MatrixAlgebra ( alg^mat A, fld^fin E ) -> alg^mat, map()

Optional Arguments

Resultselt-ord^rat1 <= Results <= 2


Given a matrix algebra A over the finite field F and a subfield E of F, return the matrix algebra N over E obtained from A by expanding each component of an element of A into the block matrix associated with it (i.e. so N is A considered as an E-matrix algebra), together with the E-isomorphism from A onto N.


x_E:=FiniteField(5); x_Ey:=PolynomialAlgebra(x_E); x_F:= Extension(x_E,x_Ey.1^2+2); x_ma:=MatrixAlgebra(x_F,3); MatrixAlgebra(x_ma,x_E);
