OldPolyhedra :: ambDim

ambDim -- ambient dimension of a Polyhedron, Cone or Fan

Synopsis

Description

ambDim returns the dimension of the ambient space either of the Polyhedron P, of the Cone C or the Fan F.

i1 : P = convexHull matrix{{1,0},{0,1}}

o1 = {ambient dimension => 2           }
      dimension of lineality space => 0
      dimension of polyhedron => 1
      number of facets => 2
      number of rays => 0
      number of vertices => 2

o1 : Polyhedron
i2 : ambDim P

o2 = 2
