MonomialAlgebras :: isSeminormalMA

isSeminormalMA -- Test whether a simplicial monomial algebra is seminormal.

Synopsis

Description

Test whether the simplicial monomial algebra K[B] is seminormal.

Note that this condition does not depend on K.

For the definition of seminormal see:

Richard G. Swan: On Seminormality, J. Algebra 67, no. 1 (1980), 210-229.
