Congruences of Setoid Algebras

This is the Setoid.Algebras.Congruences module of the Agda Universal Algebra Library.

We now define the function compatible so that, if 𝑨 denotes an algebra and R a binary relation, then compatible 𝑨 R will represent the assertion that R is compatible with all basic operations of 𝑨. The formal definition is immediate since all the work is done by the relation |:, which we defined above (see Setoid.Relations.Discrete).

A congruence relation of an algebra 𝑨 is defined to be an equivalence relation that is compatible with the basic operations of 𝑨. This concept can be represented in a number of alternative but equivalent ways. Formally, we define a record type (IsCongruence) to represent the property of being a congruence, and we define a Sigma type (Con) to represent the type of congruences of a given algebra.

Congruences should obviously contain the equality relation on the underlying setoid. That is, they must be reflexive. Unfortunately this doesn’t come for free (e.g., as part of the definition of IsEquivalence on Setoid), so we must add the field reflexive to the definition of IsCongruence. (In fact, we should probably redefine equivalence relation on setiods to be reflexive with respect to the underying setoid equality (and not just with respect to ).)

module _ (𝑨 : Algebra α ρ) where
 open Algebra 𝑨  using ()  renaming (Domain to A )
 open Setoid A   using ( _≈_ )

 record IsCongruence (θ : BinRel 𝕌[ 𝑨 ] ) : Type (𝓞  𝓥  ρ    α)  where
  constructor mkcon
  field
   reflexive :  {a₀ a₁}  a₀  a₁  θ a₀ a₁
   is-equivalence : IsEquivalence θ
   is-compatible  : 𝑨 ∣≈ θ

  Eqv : Equivalence 𝕌[ 𝑨 ] {}
  Eqv = θ , is-equivalence

 open IsCongruence public

 Con : { : Level}  Type (α  ρ  ov )
 Con {} = Σ[ θ  ( BinRel 𝕌[ 𝑨 ]  ) ] IsCongruence θ

Each of these types captures what it means to be a congruence and they are equivalent in the sense that each implies the other. One implication is the “uncurry” operation and the other is the second projection.

IsCongruence→Con : {𝑨 : Algebra α ρ}(θ : BinRel 𝕌[ 𝑨 ] )  IsCongruence 𝑨 θ  Con 𝑨
IsCongruence→Con θ p = θ , p

Con→IsCongruence : {𝑨 : Algebra α ρ}((θ , _) : Con 𝑨 {})  IsCongruence 𝑨 θ
Con→IsCongruence θ =  θ 

Quotient algebras

In many areas of abstract mathematics the quotient of an algebra 𝑨 with respect to a congruence relation θ of 𝑨 plays an important role. This quotient is typically denoted by 𝑨 / θ and Agda allows us to define and express quotients using this standard notation.

open Algebra  using ( Domain ; Interp )
open Setoid   using ( Carrier )
open Func     using ( cong ) renaming ( f to _⟨$⟩_  )

_╱_ : (𝑨 : Algebra α ρ)  Con 𝑨 {}  Algebra α 
Domain (𝑨  θ) = 𝕌[ 𝑨 ] / (Eqv  θ )
(Interp (𝑨  θ)) ⟨$⟩ (f , a) = (f ̂ 𝑨) a
cong (Interp (𝑨  θ)) {f , u} {.f , v} (refl , a) = is-compatible  θ  f a

module _ (𝑨 : Algebra α ρ) where
 open Algebra 𝑨  using ( )      renaming (Domain to A )
 open Setoid A   using ( _≈_ )  renaming (refl to refl₁)

 _/∙_ : 𝕌[ 𝑨 ]  (θ : Con 𝑨{})  Carrier (Domain (𝑨  θ))
 a /∙ θ = a

 /-≡ :  (θ : Con 𝑨{}){u v : 𝕌[ 𝑨 ]}
