Cremona :: super(RationalMap)

super(RationalMap) -- get the rational map whose target is a projective space

Synopsis

Description

So that, for instance, if phi is a dominant map, then the code rationalMap(super phi,Dominant=>true) yields a map isomorphic to phi.

i1 : phi = specialQuadraticTransformation 7;

o1 : RationalMap (quadratic birational map from PP^8 to 8-dimensional subvariety of PP^10)
i2 : phi' = super phi;

o2 : RationalMap (quadratic rational map from PP^8 to PP^10)
i3 : describe phi
