D.13.1.5 groebnerFanP

Procedure from library polymake.lib (see polymake_lib).

groebnerFanP(f); f poly

list, the ith entry of L[1] contains information about the ith cone in the Groebner fan dual to the ith vertex in the Newton polytope of the f
L[1][i][1] = integer matrix representing the inequalities which describe the cone
L[1][i][2] = a list which contains the inequalities represented by L[1][i][1] as a list of strings
L[1][i][3] = an interger matrix whose rows are the extreme rays of the cone
L[2] = is an integer matrix whose rows span the linearity space of the fan, i.e. the linear space which is contained
in each cone
L[3] = the Newton polytope of f in the format of the procedure newtonPolytopeP
L[4] = integer matrix where each row represents the exponent vector of one monomial occuring in the input polynomial

- if you have already computed the Newton polytope of f then you might want to use the procedure normalFanL instead in order to avoid doing costly computation twice
- the procedure calls for its computation polymake by Ewgenij Gawrilow, TU Berlin and Michael Joswig, so it only works if polymake is installed; see http://www.math.tu-berlin.de/polymake/

// the Newton polytope of f is
list gf=groebnerFanP(f);
// the exponent vectors of f are ordered as follows
// the first cone of the groebner fan has the inequalities
// as a string they look like
// and it has the extreme rays
// the linearity space is spanned by
// the vertices of the Newton polytope are:
// its dimension is
// np[3] contains information how the vertices are connected to each other,
// e.g. the 1st vertex is connected to the 2nd, 3rd and 4th vertex
