# Ring automorphisms #

This file defines the automorphism group structure on RingAut R := RingEquiv R R.

## Implementation notes #

The definition of multiplication in the automorphism group agrees with function composition, multiplication in Equiv.Perm, and multiplication in CategoryTheory.End, but not with CategoryTheory.comp.

This file is kept separate from Data/Equiv/Ring so that GroupTheory.Perm is free to use equivalences (and other files that use them) before the group structure is defined.

RingAut

def RingAut (R : Type u_1) [Mul R] [Add R] :
Type u_1

The group of ring automorphisms.

Instances For
instance RingAut.instGroupRingAut (R : Type u_1) [Mul R] [Add R] :

The group operation on automorphisms of a ring is defined by fun g h => RingEquiv.trans h g. This means that multiplication agrees with composition, (g*h)(x) = g (h x).

Monoid homomorphism from ring automorphisms to additive automorphisms.

Instances For
def RingAut.toMulAut (R : Type u_1) [Mul R] [Add R] :

Monoid homomorphism from ring automorphisms to multiplicative automorphisms.

Instances For
def RingAut.toPerm (R : Type u_1) [Mul R] [Add R] :

Monoid homomorphism from ring automorphisms to permutations.

Instances For
instance RingAut.applyMulSemiringAction {R : Type u_2} [] :

The tautological action by the group of automorphism of a ring R on R.

Each element of the group defines a ring automorphism.

This is a stronger version of DistribMulAction.toAddAut and MulDistribMulAction.toMulAut.
