Synopsis

Description

This function returns true if the divisor is very ample, otherwise it returns false. It works by calling isEmbedding from the RationalMaps package. If Verbose is set to true, it will print Verbose output from isEmbedding.

i1 : R = QQ[x, y, z]/ideal(x^3 + y^3 - z^3);
i2 : D = divisor(ideal(x, y-z));

o2 : WeilDivisor on R
i3 : isVeryAmple(D)

o3 = false
i4 : isVeryAmple(2*D)

o4 = false
i5 : isVeryAmple(3*D)

o5 = true

The output value of this function is stored in the divisor's cache.
