Binomials :: ReturnCellVars

ReturnCellVars -- return the cellular variables

Description

The cellular variables of a binomial ideal are the variables which are non-zerodivisors module that ideal. If this option is set to 'true' then binomialCellularDecomposition will return the set of variables for each of its outputs
i1 : R = QQ[x,y,z]

o1 = R

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

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