D.7.3.3 ImageVariety

Procedure from library rinvar.lib (see rinvar_lib).

ImageVariety(ideal I, F [, w]);ideal I; F is a list/ideal, intvec w.

compute the Zariski closure of the image of the variety of I under the morphism F.

if 'I' and 'F' are quasihomogenous w.r.t. 'w' then the Hilbert-driven 'std' is used.

polynomial ring over the same ground field, containing the ideal 'imageid'. The variables are Y(1),...,Y(k) where k = size(F) - 'imageid' is the ideal of the Zariski closure of F(X) where X is the variety of I.

==> imageid[1]=Y(1)*Y(2)-Y(3)^2
