QthPower :: QthPower



This package computes the integral closure of type I affine domains and some slightly more general integral extensions of polynomial rings P using the qth-power algorithm from D.A.Leonard, Finding the missing functions for one-point AG codes, IEEE Trans. Inform.Theory, 47(6), 2001, pp. 2566-3573, D.A.Leonard and R.Pellikaan, Integral closures and weight functions over finite fields, Finite Fields and Their Applications 9(4), 2003, pp. 479-504, D.A.Leonard, A weighted module view of integral closures of affine domains of type I, Advances in Mathematics of Communication 3(1), 2009, pp. 1-11. ({ t icFracP} in the { t IntegralClosure} package of { t Macaulay2} and { t normalP} in { t Singular}'s { t normal} package are attempts to generalize this to generic input by ignoring all of the structure that is required by this package.) Also this package contains the extension to examples over the rationals; which, in turn, allows for quicker answers over ZZ/q for most large q, which can be produced if desired merely by changing the coefficient ring from QQ to ZZ/q.
