Topic: Module refactor


view this post on Zulip Kenny Lau (Jan 08 2019 at 14:29):

I have refactored modules in order to make it possible for a module to be based on two rings. However, there is a small part in analysis/normed_space written by @Patrick Massot and @Johannes Hölzl which I do not know how to fix. I would be grateful if they could kindly offer their assistance.

I am rebasing it to the current mathlib; I would appreciate it if we could pause merging module-related stuff for a while (that would include my recent #625)

@Mario Carneiro do you think this is a good time?

sure, what's the status?

I'm sorry I didn't find the right time to think about this thread. @Kenny Lau did you manage to fix your normed space issue?

yes

@Mario Carneiro pi_instance fails for smul because pi_instance tries to apply has_scalar.smul but it fails because the instance cannot be synthesized

  • The first parameters of has_scalar, semimodule, module, and vector_space are no longer out_params. The implication is that the base ring will have to be inferred either from being provided explicitly or from context.
  • The base ring of linear maps are now specified via β →ₗ[α] γ, alongside the original notation β →ₗ γ. A similar notation has been introduced for tensor products.
  • The base ring in some definitions/theorems are made explicit.

do you guys have any suggestions / objections?

In real life one often sees phrases like "RR-linear maps from MM to NN" so I'm very happy. I live in a world where one often can consider both RR-linear and SS-linear maps between two modules.

I hope I didn't start a one-month module hiatus
