segreClass -- Compute a motivic Segre class

Synopsis

Description

This function computes a motivic Segre class with label i (a string made of characters from "0" to "d" where d is the number of steps of the flag variety) or list of labels I in a K-theory ring A previously built using setupCotangent. If A is not specified, then the ring that was defined last is used.

i1 : (A,B,FF,I)=setupCotangent(1,3,Presentation=>Borel,Ktheory=>true,Equivariant=>false);

If a list of labels I is used, then a matrix of classes is returned.

sClass differs from segreClass by multiplication by a power of the equivariant parameter $q$. The primed classes are dual classes.

For the programmer

The object segreClass is a method function with options.
