ApCoCoALib is a GPL'ed c++ library, extending the functionality of CoCoALib. The library contains symbolic and numeric methods and is maintained and extended by the ApCoCoA Team.

To build ApCoCoALib from source, please follow the compilation instructions.


ApCoCoALib depends on the GMP-lib and CoCoALib.

Besides these, there are some optional dependencies. You do not need them to use ApCoCoALib, but without, some parts if ApCoCoALib will not work, or work slower or with lesse features.

For example the methods around approximate banishing ideals and the numerical Buchberger-Moeller algorithm need numerical libraries present. These are Blas and Lapack, which can be most easily installed via atlas if you are using Linux/Unix or Windows. In case you use Mac OS X there is the accelerate framework and you have a working version of all libraries needed.

Another optional dependency is linbox, which can improve FGLM und border basis techniques.
