oppositeRing -- Creates the opposite ring of a noncommutative ring

Synopsis

Description

Given a noncommutative ring A, this creates a noncommutative ring whose defining ideal is generated by the "opposites" - elements whose noncommutative monomial terms have been reversed - of the generators of the defining ideal of A.

i1 : R = QQ[q]/ideal{q^4+q^3+q^2+q+1}

o1 = R

o1 : QuotientRing
i2 : A = skewPolynomialRing(R,q,{x,y,z,w})
Using GC ring in VectorArithmetic.

o2 = A

o2 : FreeAlgebraQuotient
i3 : x*y == q*y*x

o3 = true
i4 : Aop = oppositeRing A
Using GC ring in VectorArithmetic.

o4 = Aop

o4 : FreeAlgebraQuotient
i5 : y*x == q*x*y

o5 = true
