gfanMixedVolume -- mixed volume of a list of polynomials



The method outputs mixed volume for the Newton polytopes associated to the input polynomials. The optional argument j allows the user to set the number of threads to be used; by default, one thread is used.

i1 : QQ[x1,x2,x3]

o1 = QQ[x1, x2, x3]

o1 : PolynomialRing
i2 : gfanMixedVolume({x1+x2+x3,x1*x2+x2*x3+x3*x1,x1*x2*x3-1})

o2 = 6

gfan Documentation This program computes the mixed volume of the Newton polytopes of a list of polynomials. The ring is specified on the input. After this follows the list of polynomials.Options:--vectorinput: Read in a list of point configurations instead of a polynomial ring and a list of polynomials.--cyclic value: Use cyclic-n example instead of reading input.--noon value: Use Noonburg-n example instead of reading input.--chandra value: Use Chandrasekhar-n example instead of reading input.--katsura value: Use Katsura-n example instead of reading input.--gaukwa value: Use Gaukwa-n example instead of reading input.--eco value: Use Eco-n example instead of reading input.-j value: Number of threads
