If I have a system of polynomials in $CC[x, y, z]$ or any other field, is there a way to create constants that are in that field in a way that makes Groebner basis computation still work? For example, if I want to compute the Groebner basis for the ideal generated by y^2 + z - c1 x*y^2 - c2 - 2  Is there a way to indicate that the $c1$ and $c2$ are in $CC$ or whatever field I'm in? I've figured out how to get them to not be indeterminates (over the symbolic ring), Ideal (y^2 + z - c1, x*y^2 - c2 - 2) of Multivariate Polynomial Ring in x, y, z over Symbolic Ring  but then the polynomials containing them don't have division. AttributeError: 'MPolynomialRing_polydict_with_category' object has no attribute 'monomial_divides'  Thank you!
