AsAlgebra( D )
AsAlgebra( F, D )
Let D be a domain.
AsAlgebra returns an algebra A over the field F
such that the set of elements of D is the same as the set of elements of
A if this is possible.
If D is an algebra the argument F may be omitted, the coefficients
field of D is taken as coefficients field of F in this case.
If D is a list of algebra elements these elements must form a algebra. Otherwise an error is signalled.
gap> a:= [ [ 1, 0 ], [ 0, 0 ] ] * Z(2);; gap> AsAlgebra( GF(2), [ a, 0*a ] ); Algebra( GF(2), [ [ [ Z(2)^0, 0*Z(2) ], [ 0*Z(2), 0*Z(2) ] ] ] )
Note that this function returns a parent algebra or a subalgebra of a
parent algebra depending on D. In order to convert a subalgebra
into a parent algebra you must use
