Any sheaf on P1 is the direct sum of line bundles and cyclic skyscraper sheaves represented by modules of the form k[x,y]/(l^m) where l is an kirreducible homogeneous polynomial and m is a nonnegative integer. The routine "analyze" computes the twists and the annihilators l^m that appear in the decomposition, starting from a coherent sheaf on P1 or a graded module over a polynomial ring on 2 variables.







The script uses a linear nonzerodivisor, which would not exist over a finite field in the case where every point of P1 is the support of one of the skyscraper components.
