sage: D.<Y> = QQ[]
sage: B = matrix(D, [[Y, 0]])
sage: Dbar = D.quotient(Y-1)
sage: Bbar = B.change_ring(Dbar)
sage: Bbar.lift()
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
TypeError: unable to convert 1 to a rational
Lifting single elements instead of a matrix works:
sage: Dbar(Y^2).lift()
1
Lifting a matrix from the integers modulo a prime works also:
sage: B = matrix(ZZ, [[7, 0]])
sage: Dbar = ZZ.quotient(5)
sage: Bbar = B.change_ring(Dbar)
sage: Bbar.lift()
[2 0]
So how do I lift the matrix? Building a new matrix by hand und lifting componentwise seems to be an option; however, I think that it is somewhat ugly.Clemens HeubergerSat, 12 Nov 2016 23:47:52 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/35555/
