Given two positive integers d,e and a ring F, randomMonomialCurve returns the ideal of a random curve in $\PP^1\times\PP^2$ of degree (d,e) defined over the base ring F.
This is done by randomly generating a monomial $m$ of degree $e$ in $F[s,t]$, which is not $s^e$ or $t^e$. This allows one to define two maps $\PP^1\to\PP^1$ and $\PP^1\to\PP^2$ given by {s^d,t^d} and {s^e,m,t^e}, respectively. The graph of the product of these two maps in $\PP^1\times(\PP^1\times\PP^2)$ is computed, from which a curve of bi-degree (d,e) in $\PP^1\times\PP^2$ over F is obtained by saturating and then eliminating.
If no base ring is specified, the computations are performed over ZZ/101.
i1 : randomMonomialCurve(2,3,QQ); o1 : Ideal of QQ[x ..x , x ..x ] 0,0 0,1 1,0 1,2 |
This creates a ring $F[x_{0,0},x_{0,1},x_{1,0},x_{1,1},x_{1,2}]$ in which the resulting ideal is defined.
The object randomMonomialCurve is a method function.
