# independenceComplex(Matroid) -- independence complex of matroid

## Description

The independence complex of a matroid is the simplicial complex associated (via the Stanley-Reisner correspondence) to the circuit ideal of the matroid (which is a squarefree monomial ideal). This method uses the SimplicialComplexes package to return an object of type SimplicialComplex.
