facets -- The maximal faces of a complex.

Synopsis

Description

The maximal faces of C arranged in a list of lists with ascending dimension of the facets.

i1 : R=QQ[x_0..x_5]

o1 = R

o1 : PolynomialRing
i2 : C=fullCyclicPolytope(3,R)

o2 = 3: x x x x x x  
         0 1 2 3 4 5

o2 : complex of dim 3 embedded in dim 3 (printing facets)
     equidimensional, non-simplicial, F-vector {1, 6, 12, 8, 1}, Euler = 0
i3 : facets C

o3 = {{}, {}, {}, {}, {x x x x x x }}
                        0 1 2 3 4 5
