frobby: Computations on monomial ideals#
The software package Frobby provides a number of computations on monomial ideals. The current main feature is the socle of a monomial ideal, which is largely equivalent to computing the maximal standard monomials, the Alexander dual or the irreducible decomposition.
Operations on monomial ideals are much faster than algorithms designed for ideals in general, which is what makes a specialized library for these operations on monomial ideals useful.
GPL version 2.0 or later
Special Update/Build instructions#
Download Frobby at www.broune.com/ and then type “make spkg VER=blah” which wil create an spkg named frobby-VER.spkg in bin/. The files related to doing this is in the sage/ sub-directory of the Frobby source distribution.
Equivalent System Packages#
However, these system packages will not be used for building Sage because spkg-configure.m4 has not been written for this package; see trac ticket #27330
