# ApCoCoA-1:NC.Add

## NC.Add

Addition of two polynomials over a free associative `K`-algebra.

### Syntax

NC.Add(F1:LIST, F2:LIST):LIST

### Description

*Please note:* The function(s) explained on this page is/are using the *ApCoCoAServer*. You will have to start the ApCoCoAServer in order to use it/them.

Before calling the function, please set ring environment coefficient field `K`, alphabet `X` and ordering through the functions NC.SetFp(Prime) (or NC.UnsetFp()), NC.SetX(X) and NC.SetOrdering(Ordering) respectively. Default coefficient field is `Q`. Default ordering is length-lexicographic ordering ("LLEX"). For more information, please check the relevant functions.

@param

*F1*: left operand of addition operator. It is a polynomial in`K<X>`. Each polynomial in`K<X>`is represented as a LIST of LISTs, which are pairs of form [c, w] where c is in`K`and w is a word in`X*`. Unit in`X*`is empty word represented as an empty STRING "".`0`polynomial is represented as an empty LIST []. For example, polynomial`F:=xy-y+1`in`K<x,y>`is represented as`F:=[[1,"xy"], [-1, "y"], [1,""]]`.@param

*F2*: right operand of addition operator. It is a polynomial in`K<X>`.@return: a LIST which represents polynomial

`F1+F2`.

#### Example

NC.SetX(<quotes>abc</quotes>); NC.SetOrdering(<quotes>ELIM</quotes>); NC.RingEnv(); Coefficient ring : Q Alphabet : abc Ordering : ELIM ------------------------------- F1 := [[1,<quotes>a</quotes>],[1,<quotes></quotes>]]; F2 := [[1,<quotes>b</quotes>],[1,<quotes>ba</quotes>]]; NC.Add(F1,F2); -- over Q [[1, <quotes>ba</quotes>], [1, <quotes>a</quotes>], [1, <quotes>b</quotes>], [1, <quotes></quotes>]] ------------------------------- NC.SetFp(); -- set default Fp = F2 NC.RingEnv(); Coefficient ring : Fp = Z/(2) Alphabet : abc Ordering : ELIM ------------------------------- NC.Add(F1,F2); -- over F2 [[1, <quotes>ba</quotes>], [1, <quotes>a</quotes>], [1, <quotes>b</quotes>], [1, <quotes></quotes>]] ------------------------------- NC.Add(F1,F1); -- over F2 [ ] -------------------------------
