## Description

The irreducible torus-invariant divisors on a normal toric variety correspond to the rays in the associated fan. In this package, the rays are ordered and indexed by the nonnegative integers. Given a normal toric variety and nonnegative integer, this method returns the corresponding irreducible torus-invariant divisor. The most convenient way to make a general torus-invariant Weil divisor is to simply write the appropriate linear combination of these torus-invariant Weil divisors.

There are three irreducible torus-invariant divisors on the projective plane.

 i1 : PP2 = toricProjectiveSpace 2; i2 : PP2_0 o2 = PP2 0 o2 : ToricDivisor on PP2 i3 : PP2_1 o3 = PP2 1 o3 : ToricDivisor on PP2 i4 : PP2_2 o4 = PP2 2 o4 : ToricDivisor on PP2 i5 : assert (- PP2_0 - PP2_1 - PP2_2 === toricDivisor PP2)

A torus-invariant Weil divisor is irreducible if and only if its support has a single element.
