Markov :: markovRing

markovRing -- ring of probability distributions on several discrete random variables

Synopsis

Description

i1 : R = markovRing(2,3,4,5);
i2 : numgens R

o2 = 120
i3 : R_0, R_1, R_119

o3 = (p       , p       , p       )
       1,1,1,1   1,1,1,2   2,3,4,5

o3 : Sequence
i4 : coefficientRing R

o4 = QQ

o4 : Ring

Caveat

Currently, the user has no choice about the names of the variables. Also, the base field is set to be QQ, without option of changing it. These will hopefully change in a later version.
