randomRationalCurve(d,e,F)
randomRationalCurve(d,e)
Given two positive integers d,e and a ring F, randomRationalCurve 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 two homogeneous polynomials of degree d and three homogeneous polynomials of degree three in $F[s,t]$ defining maps $\PP^1\to\PP^1$ and $\PP^1\to\PP^2$, 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 bidegree (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.


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 randomRationalCurve is a method function.
