Hello,

I am new to Sage and I want to to do some math on p-adic power series. I want to define such a power series but I did not succeeded. The last line of the following code rises an exception:

p = 2
q = 4
K = Qp(p)
L.<omega> = Qq(q)
O_L = L.integer_ring()
R.<X> = PowerSeriesRing(O_L)
pi = L.uniformizer()
q = L.residue_class_degree()
f(X) = X^q + pi*X


TypeError: unsupported operand parent(s) for '*': '2-adic Field with capped relative precision 20' and 'Symbolic Ring'

Can someone help me, please? Thanks for your time!

Bye Lars

You should write:

sage: f = X^q + pi*X
sage: f
(2 + O(2^21))*X + (1 + O(2^20))*X^2


Otherwise, while writing f(X)=... you redefine X as being an element of the symbolic ring:

sage: f(X) = X^q + pi*X
TypeError: unsupported operand parent(s) for '*': 'Unramified Extension of 2-adic Field with capped relative precision 20 in omega defined by (1 + O(2^20))*x^2 + (1 + O(2^20))*x + (1 + O(2^20))' and 'Symbolic Ring'
sage: X.parent()
Symbolic Ring

Thanks! This solves my problem.
