Cremona :: forceImage

forceImage -- declare which is the image of a rational map

Synopsis

Description

This method allows to inform the system about the image of a given rational map without performing any computation. In particular, this can be used to declare that a rational map is dominant.

i1 : P6 = QQ[t_0..t_6]; X = minors(3,matrix{{t_0..t_4},{t_1..t_5},{t_2..t_6}});

o2 : Ideal of P6
i3 : Phi = rationalMap(X,Dominant=>2);

o3 : RationalMap (cubic rational map from PP^6 to 6-dimensional subvariety of PP^9)
i4 : time forceImage(Phi,ideal 0_(target Phi))
     -- used 0.000462647 seconds
i5 : Phi;

o5 : RationalMap (cubic dominant rational map from PP^6 to 6-dimensional subvariety of PP^9)

Caveat

If the declaration is false, nonsensical answers may result.
