CharacteristicClasses :: CheckSmooth

CheckSmooth

Description

The option CheckSmooth is only used by the commands CSM and only when computing the CSM class of a toric variety. It is set to true by default. When true it will check if the toric variety is smooth before proceeding, if it is this will speed up computation; however checking for smoothness does take some time.
