<a,b,c> = F.quo(I); Q Quotient of Free Associative Unital Algebra on 3 generators ('x', 'y', 'z') over Rational Field by the ideal (x*y + y*z, x*x + x*y  y*x  y*y) sage: a*b b*c sage: a^3 b*c*a  b*c*b  b*c*c sage: J = Q*[a^3b^3]*Q sage: R.<i,j,k> = Q.quo(J); R Quotient of Free Associative Unital Algebra on 3 generators ('x', 'y', 'z') over Rational Field by the ideal (y*y*z  y*z*x  2*y*z*z, x*y + y*z, x*x + x*y  y*x  y*y) sage: i^3 j*k*i  j*k*j  j*k*k sage: j^3 j*k*i  j*k*j  j*k*k
One can also test if the quotient is commutative:
sage: Q.is_commutative() False sage: J = F*[x*yy*x,x*zz*x,y*zz*y,x^3y^3]*F sage: R = F.quo(J) sage: R.is_commutative() True
Miscellaneous
I inserted the documentation of the new modules into the reference manual  I think it looks nice, but I guess a referee should double check.
Doc tests pass for me. Thus: Ready for review!!

I forgot one technical detail:
Not all rings inherit from the base class of rings. Examples are matrix algebras. In order to support noncommutative ideals for such rings, I provide the relevant methods as ParentMethods
in the category of Rings()
. Perhaps this duplication of code is considered a code smell.
At least, it enables the following:
sage: MS = MatrixSpace(QQ,2,2) sage: MS*[MS.1,2] Left Ideal ( [0 1] [0 0], [2 0] [0 2] ) of Full MatrixSpace of 2 by 2 dense matrices over Rational Field

Currently, the Letterplace Gröbner bases can only be computed if the ring of coefficients is a field. I don't know whether this condition can be lifted and whether the Singular team is working on it.
That restriction was mentioned in the doc, but not very clearly, and the error message was obscure (namely, it came from the failing call to a Singular system function). There is now additional documentation of that restriction, and the error message is nicer.

This patch provides an interface to Singular, which gives a faster implementation of free algebras and adds new features such as for example quotients of free algebras (for terms of homogeneous degree). I have tested the quotient algebra features extensively and they seem to work great!
I do not feel qualified to do a technical review, but I am happy to give a positive review for the new features added.

Thank you! There is at least one point that should probably be raised on sagealgebra: Is it acceptable that (with my patch) the FreeAlgebra

Mathematically it is correct, but I wonder if that is acceptable in a CAS.

Reviewers:  split the ticket 
Work issues:  → Unigenerated free algebra vs. univariate polynomial ring 
I managed to split my patch. The part concerning "basic implementation of ideals in noncommutative rings" is now at #11068. The new patch is based on top of that.
TODO
Let the FreeAlgebra
constructor always return a free algebra, not a polynomial ring.
New Feature
In addition to what was described in previous comments, my letterplace wrapper can compute complete twosided Gröbnerbases by an adaptive algorithm. The idea is simple: If the Gröbner basis is known out to degree 2*d1
, but the highest degree of its generators is d
, then the Gröbner basis is complete.
Example:
sage: F.<x,y,z> = FreeAlgebra(QQ, implementation='letterplace') sage: I = F*[x*yy*x,x*zz*x,y*zz*y,x^2*yz^3,x*y^2+z*x^2]*F sage: I.groebner_basis(Infinity) Twosided Ideal (z*z*z*y*y + z*z*z*z*x, z*x*x*x + z*z*z*y, y*z  z*y, y*y*x + z*x*x, y*x*x  z*z*z, x*z  z*x, x*y  y*x) of Free Associative Unital Algebra on 3 generators ('x', 'y', 'z') over Rational Field
Since the commutators are contained in the ideal, we can verify that result with a commutative Gröbner basis, as follows:
sage: P.<c,b,a> = PolynomialRing(QQ,order='neglex') sage: J = P*[a^2*bc^3,a*b^2+c*a^2] sage: J.groebner_basis() [b*a^2  c^3, b^2*a + c*a^2, c*a^3 + c^3*b, c^3*b^2 + c^4*a]
So, that's a good consistency test.

Work issues:  Unigenerated free algebra vs. univariate polynomial ring → Unigenerated free algebra vs. univariate polynomial ring; refactoring of ncideals 

I don't know why, but even though mercurial claims that it tracks sage/algebras/letterplace/__init__.py
, it kept forgetting to include it into the patch. So, I decided to fill __init__.py
with some comment. Now it should work.
Of course, you may play with the patch, but it still needs work. First of all, there is the issue that the free algebra constructor should never return a polynomial ring (in the univariate case). And then, my plan is to refactor things, such that there will also be dependencies with #9138 and #9944.

I updated the patch.
Apply trac7797full_letterplace_wrapper_rel11068.patch
Depends on #11068
Actually I am not sure about all dependencies. #11068 should be enough on top of sage4.7.alpha5. However, here is a full account of the patches that I had applied to sage4.7.alpha5 before creating the patch here: #10296, #9944, #9138, #9976, #11115, #11068.
In particular, I think the refactoring of rings, quotient rings and noncommutative ideals is successfully solved in #9138 and #11068. Concerning unigenerated free algebras, it seems better to stay in the world of free algebras, rather than returning a polynomial ring. So, we have
sage: F.<x> = FreeAlgebra(QQ) sage: F Free Algebra on 1 generators (x,) over Rational Field sage: F.is_commutative() True sage: F.<x> = FreeAlgebra(QQ, implementation='letterplace') sage: F Free Associative Unital Algebra on 1 generators (x,) over Rational Field sage: F.is_commutative() True
In principle, it could be reviewed now. But the patch chain in front of it is rather large, and not everything has a positive review, yet.
My next plan: Allow positive integer degree weights on the generators, extending the scope of the letterplace wrapper from homogeneous to weighted homogeneous elements, and allow degreewise computation of weighted homogeneous Gröbner bases. Note that this goes beyond what is currently implemented in Singular, but it should work using a little hack (slack variables).

Actually, on second thought, it belongs there: I am talking about the two singular_function instances included in the module. The main problem was that singular_function includes the documentation provided by Singular without taking care of formatting  resulting in numerous errors (e.g., back ticks are misinterpreted as the beginning of Latex expressions, the indentation is handled differently, and so on).
In #11268, I suggest to take care if it by turning the Singular documentation into a verbose code block. With that change, the documentation looks a lot better. I therefore make it a new dependency.

Meanwhile I implemented two other features:
Uniqueness of parents

I rewrote the FreeAlgebra

The letterplace implementation in Singular is restricted to homogeneous ideals, and each generator can only have degree 1. With a little hack, I introduced positive integral degree weights for generators, so that we can now do:

This and the possibility to compute a complete Gröbner basis (provided a finite complete Gröbner basis exists) go beyond what is currently in Singular.
The underlying idea of the degree weights is: Introduce a homogenizing variable. By default, it is called x
, but a different name is chosen if there is a name conflict. Here, it is renamed to x_
. And then, we represent a generator z
of degree d
internally as z*x_^(d1)
(of course with noncommutative multiplication).
Hence, the underlying truncated letterplace ring becomes a bit bigger, and in the bigger ring all generators are of degree one. Of course, the additional variable is omitted in the string representation. We have for example
sage: z z sage: z.degree() 3 sage: z.letterplace_polynomial() z*x__1*x__2
As much as I know, with that approach, Gröbner bases are correctly computed: If in all polynomials each occurrence of z
is followed by x_^(d1)
then all Spolynomials and reductions (computed in the ring with additional generator x_
and with all generators in degree 1) will have the same property.
I know this is a hack, but I guess it may be useful. It certainly will be usefull for my current project, because I need degree weights.

In my application, I also need conversion from graded subalgebras. Hence, I implemented it in the new patch.
To be precise: If we have free graded algebras A and B in letterplace implementation, then there is a coercion from A to B if and only if there is a coercion from the base ring of A to the base ring of B, and the set of generator names of A is a subset of the generator names of B, and the degrees of equally named generators of A and B are equal.
The coercion is always name and degree preserving.
Example:
sage: F.<t,y,z> = FreeAlgebra(ZZ, implementation='letterplace', degrees=[4,2,3]) sage: G = FreeAlgebra(GF(5), implementation='letterplace', names=['x','y','z','t'], degrees=[1,2,3,4]) sage: t*G.0 # indirect doctest t*x sage: (t*G.0 + G.1*G.2)*y y*z*y + t*x*y

Also, I added #13237 (Upgrade to Singular315) as dependency just in case it matters. My tests on Solaris SPARC were done with the new Singular from #13237.

Hans Schönemann has tested it. He used Singular315, or in more detail:
Singular for SunOS5 version 315 (3150) Aug 27 2012 19:23:52 with factory(@(#) factoryVersion = 3.1.5),libfac(3.1.5,July 2012), GMP(4.2),NTL(5.5.2),64bit,static readline,Plural,DBM, dynamic modules,dynamic p_Procs,OM_CHECK=0,OM_TRACK=0,random=1346170574 CC= gcc m64 mptr64 mcpu=ultrasparc3 O2 w fomitframepointer pipe DNDEBUG DOM_NDEBUG DSunOS_5 DHAVE_CONFIG_H, CXX= g++ m64 mptr64 mcpu=ultrasparc3 O2 w fomitframepointer I.. I/users/cip/alggeom/hannes/galois64 pipe DNDEBUG DOM_NDEBUG DSunOS_5 DHAVE_CONFIG_H (3.3.2)
The example worked fine, which indicates that it is a problem with my wrapper. If you want to test it for yourself:
LIB "freegb.lib"; ring r = 0,(x,y,z),dp; int d =4; // degree bound def R = makeLetterplaceRing(d); setring R; ideal I = x(1)*y(2) + y(1)*z(2), x(1)*x(2) + x(1)*y(2)  y(1)*x(2)  y(1)*y(2); option(redSB); option(redTail); ideal J = letplaceGBasis(I); J;
The expected result is
==> J[1]=x(1)*y(2)+y(1)*z(2) ==> J[2]=x(1)*x(2)y(1)*x(2)y(1)*y(2)y(1)*z(2) ==> J[3]=y(1)*y(2)*y(3)y(1)*y(2)*z(3)+y(1)*z(2)*y(3)y(1)*z(2)*z(3) ==> J[4]=y(1)*y(2)*x(3)+y(1)*y(2)*z(3)+y(1)*z(2)*x(3)+y(1)*z(2)*z(3) ==> J[5]=y(1)*z(2)*y(3)*y(4)y(1)*z(2)*y(3)*z(4)+y(1)*z(2)*z(3)*y(4)y(1)*z(2\ )*z(3)*z(4) ==> J[6]=y(1)*z(2)*y(3)*x(4)+y(1)*z(2)*y(3)*z(4)+y(1)*z(2)*z(3)*x(4)+y(1)*z(2\ )*z(3)*z(4) ==> J[7]=y(1)*y(2)*z(3)*y(4)y(1)*y(2)*z(3)*z(4)+y(1)*z(2)*z(3)*y(4)y(1)*z(2\ )*z(3)*z(4) ==> J[8]=y(1)*y(2)*z(3)*x(4)+y(1)*y(2)*z(3)*z(4)+y(1)*z(2)*z(3)*x(4)+y(1)*z(2\ )*z(3)*z(4)
I will see whether letplaceGBasis
does anything new  perhaps I can learn from it?

No, the essential part is the same. Namely:
ideal J = system("freegb",I,uptodeg,lV);
If I am not mistaken, it is the analogue of this command that fails in my code.
The question that I'd like to be answered is: Are calls to Singular's "system" function possible in Sage on Solaris SPARC? Could you please test the following in Sage on Solaris SPARC?
sage: from sage.libs.singular.function import singular_function sage: sing_system = singular_function("system") sage: R.<x,y> = QQ[] sage: sing_system("uname", ring=R) 'x86_64Linux' # ok, the answer will be different on Solaris SPARC...

Thank you, Jeroen!
So, the bug is not in my wrapper, but in singular_function. And that error looks rather strange. I'll ask Hans, tomorrow.
Martin, do you have an idea where that error might come from?
comment:85 followup: 86 Changed 10 years ago by
Here is the code for system("uname")
(to be found in Singular/extra.cc):
/*==================== uname ==================================*/ if(strcmp(sys_cmd,"uname")==0) { res>rtyp=STRING_CMD; res>data = omStrDup(S_UNAME); return FALSE; }
About // ** s_internalDelete: cannot delete type sqrfree(493)
: According to Hans, 493 is the token for the command sqrfree
, which is not a type but a command. Therefore deleting an object with 493's type is impossible. He doesn't understand how that happens here.
res>data
is a C string, and STRING_CMD
is the token 495, which stands for the type of a string (char *
). Could Solares SPARC mistake 495 for 493??

There probably an outdated Singular/tok.h around. Tokens like INTMOD_CMD were added recently, so this would explain the shift in the enum.

Okay, with a build from scratch:

That test is about an internally used method (note the underscores), and the output depends on a polynomial ring that is used to simulate computations in free associative algebras out to a certain degree. As you can see, the ideal we expect and the ideal we got are alike  only the polynomial rings differ.
The point is that the underlying polynomial ring can change during computations, and the free associative algebras are unique parents. Hence, if tests are executed in different order then it may very well be that the polynomial ring used behind the scenes is different. Only the final result (i.e., interpreted in the free associative algebra) is unique.
I suggest to modify that test (and perhaps others as well) as follows:
> sage: G = F._reductor_(I.gens(),3); G > Expected: > Ideal (x*y_1 + y*z_1, x_1*y_2 + y_1*z_2, x*x_1 + x*y_1  y*x_1  y*y_1, x_1*x_2 + x_1*y_2  y_1*x_2  y_1*y_2) of Multivariate Polynomial Ring in x, y, z, x_1, y_1, z_1, x_2, y_2, z_2... over Rational Field
The variables before the ...
are guaranteed to occur, and we don't know (and don't care) whether more variables appear behind the scenes.
Would you accept that solution?

I guess the plan was to add a doc test, then I changed my mind and deleted the doctest incompletely. I guess that line can be removed (by a reviewer patch?).

I think we have already discussed that the order of doctests may influence the size of the polynomial ring used to represent the letterplace elements.
So, the fix should be to have Multivariate Polynomial Ring in x, y, z, x_1, y_1, z_1, x_2, y_2, z_2... over Rational Field
. I'll do so (hopefully) soonish.
