The programs generally use lists. These are objects (numbers,
variables, polynomials, etc.) written in the form
Lists are like an ordered set.
In the Grobner package and in my programs, an ideal is defined to
be a list of polynomials. This list is usually refered to as the
basis. The Grobner package calculates a standard form of this basis
with regard to the variables. The variables must also be given as a
list. To calculate a Grobner basis, use the function
gbasis(basis,vars). If you have a Grobner basis, you may
write a polynomial on its standard for using
The syntax in my programs are the same as above. It should be
pointed out that if you wish to view matrices,
should be used. Otherwise, Maple only does formal calculations.
