intersectionValRings -- intersection of ring of valuations



A discrete monomial valuation v on R=K[X_1,\ldots,X_n] is determined by the values v(X_j) of the indeterminates. This function computes the subalgebra S=\{f\in R: v_i(f)\geq 0, i=1,\ldots,r\} that is the intersection of the valuation rings of the given valuations v_1, \ldots,v_r, i.e. it consists of all elements of R that have a nonnegative value for all r valuations. It takes as input the matrix V=(v_i(X_j)) whose rows correspond to the values of the indeterminates.

This method can be used with the options allComputations and grading.
i1 : R=QQ[x,y,z,w];
i2 : V0=matrix({{0,1,2,3},{-1,1,2,1}});
