# ApCoCoA-1:NC.MB

## NC.MB

Enumerate a Macaulay's basis of a finitely generated `K`-algebra.

Given a two-sided ideal `I` in a non-commutative polynomial ring `P` over `K`, we can consider the `K`-algebra `P/I` as a `K`-vector space. Moreover, let `G` be a Groebner basis of `I`, and let `B` be the set of all words which are not a multiple of any word in the leading word set `LW{G}`. Then the residue class of the words in `B` form a `K`-basis, called a *Macaulay's basis*, of `P/I`. For the sake of computing the values of the Hilbert function (see NC.HF) of `P/I`, in this function we require that `G` has to be a Groebner basis with respect to a length compatible word ordering (see NC.SetOrdering).

### Syntax

NC.MB(G:LIST[, DB: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 non-commutative polynomial ring (via the command Use) and word ordering (via the function NC.SetOrdering) before calling this function. The default word ordering is the length-lexicographic ordering ("LLEX"). For more information, please check the relevant commands and functions.

@param

*G:*a LIST of non-zero non-commutative polynomials, which form a Groebner basis with respect to a length compatible word ordering. Each polynomial is represented as a LIST of LISTs, and each element in every inner LIST involves only one indeterminate or none (a constant). For example, the polynomial`f=2x[2]y[1]x[2]^2-9y[2]x[1]^2x[2]^3+5`is represented as F:=[[2x[1],y[1],x[2]^2], [-9y[2],x[1]^2,x[2]^3], [5]]. The zero polynomial`0`is represented as the empty LIST [].*Warning:*users should take responsibility to ensure that G is indeed a Groebner basis with respect to a length compatible word ordering!@return: a LIST of words forming a Macaulay's basis of the K-algebra

`P/<G>`.

Optional parameter:

@param

*DB:*a positive INT, which is a degree bound of the lengths of words.*Note that*we set DB=32 by default. Thus, in the case that`P/<G>`has a finite Macaulay's basis, it is necessary to set DB to a large enough INT in order to compute the whole Macaulay's basis.
