- class sage.schemes.generic.hypersurface.AffineHypersurface(poly, ambient=None)#
Bases:
sage.schemes.affine.affine_subscheme.AlgebraicScheme_subscheme_affine
The affine hypersurface defined by the given polynomial.
EXAMPLES:
sage: A.<x, y, z> = AffineSpace(ZZ, 3) sage: AffineHypersurface(x*y-z^3, A) Affine hypersurface defined by -z^3 + x*y in Affine Space of dimension 3 over Integer Ring
sage: A.<x, y, z> = QQ[] sage: AffineHypersurface(x*y-z^3) Affine hypersurface defined by -z^3 + x*y in Affine Space of dimension 3 over Rational Field
- defining_polynomial()#
Return the polynomial equation that cuts out this affine hypersurface.
EXAMPLES:
sage: R.<x, y, z> = ZZ[] sage: H = AffineHypersurface(x*z+y^2) sage: H.defining_polynomial() y^2 + x*z
- class sage.schemes.generic.hypersurface.ProjectiveHypersurface(poly, ambient=None)#
Bases:
sage.schemes.projective.projective_subscheme.AlgebraicScheme_subscheme_projective
The projective hypersurface defined by the given polynomial.
EXAMPLES:
sage: P.<x, y, z> = ProjectiveSpace(ZZ, 2) sage: ProjectiveHypersurface(x-y, P) Projective hypersurface defined by x - y in Projective Space of dimension 2 over Integer Ring
sage: R.<x, y, z> = QQ[] sage: ProjectiveHypersurface(x-y) Projective hypersurface defined by x - y in Projective Space of dimension 2 over Rational Field
- defining_polynomial()#
Return the polynomial equation that cuts out this projective hypersurface.
EXAMPLES:
sage: R.<x, y, z> = ZZ[] sage: H = ProjectiveHypersurface(x*z+y^2) sage: H.defining_polynomial() y^2 + x*z
- sage.schemes.generic.hypersurface.is_Hypersurface(self)#
Return True if self is a hypersurface, i.e. an object of the type ProjectiveHypersurface or AffineHypersurface.
EXAMPLES:
sage: from sage.schemes.generic.hypersurface import is_Hypersurface sage: R.<x, y, z> = ZZ[] sage: H = ProjectiveHypersurface(x*z+y^2) sage: is_Hypersurface(H) True
sage: H = AffineHypersurface(x*z+y^2) sage: is_Hypersurface(H) True
sage: H = ProjectiveSpace(QQ, 5) sage: is_Hypersurface(H) False
