SchurRings :: EHPVariables

EHPVariables -- Specifies sequence of symbols representing e-, h-, and p-functions

Description

This is an optional argument for the constructor of a Symmetric or Schur ring. It indicates the symbols to be used to denote e-, h-, and p-functions in the associated Symmetric ring. The default values are (e,h,p).

i1 : S = schurRing(QQ,s,4,EHPVariables => (getSymbol"a",getSymbol"b",getSymbol"c"));
i2 : R = symmetricRing S

o2 = R

o2 : PolynomialRing
i3 : epol = toE s_{2,2,2}
