Points :: expectedBetti

expectedBetti -- The betti table of r points in Pn according to the minimal resolution conjecture

Synopsis

Description

The output is the smallest conceivable betti table for a set of r points in P^n, which is predicted (incorrectly) by the minimal resolution conjecture.

o1 : BettiTally

Caveat

The MRC is false, so these are sometimes not the actual betti numbers.

For the programmer

The object expectedBetti is a function closure.
