# normalCone(Polyhedron,Polyhedron) -- computes the normal cone of a face of a polyhedron

## Description

The normal cone of a face Q of a polyhedron P is the cone in the normal fan (see normalFan) that corresponds to this face. This is the cone of all vectors attaining their maximum on this face.
