# ApCoCoA-1:NC.MB

## NC.MB

Enumerate a Macaulay basis of a `K`-algebra.

### 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 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

*Gb:*a LIST of non-zero polynomials in`K<X>`which is a Groebner basis (w.r.t. a`length compatible`admissible ordering, say`Ordering`) of the two-sided ideal generated by Gb. 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,""]].*Warning:*users should take responsibility to make sure that Gb is indeed a Groebner basis w.r.t.`Ordering`! In the case that Gb is a partical Groebner basis, the function enumerates a pseudo basis.@param

*DegreeBound:*(optional) a positive integer which is a degree bound of Hilbert funtion.*Note that*we set`DegreeBound=32`by default. Thus to compute the whole Macaulay basis, it is necessary to set`DegreeBound`to a larger enough number.@return: a LIST of terms, which forms the Macaulay basis of the K-algebra

`K<X>/(Gb)`w.r.t.`Ordering`.
