MultiplicitySequence :: monAnalyticSpread

monAnalyticSpread -- the analytic spread of a monomial ideal

Synopsis

Description

Given a monomial ideal I, this function computes the analytic spread of I as one more than the maximal dimension of a bounded facet of its Newton polyhedron.

i1 : R = QQ[x,y]

o1 = R

o1 : PolynomialRing
i2 : I = ideal"x2,xy,y3"

             2        3
o2 = ideal (x , x*y, y )

o2 : Ideal of R
i3 : elapsedTime monAnalyticSpread I
 -- 0.0973173 seconds elapsed

o3 = 2
