# Magma object from magma.eval()?

How can I get a Magma object to use inside of Sage from something created in Magma through magma.eval()? Is this possible?

Magma object from magma.eval()?

Suppose you created a polynomial in Magma with the following command:

```
sage: magma.eval('R<x> := PolynomialRing(RationalField()); f := (x-17/2)^3;')
```

Then, you can get a Sage version of that object like this:

```
sage: magma('f').sage()
```

The `magma('f')`

part creates an object (`MagmaElement`

) in Sage which is basically a pointer to the variable `f`

in the Magma session. (You can actually use this perform calls on this objects which will translate to Magma commands. For example, `magma('f').Factorization()`

is basically same as doing `magma.eval('result := Factorization(f);')`

and returning `magma('result')`

.) The `sage()`

method will convert a `MagmaElement`

to the corresponding Sage object if possible.
