PHCpack :: StartDimension

StartDimension -- optional input for cascade and numericalIrreducibleDecomposition



Optional argument for cascade and numericalIrreducibleDecomposition. These methods search for positive dimensional components starting at the StartDimension and then considering all the subsequent lower dimensions.

The default value for StartDimension is the number of variables in the system minus one.

If the user has a good idea about the top dimension, using a smaller StartDimension than the default will reduce the computational time.

Functions with optional argument named StartDimension :

For the programmer

The object StartDimension is a symbol.
