Can it be > expressed algebraically, or it is just some "implementation detail"? Both. (1+y)*Mod(1,z) is an object living in the ring (Q[Z]/(Z))[Y], so it is a polynomial in Y whose coeffcients are cosets in Z. Mod(1+y,z) is an object living in Q(Z)[Y]/(Z) so it is a coset, but the ideal (Z) being trivial because Z is invertible, this quotient is the null ring. Hopes I have answered your question. Bill.
