complex -- Make a complex.

Synopsis

Description

Make a complex from a list of faces and/or facets.

This is mostly used internally but may be occasionally useful for the end user.

i1 : R=QQ[x_0..x_5]

o1 = R

o1 : PolynomialRing
i2 : C=boundaryCyclicPolytope(3,R)

o2 = 2: x x x  x x x  x x x  x x x  x x x  x x x  x x x  x x x

o2 : complex of dim 2 embedded in dim 5 (printing facets)
     equidimensional, simplicial, F-vector {1, 6, 12, 8, 0, 0, 0}, Euler = 1

o4 : complex of dim 2 embedded in dim 5 (printing facets)
     equidimensional, simplicial, F-vector {1, 6, 12, 8, 0, 0, 0}, Euler = 1
i5 : C==C1

o5 = true

Caveat

If both the list of faces and facets is specified there is no consistency check.
