components(NumericalVariety) -- list components of a numerical variety

Synopsis

Description

Returns a list of components of a numerical variety. If a (an integer) and/or b (an integer or infinity) are specified, then components of dimension a (respectively, components of dimension at least a and at most b) are returned.

i1 : R = CC[x,y]; I = ideal((x^2+y^2+2)*x,(x^2+y^2+2)*y);

i3 : w1 := witnessSet(I , ideal(x-y), {point {{0.999999*ii,0.999999*ii}}, point {{-1.000001*ii,-1.000001*ii}}} )
