Dtransposition -- standard transposition for Weyl algebra

Synopsis

• Usage:
Dtransposition A
• Inputs:
• A, , a matrix, function, ideal, or chain complex over the Weyl algebra
• Outputs:
• , the standard transpose of A as a matrix, function, ideal, or chain complex over the Weyl algebra

Description

The standard transposition is the involution of the Weyl algebra which sends xadb to (-d)bxa. It provides the equivalence in the Weyl algebra between left and right D-modules.

Caveat

The standard transposition of a left ideal should be a right ideal, however M2 currently doesn't support right modules. Thus the output is left ideal generated by the transposition of the previous generators.
