OldPolyhedra :: maxFace

maxFace -- computes the face of a Polyhedron or Cone where a weight attains its maximum

Synopsis

Description

maxFace computes the face of the given Polyhedron P or Cone C where w attains its maximum.

i1 : P = crossPolytope 3

o1 = {ambient dimension => 3           }
      dimension of lineality space => 0
      dimension of polyhedron => 3
      number of facets => 8
      number of rays => 0
      number of vertices => 6

o1 : Polyhedron
i2 : w = matrix {{1},{-1},{0}}

o2 = | 1  |
     | -1 |
     | 0  |
