# ApCoCoA-1:NC.GB

## NC.GB

Enumerate a (partial) Groebner basis of a finitely generated two-sided ideal over a free monoid ring (using the Buchberger procedure).

### Syntax

NC.GB(G:LIST):LIST NC.GB(G:LIST, DegreeBound:INT, LoopBound:INT, Flag:INT):LIST

### Description

*Please note:* The function(s) explained on this page is/are using the *ApCoCoAServer*. You will have to start the ApCoCoAServer in order to use it/them.

Please set ring environment *coefficient field* `K`, *alphabet* (or set of indeterminates) `X` and *ordering* via the functions NC.SetFp, NC.SetX and NC.SetOrdering, respectively, before calling the function. Default coefficient field is `Q`. Default ordering is length-lexicographic ordering ("LLEX"). For more information, please check the relevant functions.

@param

*G*: a LIST of non-zero polynomials generating a two-sided ideal in`K<X>`. Each polynomial is represented as a LIST of monomials, which are pairs of the form [C, W] where W is a word in`<X>`and C is the coefficient of W. For example, the polynomial`F=xy-y+1`is represented as F:=[[1,"xy"], [-1, "y"], [1,""]].

About the optional parameters: for most cases we do not know whether or not there exists a finite Groebner basis. Thue, the function has three optional parameters to interrupt the enumerating procedure. Note that at the moment *all* of the following three optional parameters must be used at the same time.

@param

*DegreeBound:*a positive integer which gives a degree bound during the enumerating procedure. When the degree of the normal remainder of some`S-polynomial`reaches DegreeBound, the function stops the loop and returns a partial Groebner basis.@param

*LoopBound:*a positive integer which gives a bound for the main loop of the enumerating procedure. When it runs through the main loop LoopBound times, the function stops and returns a partial Groebner basis.@param

*Flag:*a non-negative integer which is a multi-switch for the output of ApCoCoAServer. If Flag=0, the server prints nothing on the screen. If Flag=1, the server prints basic information on the enumerating procedure, such as the number of main loop that has been proceeded, the number of elements in partial Groebner basis, the number of unselected obstructions; the total number of obstructions, the number of selected obstructions, and the number of unnecessary obstructions. If Flag=2, beside the information as FLAG=1, the server also displays explicitly the elements in paritial Groebner basis and current selected`S-polynonial`. Note that the initial idea of using Flag is to trace and debug the enumerating procedure.@return: a LIST of polynomials, which is a Groebner basis of the two-sided ideal generated by

`G`if (1) there exists a finite Groebner basis and (2) the enumerating procedure doesn't terminate due to reaching`DegreeBound`or`LoopBound`, and is a partial Groebner basis otherwise.
