This package includes routines to check whether an ideal is geometrically vertex decomposable.
Geometrically vertex decomposable ideals can be viewed as a generalization of the properties of the Stanley-Reisner ideal of a vertex decomposable simplicial complex. This family of ideals is based upon the geometric vertex decomposition property defined by Knutson, Miller, and Yong [KMY]. Klein and Rajchgot then gave a recursive definition for geometrically vertex decomposable ideals in [KR] using this notion.
An unmixed ideal $I$ in a polynomial ring $R$ is geometrically vertex decomposable if it is the zero ideal, the unit ideal, an ideal generated by indeterminates, or if there is a indeterminate $y$ of $R$ such that two ideals $C_{y,I}$ and $N_{y,I}$ constructed from $I$ are both geometrically vertex decomposable. For the complete definition, see isGVD.
Observe that a geometrically vertex decomposable ideal is recursively defined. The complexity of verifying that an ideal is geometrically vertex decomposable will increase as the number of indeterminates appearing in the ideal increases.
