SchurRings :: SVariable

SVariable -- Specifies symbol representing s-functions

Description

This is an optional argument for the constructor of a Symmetric ring. It indicates the symbol to be used to denote s-functions in the associated Schur ring. The default value is s.

i1 : R = symmetricRing(QQ,5,SVariable => getSymbol"s");
i2 : S = schurRing R

o2 = S

o2 : SchurRing
i3 : s_2^2

o3 = s  + s    + s
      4    3,1    2,2

o3 : S
