## NCo.Deg

The standard degree of a polynomial in a free monoid ring.

### Syntax

NCo.Deg(F:LIST):INT

### Description

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

@param

*F*: a polynomial in`K<X>`. Each polynomial is represented as a LIST of monomials, which are LISTs 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,""]]. The zero polynomial`0`is represented as the empty LIST [].@return: an INT which represents the standard degree of F. If F=0, the function returns

`0`.

#### Example

NCo.SetX(<quotes>abc</quotes>); F:=[[1,<quotes>ab</quotes>],[2,<quotes>aa</quotes>],[3,<quotes>bb</quotes>],[4,<quotes>bab</quotes>]]; NCo.Deg(F); 3 ------------------------------- NCo.Deg([]); -- 0 polynomial 0 -------------------------------
