Macaulay2Doc :: Ring _ ZZ

Ring _ ZZ -- get a ring variable by index

Synopsis

Description

The indexing of generators is based on 0, so R_0 would be the first one, and so on.
i1 : R = ZZ[a..d]

o1 = R

o1 : PolynomialRing
i2 : R_2

o2 = c

o2 : R

If the coefficient ring is a polynomial ring, then the numbering matches that in the list returned by generators.

i3 : S = R[x,y,z]

o3 = S

o3 : PolynomialRing
i4 : generators(S,CoefficientRing=>ZZ)

o4 = {x, y, z, a, b, c, d}

o4 : List
i5 : S_2

o5 = z

o5 : S
i6 : S_6

o6 = d

o6 : S
