# multiReesIdeal(...,MinimalGenerators=>...) -- Whether the saturation step returns minimal generators

## Synopsis

• Usage:
multiReesIdeal(..., MinimalGenerators => X)
mixedMultiplicity(..., MinimalGenerators => X)
mixedVolume(..., MinimalGenerators => X)
secMilnorNumbers(..., MinimalGenerators => X)

## Description

Here X is of type boolean. Each of these functions involves the computation of a Rees ideal, which involves a saturation step. This optional argument determines whether or not the output of the saturation step will be forced to have a minmimal generating set. This is described in the documentation node for saturate.

## Further information

• Default value: true
• Function: multiReesIdeal -- Compute the defining ideal of multi-Rees algebra of ideals
• Option key: MinimalGenerators -- whether to compute minimal generators and return a trimmed set of generators
