Divisor :: coefficient(BasicList,BasicDivisor)

coefficient(BasicList,BasicDivisor) -- get the coefficient of an ideal for a fixed divisor

Synopsis

Description

This function returns the coefficient of $D$ along the prime divisor generated by $L$ assuming $L$ is the ordered list of an element

i1 : R = QQ[x,y,u,v]/ideal(x*y-u*v);
i2 : E = divisor(x*u)

o2 = Div(v, x) + Div(u, y) + 2*Div(u, x)

o2 : WeilDivisor on R
i3 : coefficient({u, x}, E)

o3 = 2
i4 : coefficient({x, u}, E)

o4 = 0
