noethOpsFromComponents -- merge Noetherian operators for non-primary ideals

Synopsis

Description

Let $I$ be an unmixed ideal in a polynomial ring $R = K[x_1, ..., x_n]$, with primary decomposition $I = Q_1 \cap ... \cap Q_s$, where $Q_i$ is $P_i$-primary. If $N_i$ is a set of Noetherian operators for $Q_i$, then one can construct a set of differential operators $N$ for $I$ which satisfies the Noetherian operator condition: given $f \in R$, one has $f \in I$ iff $D(f) \in\sqrt{I}$ for all $D \in N$.

i1 : R = QQ[x,y,t]

o1 = R

o1 : PolynomialRing
i2 : I = intersect(ideal((y+t)^2), ideal(x^2, y^2 - t*x))

o2 = ideal (y  - x*y t + 2y t - 2x*y*t  + y t  - x*t , x y  + 2x y*t + x t )

o2 : Ideal of R
i3 : radI = radical I

             2
o3 = ideal (y  + y*t, x*y + x*t)

o3 : Ideal of R
i4 : primes = associatedPrimes I

o4 = {ideal(y + t), ideal (y, x)}

o4 : List
i5 : L = primes / (P -> (P, noetherianOperators(I, P)))

                                                          2             3
o5 = {(ideal(y + t), {1, dy}), (ideal (y, x), {1, dy, t*dy  + 2*dx, t*dy  +
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     6*dx*dy})}

o5 : List
i6 : N = noethOpsFromComponents L

                     2   2                        2   3
o6 = {1, dy, (y*t + t )dy  + (2y + 2t)dx, (y*t + t )dy  + (6y + 6t)dx*dy}

o6 : List
i7 : all(flatten table(N, I_*, (D, f) -> (D f) % radI == 0), identity)

o7 = true

Note that this construction justifies the focus of Noetherian operators on the case that the ideal I is primary: in order to get a useful membership test for a non-primary (but still unmixed) ideal, it suffices to compute Noetherian operators on each primary component, and then combine them in the way given above.
