### Topic: module refactoring

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 21 2018 at 06:31):

I'm a bit late for my birthday deadline, but I have enough of the refactoring done that I'm ready to get feedback on it. See leanprover-community/module. Remarks:

• The main contributions here are the complete bundling of linear_map and submodule. In fact both of these were already present in mathlib, but making them primary makes everything go so much smoother.
• The structure of submodule and its category-theory-like interactions with linear_map are emphasized heavily. In particular, submodule is a complete lattice, map and comap are galois connections, there are tons of theorems about the map of an inf or the comap of fst and so on.
• The amount of duality here is staggering. I guess someone who is category theory minded will tell me that Mod is its own opposite category or some such thing, but it really shows in the equational theory. Even stuff like inl being dual to fst causes some nice properties, and some stuff plays even nicer than on Set like prod p q ⊔ prod p' q' = prod (p ⊔ p') (q ⊔ q').
• Injectivity and surjectivity of linear maps is expressed through ker and range (should I call it im?), and even linear_independent and basis can be expressed using properties of the lc.total function.

On the whole, I'm feeling really good about the results, and the proofs are much cleaner.

#### Johan Commelin (Sep 21 2018 at 06:33):

This is really cool! And yes, please call use im :lol:

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 21 2018 at 06:34):

The name range is of course borrowed from terminology on set. I would rather not confuse with image which is map here

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 21 2018 at 06:36):

map f p is the submodule f[p] where p is a submodule, and range f = map f \top = f[univ] which was previously called im on linear maps

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 21 2018 at 06:38):

What is the common name for the coproduct pairing function? I called it copair since pair is used for the product pairing operation

#### Kenny Lau (Sep 21 2018 at 06:42):

but it's the same...

#### Johan Commelin (Sep 21 2018 at 06:43):

I think @Scott Morrison and @Reid Barton have the most experience with such decisions

#### Johannes Hölzl (Sep 21 2018 at 08:03):

this is really nice!

#### Patrick Massot (Sep 21 2018 at 08:21):

Mario, could you explain how all this solves the trouble we had with instance loops and multiple possible base rings?

#### Kevin Buzzard (Sep 21 2018 at 10:51):

I got caught up with something else this morning but later on today, when I have Lean time, I will just merge the patch and see how Hilbert basis goes with it. Does it compile sorry-free?

#### Reid Barton (Sep 21 2018 at 10:56):

copair/pair seems as good as anything else.
Normally we just write an arrow $A \oplus B \to C$ and let the reader do the boring work of figuring out what map we are actually talking about.

#### Kenny Lau (Sep 21 2018 at 10:57):

how about product or coproduct as a bifunctor?

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 21 2018 at 16:21):

@Patrick Massot This doesn't address that issue, although it prepares the way a bit. I anticipate that this should be a comparatively simple change, but I didn't want the two refactorings to interact so I'm going to start on it as soon as this is done.

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 21 2018 at 16:22):

@Kevin Buzzard It's not yet building. I finished the main linear algebra files, but I haven't finished up the cleanup of uses outside linear algebra. (There are no sorries, it just breaks.)

#### Johannes Hölzl (Sep 21 2018 at 16:26):

@Mario Carneiro by the way: the introduction of coe rewrites broke some proofs in set_theory/ordinal and cofinality. I fixed this, but you might want to do a different fix

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 21 2018 at 16:39):

yeah, apologies for pushing stuff last night that broke things; my computer was running very slow and I was lacking feedback on whether my fixes worked

#### Johannes Hölzl (Sep 21 2018 at 16:45):

No problem. But I'm not sure if these are the intended changes. I didn't look too deep how these new simp rules are supposed to work.

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 21 2018 at 16:46):

The idea is that coe will infer transitive instances, but since simp rules are only written on single coercions they won't fire on these composite instances. So we unfold them to multiple coe arrows first

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 21 2018 at 16:47):

I don't think I realized this until lately, but lean will also infer transitive instances for coe + coe_fn and coe + coe_sort, and since the instances are different there are more simp lemmas associated to these

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 21 2018 at 16:49):

I think the breakage is because some simp LHSs were written with composite instances, which now break because simp normal form doesn't have any composite instances. The fix is to make sure simp LHSs have multiple coercion in these cases

#### Patrick Massot (Sep 21 2018 at 16:58):

Ok, I'm less confused then (about modules, I'm still 100% confused about topological groups). I couldn't understand how those changes could help with the lost ring issue

#### Chris Hughes (Sep 21 2018 at 17:05):

Is it worth bundling ideals and subgroups as well?

#### Johannes Hölzl (Sep 21 2018 at 17:12):

I think we should replace ideals by submodules, so yes we want to have them bundled. I'm not sure about subgroups. We surely want a bundled version, but maybe still an unbundled one too

#### Kevin Buzzard (Sep 21 2018 at 17:36):

Johannes -- the idea about ideals was that submodule R M makes sense for varying R and M, but ideal R = submodule R R so only one input is needed.

#### Chris Hughes (Sep 21 2018 at 17:43):

But I think you want lattice and semiring on ideals as well, so you need bundles for that.

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 21 2018 at 18:44):

I am of the opinion that subgroup and other such algebraic classes should also be bundled; almost all of the lattice structure theorems done here hold for anything that fits the structure of a universal algebra. ideal R := submodule R R can be defined as reducible so that all the theorems about submodules still apply.

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 21 2018 at 18:45):

What are some examples where you think not having is_sub* will cause problems?

#### Johan Commelin (Sep 21 2018 at 20:38):

ideal R := submodule R R can be defined as reducible so that all the theorems about submodules still apply.

@Mario Carneiro I thought you said in Orsay that you couldn't think of any reason why a definition should be reducible. Has that changed? If so, can you explain?

#### Kevin Buzzard (Sep 21 2018 at 23:40):

If I open polynomial.lean (which I need for Hilbert basis) I just get 1000 errors. I think I would be happier to give feedback by trying to write Lean code and then getting stuck or finding things easier than before and reporting back. I find it hard to theorise about changes that I may not fully understand.

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 22 2018 at 00:26):

Yeah, sorry about that. Mostly you can just open and read algebra.module and linear_algebra.basic for now. I'll let you know when it's really done (by pushing it to master, unless someone objects)

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 22 2018 at 00:27):

I just didn't want to get too far afield with a change this sweeping without some input

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 22 2018 at 00:33):

@Johan Commelin That's a fair point. There are three options here: (1) nonreducible def (2) reducible def (3) notation. In Orsay I argued that either (1) or (3) suffices in most cases where you think you want (2).

In this case, I don't think it matters too much, although (1) will require copying some instances like the complete_lattice instance, and possibly some theorems. Doing this would make the cleanest separation, allowing us to present a solid API for ideals that doesn't talk about modules half the time. (2) and (3) will entail some amount of API leakage here, moreso with (3) since it is submodule R R that will appear in all your statements.

The downsides of reducible defs (inconsistent handling in rw and simp) don't really apply when the def is a type since you don't usually do rewrites on a type, you just force it to be defeq to something else.

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 27 2018 at 23:46):

This is a change I haven't implemented, but I'm considering it and want to get some feedback. Maybe a basis should be an injective function from some type into the module, i.e. the "basis" is really the range of this function, and the function gets to pick its indexing type. The reason is because we often tend to use a basis as an index for a sum, or as the domain of the free vector space to which to express isomorphism, or as the set whose cardinality is the dimension of the space - all of these roles are better accommodated by having an algebra of indexing types (which we already have courtesy of DTT) where measuring cardinality and indexing is more natural. (Also, it allows a basis to carry computational content, which isn't super important but indicates that this might be moving in the right direction.)

#### Reid Barton (Sep 27 2018 at 23:59):

From a mathematical perspective this change is very natural. We often write things like "let {b_1, ..., b_n} be a basis of V" but usually (whether we are aware of it or not) we really mean we are working with an indexed collection b_i, i.e., a function {1, ..., n} -> V.

#### Reid Barton (Sep 28 2018 at 00:00):

It's easy to say things which are false if taken literally in the "set style". For example: {x, y} is a linearly independent set in a vector space if and only if there do not exist nonzero a, b such that ax + by = 0. Well, not if x = y!

#### Reid Barton (Sep 28 2018 at 00:01):

On the other hand there are occasionally times when you genuinely need to work with subsets because you want to use the order structure and/or know that the collection of all possible bases is small, for example when proving that every vector space has a basis

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 28 2018 at 00:01):

I think the statement about every vector space has a basis will explicitly use subsets

#### Reid Barton (Sep 28 2018 at 00:02):

I think the function approach is not really restrictive then anyways. You just say "a subset such that the inclusion is a basis".

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 28 2018 at 00:02):

i.e. every vector space has a basis where the function is the subtype coercion and the indexing set is a subtype of the vector space

#### Reid Barton (Sep 28 2018 at 00:02):

(By the way, injectivity of the function is a consequence of being a basis, not a precondition.)

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 28 2018 at 00:03):

I agree, I think under most circumstances you should be able to prove injectivity, except in trivial cases and in those cases you probably don't want to impose it additionally

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 28 2018 at 00:04):

(bases over the zero ring are weird)

Hmm... yes

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 28 2018 at 00:05):

speaking of which... unit should be a ring

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 28 2018 at 00:06):

it would fit nicely with the ring instance for products and Pis

#### Reid Barton (Sep 28 2018 at 00:08):

The nlab definition of basis is: A basis of a free R-module M (possibly a vector space, see basis of a vector space) is a linear isomorphism $B\colon M \to \oplus_{i\in I}R$ to a direct sum of copies of the ring R, regarded as a module over itself.

#### Reid Barton (Sep 28 2018 at 00:09):

I think this kind of property is more important than "for all i /= j, b_i /= b_j"

#### Reid Barton (Sep 28 2018 at 00:09):

... if you find yourself having to make some decision regarding the zero ring

#### Reid Barton (Sep 28 2018 at 00:15):

Yes okay, now I see you were saying the same thing regarding definition of bases over the zero ring

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 28 2018 at 00:47):

so what does this say about linearly independent sets?

#### Mario Carneiro (Sep 28 2018 at 00:48):

I guess these should also be indexed

#### Johan Commelin (Sep 28 2018 at 01:31):

speaking of which... unit should be a ring

instance : comm_ring unit := by tidy


#### Johan Commelin (Sep 28 2018 at 01:34):

Good luck golfing that...

#### Johan Commelin (Sep 28 2018 at 01:38):

I'm pretty sure that tidy will also prove for you that it is the terminal object in Ring and CRing

#### Kevin Buzzard (Sep 28 2018 at 07:48):

I must confess I was surprised when I first saw that in Lean a basis was a subset. Mulling over this, I realised that it was because I was used to teaching students about bases of finite-dimensional vector spaces -- and this is not a conversation about bases, this is also a conversation about the concepts of linear independence and spanning -- and in these cases it seems more convenient when developing the theory to be considering lists of elements rather than subsets (so order matters, and repeats are OK). For a dumb example, consider the zero ring R. Then R^3=R and hence I want [0,0,0] to be a basis for R, which it is. This is the only case where bases can have repeated elements and also the only case where bases can have different cardinalities. A less pathological example is that if a basis of a fdvs is a list then a linear map is a matrix, rather than some weird concept of a matrix where we don't mind permuting the rows and columns which we'd get for sets. My students did a bunch of stuff involving this over the summer -- linear maps = matrices and so on -- and although their code is probably not mathlib-ready it would not surprise me if they had worked out some good useful and correct statements.

The only situation I know where subsets are better than maps from a type is in the Zorn proof that every vector space has a basis. But this result is in some sense a bit of a novelty, my impression is that working mathematicians very rarely think about infinite-dimensional vector spaces with no extra structure at all, and if there is extra structure (a topology or whatever) then the abstract notion of a basis is usually not what we want anyway (c.f. "basis" of a Hilbert space = lin ind subset with dense span).

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 04 2018 at 13:50):

If we are refactoring modules... would it make sense to rename span to generate? It would be more in line with all the other forms of generate...

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 04 2018 at 14:41):

I was actually thinking about going the other way :)

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 04 2018 at 14:42):

specifically as relates to other "closure" operations e.g. subgroup closure and normal closure

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 04 2018 at 14:43):

For set-of-set operations like filter and topology I prefer generate, but maybe that's not principled enough

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 04 2018 at 14:43):

I agree some uniformity of naming would be a good thing

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 04 2018 at 14:49):

Ok, I don't really care which one gets chosen :lol:

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 03:45):

So I've got to working on ideal now, and I have come to realize that ideal theory is not simply a specialization of submodule theory. It's obvious in hindsight, but as a category the homs are different - a ring hom is not a linear map, and a linear map is not a ring hom

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 03:46):

So this means that things like map and comap don't work the same way on rings

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 03:46):

In particular I don't even think there is a notion of ideal.map unless you assume the map is surjective

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 03:53):

Is there a way to make sense of a ring-changing hom from (R,M) to (R',M') modules?

#### Scott Morrison (Oct 08 2018 at 04:02):

Perhaps there's a notion of a map (R,M) to (R',M') as a linear map f : M to M', and a ring hom g : R' to R (note this is backwards), satisfying g(r') m = r' f(m).

#### Scott Morrison (Oct 08 2018 at 04:03):

I'm not sure it's particularly useful.

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:03):

yeah I was thinking the ring part might end up contravariant

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:03):

so I guess this does not generalize ring homs as maps (R,R) -> (R', R')

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:17):

Is there a way to make sense of a ring-changing hom from (R,M) to (R',M') modules?

@Mario Carneiro What exactly do you mean with this question?

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:18):

I wonder if there is a common generalization of ring homs, (R,R) -> (R', R') and linear maps (R,M) -> (R, M')

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:19):

is there a category theory operation for taking a "total space" over the categories R-Mod where R is an object in the category Ring?

Sure.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:19):

That's a fibered category

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:19):

And this one is one of the first examples

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:21):

A map (R,M) → (R',M') is a pair R → R' + R' \otimes_R M → M'. (Or do I need commutativity for that tensor product?)

Yes, I do.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:21):

This doesn't work for arbitrary R → R'.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:22):

@Mario Carneiro Were you planning on doing left- right- and two-sided-ideals?

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:22):

Or only ideals in comm_rings?

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:23):

Just comm ring ideals, since that's what's there now

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:23):

Ok, so for comm_ring modules you get this really nice fibered category Mod.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:23):

Is that what you were looking for?

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:23):

Note that by adjunction you can also just give a map M → M' that is R-linear

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:24):

R' \otimes_R M

what is this

Tensor product

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:24):

turning M into an R'-module

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:24):

so R' is viewed as a R-module here?

Yes

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:25):

oh, there's an interesting construction we don't have

Which one?

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:25):

a ring hom R -> R' yields a R-module structure on R'

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:25):

You mean the forgetful functor?

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:25):

From R'-mod to R-mod?

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:26):

It's not forgetful, right?

Not really

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:26):

The hom could be anything

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:26):

I still think of it as "forgetting"

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:26):

We have R is an R-mod

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:27):

So if you chain that to the "forget" instance, you have what you want.

I don't follow

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:27):

I tried adding "forget" about 3 months ago, and I ran into trouble.

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:27):

what forget instance?

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:27):

But maybe with the refactor, you can now do it.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:27):

I mean R' is an R'-mod + every R'-mod is an R-mod.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:28):

I want your instance to be broken into 2 steps.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:28):

what forget instance?

The "forgetful" functor instance

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:28):

every R'-mod is an R-mod

This one requires an explicit ring hom input

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:29):

Hmmm, it does... unless we turn R' into an algebra

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:29):

over R

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:29):

ah, we don't have anything like that yet

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:30):

I needed assoc algebras around this time in metamath, now I forget why

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:32):

Ah - multivariate polynomials are the free assoc algebra

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:33):

The ones we have are also commutative

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:34):

At some point we might want non-commutative polynomials as well

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:35):

I have never touched noncomm polynomials, but I guess it's not so hard with the group ring construction

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:35):

... + free monoid construction which we already have

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:35):

So, could we have f^* M'?

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:36):

I think so, what does that mean?

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:36):

where f is a ring hom R → R' and M' is an R'-mod

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:36):

So f^* is the functor R'-mod → R-mod

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 04:37):

ah, okay so this is the contravariant thing that scott mentioned

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:37):

Right, and it is adjoint to tensoring.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:37):

Which is covariant

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:37):

no, that's bullcrap

I'm brainfarting

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 04:38):

Lol. So you get to choose: either you use f^* which is contravariant. Or you use tensor products, and you get something covariant, but "harder to parse".

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 06:40):

@Mario Carneiro How would all this abstract nonsense help with:

So I've got to working on ideal now, and I have come to realize that ideal theory is not simply a specialization of submodule theory. It's obvious in hindsight, but as a category the homs are different - a ring hom is not a linear map, and a linear map is not a ring hom

#### Kenny Lau (Oct 08 2018 at 06:41):

And nobody here has pointed out that extensions of ideals exist, c.f. Atiyah-Macdonald P.9

#### Kenny Lau (Oct 08 2018 at 06:42):

In particular I don't even think there is a notion of ideal.map unless you assume the map is surjective

if f:A->B is a ring hom and L is an ideal in A then L^e is the ideal generated by f(L)

2018-10-08.png

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 06:45):

yeah, okay that's a better idea

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 06:45):

just close the resulting set under ideal operations

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 06:46):

@Mario Carneiro Do you have some sort of todo list of what remains for this refactor?

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 06:46):

@Johan Commelin It's just some idle speculation on my part, I don't really have any concrete implementation ideas

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 06:47):

I'm currently in "tying up loose ends" mode in the refactor, I don't want to introduce new things

Great!

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 06:47):

it's already behind schedule too much

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 06:48):

although it has made several other projects come to the fore, which I will probably have to start working on after I'm done

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 06:48):

foremost of which is the multiple scalar field thing

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 06:48):

After you are done, I think faster should be the first thing on your list. :lol:

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 06:48):

I'm actually working on that ATM

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 06:49):

Wonderful! Thanks for doing that!

#### Kevin Buzzard (Oct 08 2018 at 07:15):

Here are some thoughts. The fundamental notion in algebraic geometry is an "f-map" -- see 6.21.7 in the stacks project. Lemma 6.21.8 shows that this is a natural idea. Although it's dressed up in a geometric language, this is something related to the conversation here. The notion of an f-map shows up in the definition of a morphism of ringed spaces in definition 6.21. In the discussion just below 6.26.3 here we see the notion of an f-map of sheaves of modules. Note in particular in that discussion that the f-maps from G to F are in canonical bijection with two other hom sets, one involving only sheaves on X and one involving only sheaves on Y.

Now of course all this needs a lot of unravelling, and the way to unravel is to ask how what de Jong writes translates into the case of affine schemes, which are just commutative rings in disguise. If I got it right, then he says to focus on the following idea: if $f:A\to B$ is a map of rings and if $G$ is an $A$-module and $F$ a $B$-module, an $f$-map $G\to F$ is simply an $A$-module homomorphism from $G$ to $F$, and the observation is that such maps naturally biject with the $B$-module homomorphisms from $G\otimes_AB$ to $F$. I think this is different to what Scott suggests -- he went the other way.

#### Kevin Buzzard (Oct 08 2018 at 07:20):

I wonder if there is a common generalization of ring homs, (R,R) -> (R', R') and linear maps (R,M) -> (R, M')

I think $f$-maps give this. An $f$-map $(R,M)\to (R',M')$ is a ring map $R\to R'$ and an $R$-module map $M\to M'$ (note I'm constantly using this trick of, the moment I have a ring map $R\to R'$, considering all $R'$-modules as $R$-modules). If $R\to R'$ is the identity then this is just an $R$-module homomorphism, and an example of an $f$-map $(R,R)\to(R',R')$ is given by $(f,f)$, but given $f:R\to R'$ there are $f$-maps $(R,R)\to (R',R')$ which are not $(f,f)$.

#### Kevin Buzzard (Oct 08 2018 at 07:26):

OK so Johan has isolated exactly the same idea, but somehow it seems that he has come from a completely different viewpoint (I don't know what a fibred category is). Regarding commutative v non-commutative, I think it's a good idea to push commutative here. Someone impressed on me decades ago that one should not think of commutative ring theory as a special case of non-commutative ring theory but regard them as completely different areas. I don't know anything about research into non-commutative ring theory, but commutative ring theory is very much alive and kicking -- e.g. ideas from the theory of perfectoid spaces were used here https://arxiv.org/abs/1608.08882 to resolve a the direct summand conjecture. Commutative algebra is the foundation of modern algebraic geometry and I have always been of the opinion (even before I knew anything about formal proof verification software) that books like Atiyah--Macdonald and Matsumura (both standard commutative algebra textbooks) somehow "operated close to the axioms" whilst still being of great modern interest. If we want to push Lean as a tool for algebraic geometry, which it one day might become, then there's no harm focussing on commutative algebra. When someone eventually decides to do some basic representation theory of finite groups we might have to plough through basics of semisimple algebras but that is somehow a completely different project.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 07:27):

@Kevin Buzzard A fibered category is the thing that underlies a stack.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 07:27):

Basically it abstracts $f$-maps

#### Kevin Buzzard (Oct 08 2018 at 07:33):

every R'-mod is an R-mod

This one requires an explicit ring hom input

Patrick mentioned recently that sometimes it's best to concentrate on the morphisms, not the objects. In alg geom we even see it in the name -- an $f$-map is a construction which depends on a map $f$ of rings. In fact Johan is saying all the right things, I need to get up much earlier to get ahead of him. Given $f:R\to R'$ there are then adjoint functors $(R-mod)\to(R'-mod)$ and $(R'-mod)\to(R-mod)$ and hopefully Kenny proved enough about universal property of tensor products to show that these are adjoints. I think that Scott's punt went in the wrong direction. There is a time when you get maps one way and the other way, but that's when you go back to schemes.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 07:34):

In fact Johan is saying all the right things, I need to get up much earlier to get ahead of him.

I've got a 2-year old daughter. You can't win.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 07:35):

Well, what I think that Scott meant that f → f^* is contravariant.

#### Kevin Buzzard (Oct 08 2018 at 07:35):

Kenny's construction is something else though. If $L$ is an ideal of $A$ then $L^e$, the pushforward ideal, is less well-behaved. $L^e$ is the image of $L\otimes_AB$ (the canonical thing when it comes to modules) under the natural map from this guy to $B$ corresponding by adjointness to the map $L\to B$. So it might satisfy some universal property for ideals, but probably not for modules.

#### Kevin Buzzard (Oct 08 2018 at 07:36):

OK I think that's all I have to say and I think that most of it had been said already, but at least I caught up.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 07:36):

For ideals it will probably give you a Galois connection. Here! I said it. Without checking.

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 07:38):

But I guess $L^e$ is the best you can do when you have a ring hom A->B and an ideal L?

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 07:38):

If you want an ideal of B, yes.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 07:39):

Otherwise, you could just tensor, and treat it as a module.

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 07:39):

Is this a thing we can currently do?

What?

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 08 2018 at 07:39):

tensoring like that

I guess almost

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 07:40):

@Kenny Lau Did you include extension of scalars in your work on tensor products?

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 07:40):

@Mario Carneiro Given what we have, it shouldn't be too hard

#### Kenny Lau (Oct 08 2018 at 07:49):

I don’t think I did.

#### Kevin Buzzard (Oct 08 2018 at 08:07):

Oh I see. The issue is that if $M$ is an $A$-module and $B$ is an $A$-algebra (and hence an $A$-module) then $M\otimes_AB$ is not just an $A$-module but a $B$-module.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 08:08):

Right, we don't have something like that atm

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 08:09):

But it shouldn't be hard to put a B-mod structure on the tensor product.

#### Johan Commelin (Oct 08 2018 at 08:10):

I don't know if it should "extend" the A-mod structure, in the sense that if you "restrict" scalars you get an A-mod that is defeq to what you started with.

#### Patrick Massot (Oct 08 2018 at 18:55):

foremost of which is the multiple scalar field thing

I'm completely lost: I thought this module refactor was mostly about multiple scalars

#### Kenny Lau (Oct 22 2018 at 23:44):

How's it going? @Mario Carneiro

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 23 2018 at 00:22):

waiting on my school work to decrease in intensity

#### Mario Carneiro (Oct 23 2018 at 00:22):

hopefully I should be able to find some time for it this week

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 01 2018 at 09:59):

https://github.com/leanprover-community/mathlib/commits/module

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 01 2018 at 09:59):

@Mario Carneiro is there anything we can help with?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 01 2018 at 10:09):

Possibly... I'm just short on time these days. The main work is done, I think, but a bunch of files still need to be updated

what can we do?

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 01 2018 at 10:09):

should I fix the errors?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 01 2018 at 10:09):

go in there and make the red squiggles go away

roger that

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 01 2018 at 10:12):

Don't get too attached to anything that you write there, I'll probably have a look through all the files anyway, but it will be a lot easier if it's not already broken

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 01 2018 at 12:44):

@Mario Carneiro there are things that you deleted and things that depend on them, right

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 01 2018 at 12:44):

I'll just leave those untouched

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 01 2018 at 12:46):

like what? I think all deleted files have equivalents

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 01 2018 at 12:47):

like the order embedding of submodules of submodules, and the prime ideal, and the trivial ideal

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 01 2018 at 12:48):

and also this:

@[simp] theorem Union_set_of_directed {ι} (hι : nonempty ι)
(S : ι → submodule α β)
(H : ∀ i j, ∃ k, S i ≤ S k ∧ S j ≤ S k) :
((supr S : submodule α β) : set β) = ⋃ i, S i :=


#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 01 2018 at 12:48):

prime ideals are still there

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 01 2018 at 12:49):

search for that, it moved somewhere else

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 01 2018 at 12:49):

I think it is Union_coe now

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 01 2018 at 12:49):

prime_ideal doesn't give me anything

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 01 2018 at 12:49):

and i wouldn't search for prime

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 01 2018 at 12:50):

the trivial ideal is bottom

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 01 2018 at 12:50):

ok I searched for prime and I found it

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 01 2018 at 14:32):

@Mario Carneiro what about the embedding “submodules of N” -> “submodules of M” where N is a submodule of M?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 01 2018 at 15:25):

I think that's map N.subtype or map_subtype.order_iso

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 01 2018 at 18:54):

@Mario Carneiro I've pushed a partial fix

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 01 2018 at 18:54):

I'll see what more I can do

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 09:54):

@Mario Carneiro for principal ideal domains, the situation is that {x | a ∣ x} is a set not an ideal, so these definitions are a bit troublesome:

class is_principal_ideal [comm_ring α] (S : set α) : Prop :=
(principal : ∃ a : α, S = {x | a ∣ x})

class principal_ideal_domain (α : Type*) extends integral_domain α :=
(principal : ∀ (S : ideal α), is_principal_ideal (S : set α))


#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 09:54):

what should I do?

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 12:32):

@Mario Carneiro ideal.quotient.eq is missing

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 12:33):

(and submodule.quotient.eq doesn't count)

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 16:17):

Successfully reduced to 4 errors. Pushed.

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 02 2018 at 19:22):

the ideal {x | a ∣ x} is now spelled span {a}

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 20:06):

@Mario Carneiro by "now" do you mean "I've changed that in my private copy" or "I should change that and then push it"?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 02 2018 at 20:06):

I mean in the module branch that's how it is currently used

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 02 2018 at 20:06):

so if you find it elsewhere you should use that

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 20:06):

so it's the latter?

ok

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 02 2018 at 20:07):

is_principal_ideal should be a property of S : ideal

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 20:10):

and what is to become of ideal.quotient.eq? @Mario Carneiro

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 02 2018 at 20:11):

what does quotient_ring look like now?

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 20:12):

it looks like ideal.quotient now

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 20:12):

we have ideal.quotient.mk := submodule.quotient.mk and we have submodule.quotient,eq

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 20:13):

but not ideal.quotient.eq

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 02 2018 at 20:13):

oh sure, you can state ideal.quotient.eq

ok

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 02 2018 at 20:13):

it's just a defeq copy paste job

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 02 2018 at 20:13):

I have not added all theorems from submodules to ideals, I intended to add them as needed

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 02 2018 at 20:14):

you can often just use the submodule version directly, but it is slightly less ergonomic

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 20:16):

I agree (with the latter statement)

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 21:38):

lemma mem_span_singleton {x y : α} :
x ∈ span ({y} : set α) ↔ ∃ a, a * y = x :=


#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 21:38):

@Mario Carneiro can I change this to use dvd?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 02 2018 at 21:39):

maybe make another theorem

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 21:40):

but nobody uses that theorem

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 22:04):

lemma is_maximal_of_irreducible {p : α} (hp : irreducible p) :
is_maximal (span ({p} : set α)) :=


Should this be an instance?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 02 2018 at 22:11):

oh I see, it's copy pasted from the analogous theorem on submodule, where you can't use dvd

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 02 2018 at 22:13):

as for that last one - probably not. Things like irreducible and maximal and nat.prime are forming a new kind of idiom, where the predicate is a class but most of the theorems use it like normal assumptions

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 02 2018 at 22:14):

This is primarily intended to support the few cases where you have to use typeclass inference, like in Z/nZ is a field

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 02 2018 at 23:27):

I want there to be an "is_an_integer" predicate on eg rat to save me from coercions.

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 02 2018 at 23:30):

Isn't that a predicate which is a class?

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 02 2018 at 23:30):

oh well this is going off track

#### Chris Hughes (Nov 02 2018 at 23:33):

Why is it a class?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 02 2018 at 23:37):

I don't just mean a predicate that is a class, we have plenty of those like first_countable X. I mean predicates that are classes that we use without instance brackets in most theorems

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 00:03):

I feel like there is not enough transparency with the module refactoring, so I've decided to write something about it.

• semimodule α β and module α β and vector_space α β now take one more argument, that β is an add_comm_group, i.e. before making an instance of a module, you need to prove that it's an abelian group first.
• vector space is no longer over a field, but a discrete field.
• The idiom for making an instance module α β (after proving that β is an abelian group) is module.of_core { smul := sorry, smul_add := sorry, add_smul := sorry, mul_smul := sorry, one_smul := sorry }.
• is_linear_map and linear_map are now both structures, and they are independent, meaning that linear_map is no longer defined as subtype is_linear_map. The idiom for making linear_map from is_linear_map is is_linear_map.mk' (f : M -> N) (sorry : is_linear_map f), and the idiom for making is_linear_map from linear_map is f.is_linear (i.e. linear_map.is_linear f).
• is_linear_map.add etc no longer exist. instead, you can now add two linear maps together, etc.
• the classis_submodule is gone, replaced by the structure submodule which contains a carrier, i.e. if N : submodule R M then N.carrier is a type. And there is an instance module R N in the same situation.
• similarly, the class is_ideal is gone, replaced by the structure ideal, which also contains a carrier.
• endomorphism ring and general linear group are defined.
• submodules form a complete lattice. the trivial ideal is now idiomatically the bottom element, and the universal ideal the top element.
• linear_algebra/quotient_module.lean is deleted, and it's now submodule.quotient (so if N : submodule R M then submodule R N.quotient) Similarly, quotient_ring.quotient is replaced by ideal.quotient. The canonical map from N to N.quotient is submodule.quotient.mk, and the canonical map from the ideal I to I.quotient is ideal.quotient.mk I.
• linear_equiv is now based on a linear map and an equiv, and the difference being that now you need to prove that the inverse is also linear, and there is currently no interface to get around that.
• Everything you want to know about linear independence and basis is now in the newly created file linear_algebra/basis.lean.
• Everything you want to know about linear combinations is now in the newly created file linear_algebra/lc.lean.
• linear_algebra/linear_map_module.lean and linear_algebra/prod_module.lean and linear_algebra/quotient_module.lean and linear_algebra/submodule.lean and linear_algebra/subtype_module.lean are deleted (with their contents placed elsewhere).

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 00:03):

Ha, this was my secret plan all along

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 00:04):

I think one would prefer transparency

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 00:04):

now that kenny had to read the stuff he knows what changed

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 00:04):

and can write a nice summary for us

lol

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 00:05):

A remark on module.of_core: it's only intended for use when you aren't proving it's a semimodule first

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 00:06):

like if you don't care about semimodules

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 00:07):

I'm sure Kevin doesn't

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 00:07):

By the way, is_linear_map is a late addition. I'm hoping it will not be needed much at all, but it's useful to have as a mixin occasionally

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 00:08):

one would have to refactor tensor_product to get rid of all the dependencies thereto, I believe

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 00:08):

I really want linear_map to be the primary one

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 00:08):

oh, I may have done that already

not entirely

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 00:08):

shoot, I have an unsaved file in vscode

lol

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 00:11):

re: interface for linear_equiv, you don't need to prove the inverse is linear, that's not in the structure

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 00:11):

it's just the union (pushout?) of linear_map and equiv

oh, right

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 00:27):

@Mario Carneiro are you going to push your file?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 00:31):

oh wait, looks like I already pushed most of it

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 00:33):

but tensor product still depends on is_linear_map right?

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 00:36):

protected def id : R ⊗ M ≃ₗ M :=
{ inv_fun := (⊗ₜ) 1,
left_inv := lift.ext
(linear_map.is_linear $linear_map.comp (is_linear_map.mk' _$ (bilinear _ _).linear_right 1) (lift _ _))
linear_map.id.is_linear

⟨λ m, linear_map.is_linear (linear_map.smul_right linear_map.id m),
λ r, linear_map.is_linear (r • linear_map.id)⟩ : R ⊗ M →ₗ M) }


#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 00:36):

I don't think anyone wants to see this

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 00:41):

1. the linear map needs to be put after ..; 2. lack of is_linear_map.comp and the fact that lift.ext and most of the things in tensor_product depend on is_linear_map make proofs very long and cumbersome

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 01:02):

I've only done the first half of that file, so some things may still need to be hashed out

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 01:02):

lift.ext should take linear maps as input

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 01:04):

You shouldn't feel bound to the current way statements of theorems are written, that's what refactoring is about

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 01:05):

Ideally, this construction should be easy, just cobbling together functions we already know are linear

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 01:07):

I think we need another constructor for is_bilinear_map, or is_linear_map, that takes a linear function and asks you to prove equality to the target function

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 01:08):

which corresponds to the alternate definition def is_linear_map (f : β → γ) := ∃ g : β →ₗ γ, ∀ x, f x = g x

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 02:35):

lift.ext should take linear maps as input

I don't think that will work, because there are things that need to be proved to be linear

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 02:37):

do you think I should change is_bilinear_map to bilinear_map?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 02:40):

Huh? lift.ext takes two functions and proofs that they are linear

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 02:40):

that can always be contracted to a function taking a linear_map arg

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 02:42):

I thought about it, but do the set of all bilinear maps have a nice structure like linear maps? Like can you add them and such

yes

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 02:45):

they're even a module

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 02:46):

they're as nice as linear maps

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 02:46):

(because of the universal property of tensor product :P)

well okay then

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:03):

I think bilinear_map still needs to reference is_linear_map though

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 03:03):

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:03):

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 03:03):

I'm experimenting with it now

is Mod(R) a CCC?

CCC?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:04):

cartesian closed category

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:04):

i.e. that thing means what you want it to

yes

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 03:05):

actually I don't know

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 03:05):

I just know that Hom(M tensor N, P) = Hom(M, Hom(N, P))

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 03:05):

so (- tensor N) is right adjoint to Hom(N, -)

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:05):

that looks a lot like the universal property of the exponential

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:06):

Hom(N,P) there is actually an object of the category

looking good

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:41):

maybe I'm spoiled, but I would hope that there was a direct way to get comm

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:41):

maybe it requires the tensor product though

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:42):

I guess it is equivalent to saying that left is a linear map

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:45):

If apply : M -> (M ->l N) ->l N was linear we would have it

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 03:45):

and if comp was also linear.. :P

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:46):

yeah, there should be a principled way to do this using CCCs

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 03:47):

but that would be too category-theoretical for our purposes

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:47):

I mean with the categories unfolded away

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:48):

We know that CCCs interpret lambda calculus, so literally anything you can write down that is type correct will be linear

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:48):

we just need the right building blocks to get everything else

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 03:49):

but we also know that lambda calculus is generated by abstraction and application?

yes

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 03:49):

but abstraction isn't a linear map?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:49):

That's apply

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 03:50):

so what's the conclusion?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:50):

er, no - abstraction is the UMP of apply

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:51):

it works because the families we are considering are themselves linear in their free variables

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:51):

so you get a "lambda" like operator

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:52):

In this context we wouldn't actually be able to write down lambda, because we have "the wrong lambda", it isn't linear because we don't have the right notion of family for the category

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 03:53):

but we can run any lambda term through the CCC translation to get a term using only CCC primitives, and we can prove these are all linear

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 03 2018 at 07:25):

I really like where this is going! Keep up the good work!

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 03 2018 at 08:14):

Yes many thanks Kenny for trying to get the show back on the road. Does this stuff compile yet? Is it worth going back to Hilbert basis theorem yet?

Fixed

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 11:46):

@Mario Carneiro what's the next step?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 11:47):

is it compiling now?

yes

sweet

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 11:49):

unfortunately I still need to finish and review it myself, so it's in the queue with the other PRs now

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 11:49):

If things go well I will have time this weekend for it

nice

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 11:50):

but if you see any other ways to improve it, add more theorems etc, now's the time

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 11:51):

the CCC laws seem like a good place to start

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 11:51):

prove that curry : (A X B -> C) -> (A -> B -> C) is a linear map

an equiv, even

ok

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 11:54):

I don't think that's true

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 12:01):

put l everywhere

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 12:01):

that's homs in the category

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 12:02):

it's (M tensor N) -> P equiv M -> (N -> P)

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 12:06):

1. (M ⊗ N) ⊗ P -> M ⊗ (N ⊗ P)
2. (M ⊗ N) -> P -> M ⊗ (N ⊗ P)
3. P -> (M ⊗ N) -> M ⊗ (N ⊗ P)
4. P -> M -> N -> M ⊗ (N ⊗ P)
5. M -> P -> N -> M ⊗ (N ⊗ P)
6. M -> N -> P -> M ⊗ (N ⊗ P)
7. M -> N ⊗ P -> M ⊗ (N ⊗ P)



yes

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 12:19):

linear equiv I assume

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 12:19):

But I chose that one specifically because it's one of the CCC primitives

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 03 2018 at 12:19):

canonical linear equiv, even... :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 12:20):

apply is another: (M -> N) X M -> N

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 12:21):

it's trivial with that equiv though

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 12:21):

I think the hom adjunction is equivalent to a few terms that you can compose

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 12:21):

like apply and curry

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 12:22):

do we have everything we need for the tensor product to be a product?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 12:22):

Is it also the coproduct?

Nope

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 03 2018 at 12:23):

Coproduct is the direct sum, which is also the product

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 03 2018 at 12:24):

Tensor product is in fact the coproduct in the category of commutative rings

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 03 2018 at 12:25):

Yes but for modules over a commutative ring it's a different story. You can see something funny is going on because there aren't natural maps from M to M tensor N or from M tensor N to M

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 03 2018 at 12:26):

Other than the zero map

wait what?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 12:27):

this is a funny product indeed

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 12:42):

1. (M ⊗ N) ⊗ P -> M ⊗ (N ⊗ P)
2. (M ⊗ N) -> P -> M ⊗ (N ⊗ P)
3. M -> N -> P -> M ⊗ (N ⊗ P)
4. M -> N ⊗ P -> M ⊗ (N ⊗ P)


#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 13:01):

(N ≃ₗ P) -> ((M →ₗ N) ≃ₗ (M →ₗ P))

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 03 2018 at 13:07):

Are you listing the things that you are currently proving?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 13:26):

I think he's just enumerating type correct statements and looking for inhabited types?

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 03 2018 at 13:28):

Do we have dual?

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 03 2018 at 13:29):

Because M.dual \otimes N = Hom(M,N) might be an interesting statement...

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 13:29):

that's just M ->L R

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 13:30):

and what you said is only true for M finitely dimensional vector space

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 03 2018 at 13:30):

Of course, but it is a useful concept.

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 03 2018 at 13:30):

I'm probably missing some hypotheses...

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 13:30):

don't let truth get in the way of beauty

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:17):

lol, now this has got me thinking about rewriting free_group again

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:19):

one way to get the right defeqs here is to have the actual definition of free_group be the quotient of expressions in the language of groups with the group laws, and then prove that this is isomorphic to lists

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 14:19):

and how would one implement "expressions"?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:19):

expressions in the language of groups means trees

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:19):

you just have a symbol for one and inv and mul

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:20):

and the basis elements

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:20):

and you get trees

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 14:20):

and what do you mean by tree?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:20):

inductive group_expr (A) : Type
| one : group_expr
| inv : group_expr -> group_expr
| mul : group_expr -> group_expr -> group_expr


aha

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 14:21):

how would that help?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:21):

if you define this as an inductive, and define the relations as a quotient, you will get really nice defeq

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:22):

lift (x * y) = lift x * lift y, lift 1 = 1, lift x = f x

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 14:22):

I don't see how this is different from redefining list.prod so that list.prod [f] is definitionally equivalent to f?

oh

fair enough

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 03 2018 at 14:23):

one way to get the right defeqs here is to have the actual definition of free_group be the quotient of expressions in the language of groups with the group laws, and then prove that this is isomorphic to lists

Wait... in the other thread you said we shouldn't focus on getting all the right defeqs... :sad:

lol

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:23):

sometimes it matters

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:24):

The reason quotient types exist is because of defeqs

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:24):

otherwise we would just use sets of sets

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:25):

there is no way to build quotient types like lean's without an axiom

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:26):

we can get something provably isomorphic, but it won't have the defeq on lift

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 03 2018 at 14:26):

I probably haven't experience the pain of working without lean's quotient types... what is wrong with sets of sets?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:27):

It allows you to define functions that have a certain behavior by definition on the basis elements

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:28):

You can live without defeq, in set theory they do this

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 14:28):

@Mario Carneiro so, are you going to do it, or do you intend me to do it? :P

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:28):

but it is nice to have for computational purposes

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:29):

I think I have enough major projects to do :) Like Johan says, it's not essential

ok

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:29):

but if it interests you, feel free

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 03 2018 at 14:30):

I encourage both of you to first get this merged into mathlib before embarking on new projects...

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 03 2018 at 14:30):

(or expanding the scope of this refactor)

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 14:31):

ok I pushed the tensor product

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 14:31):

@Mario Carneiro should we PR it now?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:32):

sure, that will give it more exposure

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 14:33):

more exposure to what?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:33):

people with ideas

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:34):

obviously I'm already aware of this PR, and I will merge it when ready

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:38):

when I am satisfied with all the changes? It was unfinished when I last reviewed it

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 03 2018 at 14:39):

thank you for fixing the bugs, but some things still take time

#### Patrick Massot (Nov 03 2018 at 16:57):

Thank you very much @Kenny Lau for the documentation effort (and help with actual Lean)! Should we already copy that to docs/theories/linear_algebra or could it still change?

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 16:58):

It could still change

#### Patrick Massot (Nov 03 2018 at 16:58):

Ok. It would be very useful if you could update it when it will stabilize, so that we'll be able to incorporate it to the docs

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 22:11):

@Mario Carneiro ok I pushed the refactored free_group.lean

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 22:11):

(it won't build now; I'll fix the errors if you like the new free_group)

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 22:27):

also, I don't understand why it is ok that linear_map doesn't take the ring as an argument

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 03 2018 at 22:57):

ok I put the free group in a new branch and resetted the PR'ed branch

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 04 2018 at 18:21):

So I thought I'd try and get the hang of modules in Lean. Is this construction somewhere in the module branch:

import linear_algebra.basic

example (R S : Type) [comm_ring R] [comm_ring S] (f : R → S) [is_ring_hom f] (M : Type)
[add_comm_group M] (HM : module S M) : module R M := sorry


?

#### Chris Hughes (Nov 04 2018 at 18:30):

It's a new structure. Don't you just have to define a has_scalar instance first?

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 04 2018 at 18:31):

import linear_algebra.basic

instance has_scalar_of_ring_hom (R S : Type) [comm_ring R] [comm_ring S] (f : R → S) [is_ring_hom f] (M : Type) [has_scalar S M] :

mul_smul := sorry,
one_smul := sorry,
zero_smul := sorry,
smul_zero := sorry
}
-- maximum class-instance resolution depth has been reached


My question is whether this is already in the module refactoring, which I think was to a certain extent inspired by the fact that this used to be hard to do

#### Chris Hughes (Nov 04 2018 at 18:33):

I don't think type class inference knows how to infer f. Try making the first things a def, and then giving to_has_scalar or whatever explicitly. Thinking about it, I don't think the second thing can be an instance with the current setup either.

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 04 2018 at 18:39):

Oh this is exactly one of those situations where I don't know how to put something into the type class inference machine because I'm in term mode.

#### Chris Hughes (Nov 04 2018 at 18:39):

by haveI := _; exact _

no errors :D

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 04 2018 at 18:40):

so I have to go into tactic mode to put something into the type class inference machine?

I think so.

#### Chris Hughes (Nov 04 2018 at 18:42):

This should also work I think.

example (R S : Type) [comm_ring R] [comm_ring S] (f : R → S) [is_ring_hom f] (M : Type)
[add_comm_group M] [HM : module S M] : module R M :=
{ to_has_scalar := has_scalar_of_ring_hom R S f M,
mul_smul := sorry,
one_smul := sorry,
zero_smul := sorry,
smul_zero := sorry }
end


#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 04 2018 at 18:46):

Now I have problems with two smuls. @Kenny Lau Is this done already? I don't want to waste my time if it's already there, but this is exactly what I have always needed for Hilbert basis.

#### Chris Hughes (Nov 04 2018 at 18:47):

I would wait until after module refactorign

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 04 2018 at 18:47):

the right thing to do is just say smul := sorry, right

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 04 2018 at 18:47):

no, this hasn’t been done

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 04 2018 at 18:53):

I see. I think Kenny is pointing out that by "The idiom for making an instance module α β (after proving that β is an abelian group) is module.of_core" he means the strong statement that end users should actually never make modules directly. Is that right Kenny? I still need an instance of module R M though -- how do I get it?

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 04 2018 at 19:18):

rw doesn't do unfolding (i.e. if I tell it rw H with H : X = Y and X isn't directly in view, it won't start unfolding things in an attempt to find X, even if something immediately unfolds to give X). Is the same true for the stupid triangle?

#### Chris Hughes (Nov 04 2018 at 19:18):

Yes. What about erw

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 04 2018 at 19:19):

I still seem to need the show for add_smul.

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 04 2018 at 19:22):

 add_smul := λ r s m, (((@is_ring_hom.map_add _ _ _ _ f _ r s).symm ▸ (add_smul (f r) (f s) m)) : f (r + s) • m = f r • m + f s • m),

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 04 2018 at 19:22):

longer than the tactic proof ;-)

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 04 2018 at 19:23):

It ought to be by tidy.

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 04 2018 at 19:24):

does tidy know to try a theorem called add_smul when proving something called add_smul?

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 04 2018 at 19:24):

Only if it is a simp-lemma

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 04 2018 at 19:25):

But maybe, once backwords reasoning is merged, this could realistically done by tidy.

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 04 2018 at 19:58):

Will this instance ever trigger?

#### Chris Hughes (Nov 04 2018 at 20:37):

I doubt it. It will have to find a ring hom out of nowhere.

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 04 2018 at 20:41):

maybe we should make ring_hom just like linear_map

#### David Michael Roberts (Nov 04 2018 at 21:16):

is Mod(R) a CCC?

No, because the monoidal structure is not cartesian. What you want is https://ncatlab.org/nlab/show/closed+monoidal+category

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 05 2018 at 06:39):

@Mario Carneiro why does this time out?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 06:41):

polynomials have had problems with long elaboration in the past

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 06:41):

check that it isn't doing any crazy typeclass searches?

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 05 2018 at 06:45):

it's searching for has_one nat and has_add nat like a billion times

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 06:48):

still profiling (slow business, of course) but it looks like the second block takes much longer than the first

oh, thanks

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 05 2018 at 06:49):

@Kevin Buzzard should I push what I have in my kmb_hilbert_basis?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 06:49):

it takes 3.5 seconds with the sorry in, which is bad but not that bad so I guess you are worried about the commented out bit

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 05 2018 at 06:51):

but why does polynomial have long elaboration time?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 06:59):

If I replace the last rwa in the second block with rw, the final state is:

...
this : leading_coeff (g * X ^ (nat_degree f - nat_degree g) + f) = b + a
⊢ leading_coeff (g * X ^ (nat_degree g - nat_degree f) + f) = a + b


I'm not sure how assumption is supposed to close that

ah

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 07:01):

it's probably taking forever unfolding all the things to see if those are actually the same

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 05 2018 at 07:04):

should I add two submodules together?

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 05 2018 at 07:11):

import algebra.module

universes u v

isn't this \sup?

oh

lol

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 07:13):

I realize that ring theorists prefer the notations $A + B$ and $A\cap B$ to $A\vee B$ and $A\wedge B$, but I think we should go for more notational uniformity

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 05 2018 at 09:12):

oh, coeff_is_linear uses is_linear_map, should I refactor that? @Mario Carneiro

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 05 2018 at 09:25):

def map_mk (I J : ideal α) : ideal I.quotient :=
{ carrier := mk I '' J,
zero := ⟨0, J.zero_mem, rfl⟩,
add := by rintro _ _ ⟨x, hx, rfl⟩ ⟨y, hy, rfl⟩;
exact ⟨x + y, J.add_mem hx hy, rfl⟩,
smul := by rintro ⟨c⟩ _ ⟨x, hx, rfl⟩;
exact ⟨c * x, J.mul_mem_left hx, rfl⟩ }


I think we can generalize this @Mario Carneiro

to what?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 09:26):

yes on coeff btw, you may need a second function though

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 05 2018 at 09:50):

@Mario Carneiro and how far away are we from the refactoring?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 09:52):

plan is to finish it today; I am currently rejiggering some stuff with is_unit and nonunits prompted by some of Rob's applications

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 05 2018 at 10:07):

are you working on a separate branch or a private repo or something? i.e. should I just push to that branch?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 10:08):

I'm working locally, feel free to keep committing to the module branch and I'll merge when I push

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 05 2018 at 10:09):

do you want to push your work to the community branches?

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 05 2018 at 10:09):

Kenny and I are just chatting on Skype

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 05 2018 at 10:10):

For Hilbert basis

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 05 2018 at 10:10):

one perhaps needs that there's some inclusion of lattices -- if R -> S is a ring hom and M is an S-module

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 05 2018 at 10:11):

then there's an order preserving injection from the lattice of sub-S-modules to the lattice of sub-R-modules

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 10:12):

okay, it's broken tho

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 05 2018 at 10:12):

A sub-R-module is just a sub-f(R)-module where f(R) is the subring of S

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 05 2018 at 10:13):

If R -> S is an injection with M an S-module then there's an injection from the sub-S-modules to the sub-R-modules

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 05 2018 at 10:14):

If R -> S is a surjection and M is an R-module then the submodule of M consisting of stuff which is annihiliated by the kernel of R->S is an S-module

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 05 2018 at 10:15):

and that way you get an injection from sub-S-modules to sub-R-modules

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 05 2018 at 10:40):

import data.polynomial

@Mario Carneiro

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 10:41):

it's probably guessing the wrong scalar ring here

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 10:42):

that's the next thing on the list after the module refactor

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 05 2018 at 10:42):

There's a _list_??

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 05 2018 at 10:42):

I feel there is a need for module refactor 2.0 :rolling_on_the_floor_laughing:

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 05 2018 at 10:42):

I never realised modules were so hard :-)

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 05 2018 at 10:44):

yeah that's 'coz you're a mathematician

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 10:54):

the list is my todo list, and it's on the list because people want modules to have multiple scalar rings

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 05 2018 at 10:59):

I am just trying to formalise various standard results in undergraduate algebra like Hilbert basis and reporting back on what mathematicians use

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 13:18):

@Kenny Lau @Johannes Hölzl The final draft of the module refactor is pushed

#### Kenny Lau (Nov 05 2018 at 13:18):

so... coeff is linear?

it is now

thanks

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 05 2018 at 13:25):

So how do I make an S-module into an R-module if I have a ring hom $f : R \to S$?

thanks too

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 13:28):

Maybe there should be a way to put chosen ring homs in the typeclass infrastructure?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 13:28):

Otherwise you just have to introduce it locally every time

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 13:29):

I assume you aren't asking how to define the R-module structure, that's not difficult at all

#### Johan Commelin (Nov 05 2018 at 13:30):

Maybe there should be a way to put chosen ring homs in the typeclass infrastructure?

I think we could also try using a structure algebra.

#### Kevin Buzzard (Nov 05 2018 at 13:34):

I assume you aren't asking how to define the R-module structure, that's not difficult at all

Right -- I'm asking for the idiomatic way to do it.

#### Johannes Hölzl (Nov 05 2018 at 13:46):

@Mario Carneiro why is it now a mixing, i.e. why is the group structure not part of modules anymore?

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 13:48):

Because the parent coercion module R M => add_comm_group M was causing much of the module typeclass issues

#### Mario Carneiro (Nov 05 2018 at 13:49):

plus if R becomes not an out_param then it won't even work

#### Johannes Hölzl (Nov 05 2018 at 15:17):

the module PR looks very good to me

COMMIT 1000

#### Neil Strickland (Feb 01 2019 at 11:18):

Bases should definitely be maps or lists. Some treatments of finite-dimensional linear algebra purport to use subsets, but they are almost always wrong if read literally, and would require fiddly side-conditions to make them right. Also, to talk about the standard algorithms you need efficient translation between bases and matrices, which becomes very awkward if you use subsets.

#### Johan Commelin (Feb 01 2019 at 11:21):

It isn't too hard to convert between a subset and a map. But maybe there should be a bit more API for this. Is there something specific that you are missing?

#### Johan Commelin (Feb 01 2019 at 11:21):

Matrices are currently indexed by fintypes (not necessarily ordered).

#### Kenny Lau (Feb 01 2019 at 11:26):

... is this related to the previous discussion?

#### Neil Strickland (Feb 01 2019 at 11:30):

I think not, sorry. Zulip sometimes gets in a funny state where it shows me very old posts mixed in with new ones, and I was accidentally replying to one of those. I am not quite sure what is going on with that.
