D.13.2.13 cyclePoints

Procedure from library polymake.lib (see polymake_lib).

cyclePoints(triang,points,pt) triang,points list, pt int

- points is a list of integer vectors describing the lattice points of a marked polygon;
- triang is a list of integer vectors describing a triangulation of the marked polygon in the sense that an integer vector of the form (i,j,k) describes the triangle formed by polygon[i], polygon[j] and polygon[k];
- pt is an integer between 1 and size(points), singling out a lattice point among the marked points

consider the convex lattice polygon, say P, spanned by all lattice points in points which in the triangulation triang are connected to the point points[pt]; the procedure computes all marked points in points which lie on the boundary of that polygon, ordered clockwise

list, of integer vectors which are the coordinates of the lattice points on the boundary of the above mentioned polygon P, if this polygon is not the empty set (that would be the case if points[pt] is not a vertex of any triangle in the
triangulation); otherwise return the empty list
