cellComplex -- create a cell complex



The method cellComplex takes a ring R and a list of maximal cells and constructs the corresponding cell complex. While the intent is for the supplied cells to be maximal, including non-maximal cells is not forbidden and will generate valid cell complexes.

The ring R is the ring over which the labels are interpreted. This function does not directly check that the labels are in the correct ring.

i1 : c = newCell {}

o1 = Cell of dimension 0 with label 1

o1 : Cell
i2 : C = cellComplex(QQ,{c});
i3 : R = QQ[x,y];
i4 : C = cellComplex(R,{c});
