D.4.11.1 locNormal
Procedure from library locnormal.lib (see locnormal_lib).
 Usage:
 locNormal(I [,options]); I = prime ideal, options = list of options.
Optional parameters in list options (can be entered in any order):
modular: use a modular approach for the local computations. The number of primes is
increased one at a time, starting with 2 primes, until the result stabelizes.
noVerificication: if the modular approach is used, the result will not be verified.
 Assume:
 I is a prime ideal (the algorithm will also work for radical ideals as long as the
normal command does not detect that the ideal under consideration is not prime).
 Return:
 a list of an ideal U and a universal denominator d such that U/d is the normalization.
 Remarks:
 We use the localtoglobal algorithm given in [1] to compute the normalization of
A = R/I, where R is the basering.
The idea is to stratify the singular locus of A, apply the normalization algorithm
given in [2] locally at each stratum, and put the local results together.
If the option modular is given, the result is returned as a probabilistic result
or verified, depending on whether the option noVerificication is used or not.
The normalization of A is represented as an Rmodule by returning a list of U and d,
where U is an ideal of A and d is an element of A such that U/d is the normalization of A.
In fact, U and d are returned as an ideal and a polynomial of the base ring R.

Example:
 LIB "locnormal.lib";
ring R = 0,(x,y,z),dp;
int k = 4;
poly f = (x^(k+1)+y^(k+1)+z^(k+1))^24*(x^(k+1)*y^(k+1)+y^(k+1)*z^(k+1)+z^(k+1)*x^(k+1));
f = subst(f,z,3x2y+1);
ring S = 0,(x,y),dp;
poly f = imap(R,f);
ideal i = f;
list L = locNormal(i);
