# ApCoCoA-1:NC.MB

## NC.MB

Macaulay basis of K-algebra with respect to Ordering.

### Syntax

```NC.MB(Gb:LIST):LIST
NC.MB(Gb:LIST, DegreeBound: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 indeterminates) X and ordering through the functions NC.SetFp(Prime), NC.SetX(X) and NC.SetOrdering(Ordering), 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 Gb: a LIST of non-zero polynomials in K<X> which is a Groebner basis of (two-sided) ideal generated by Gb. Each polynomial is represented as a LIST of LISTs, which are pairs of form [C, W] where C is a coefficient and W is a word (or term). Each term is represented as a STRING. For example, xy^2x is represented as "xyyx", unit is represented as an empty string "". Then, polynomial F=xy-y+1 is represented as F:=[[1,"xy"], [-1, "y"], [1,""]]. 0 polynomial is represented as an empty LIST [].

• @param DegreeBound: (optional) a positive integer which is a degree bound of Hilbert function.

• @return: a LIST of terms which form the Macaulay basis of K<X>/(Gb) with respect to Ordering.

#### Example

```NC.SetX(<quotes>xyzt</quotes>);
NC.SetOrdering(<quotes>LLEX</quotes>);
Gb:= [[[1, <quotes>yt</quotes>], [-1, <quotes>ty</quotes>]], [[1, <quotes>xt</quotes>], [-1, <quotes>tx</quotes>]], [[1, <quotes>xy</quotes>], [-1, <quotes>ty</quotes>]], [[1, <quotes>xx</quotes>], [-1, <quotes>yx</quotes>]],
[[1, <quotes>tyy</quotes>], [-1, <quotes>tty</quotes>]], [[1, <quotes>yyx</quotes>], [-1, <quotes>tyx</quotes>]]];
NC.MB(Gb,3);

[[<quotes></quotes>], [<quotes>t</quotes>, <quotes>z</quotes>, <quotes>y</quotes>, <quotes>x</quotes>], [<quotes>tt</quotes>, <quotes>tz</quotes>, <quotes>ty</quotes>, <quotes>tx</quotes>, <quotes>zt</quotes>, <quotes>zz</quotes>, <quotes>zy</quotes>, <quotes>zx</quotes>, <quotes>yz</quotes>, <quotes>yy</quotes>, <quotes>yx</quotes>, <quotes>xz</quotes>],
