About: About this document findimAlgebra
Procedure from library nctools.lib (see nctools_lib).

findimAlgebra(M,[r]); M a matrix, r an optional ring


define a finite dimensional algebra structure on a ring

the matrix M is used to define the relations x(i)*x(j) = M[i,j] in the basering (by default) or in the optional ring r.
The procedure equips the ring with the noncommutative structure.
The procedure exports the ideal (not a two-sided Groebner basis!), called fdQuot, for further qring definition.

finite dimensional algebra can be represented as a factor algebra of a G-algebra modulo certain two-sided ideal. The relations of a f.d. algebra are thus naturally divided into two groups: firstly, the relations on the variables of the ring, making it into G-algebra and the rest of them, which constitute the ideal which will be factored out.
