D.13.1.9 cycleLength

Procedure from library polymake.lib (see polymake_lib).

cycleLength(boundary,interior); list boundary, intvec interior

boundary is a list of integer vectors describing a cycle in some convex lattice polygon around the lattice point interior ordered clock wise

string, the cycle length of the corresponding cycle in the dual tropical curve

LIB "polymake.lib";
// the integer vectors in boundary are lattice points on the boundary
// of a convex lattice polygon in the plane
list boundary=intvec(0,0),intvec(0,1),intvec(0,2),intvec(2,2),
// interior is a lattice point in the interior of this lattice polygon
intvec interior=1,1;
// compute the general cycle length of a cycle of the corresponding cycle
// in the dual tropical curve, note that (0,1) and (2,1) do not contribute
