polytopes_db: Databases of 2- and 3-dimensional reflexive polytopes¶
This package includes lists of 2- and 3-dimensional reflexive polytopes.
The list of polygons is quite easy to get and it has been known for a while. The list of 3-polytopes was originally obtained by Maximilian Kreuzer and Harald Skarke using their software PALP, which is included into the standard distribution of Sage. To work with lattice and reflexive polytopes from Sage you can use sage.geometry.lattice_polytope module, which relies on PALP for some of its functionality. To get access to the databases of this package, use ReflexivePolytope and ReflexivePolytopes commands.
Equivalent System Packages¶
$ sudo pacman -S sagemath-polytopes-db
$ conda install sagemath-polytopes-db
However, these system packages will not be used for building Sage because spkg-configure.m4 has not been written for this package; see https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/27330
