# HowTo:Contribute an ApCoCoA-2 Package

This page describes how to contribute a package to ApCoCoA. There are three main steps for contributing an ApCoCoA Package:

- Implementing the package functions, see HowTo:Implement an ApCoCoA-2 Package,
- Send your package to one of our Team members,
- Describe your package in this Wiki, see HowTo:Document an ApCoCoA-2 Package.

## Example for an ApCoCoA package

This article is about a function from ApCoCoA-2. If you are looking for the ApCoCoA-1 version of it, see ApCoCoA-1:SB.Sagbi and ApCoCoA-1:SB.ReducedSagbi. |

## SB.SAGBI

Computes a finite SAGBI-basis of a subalgebra if existing.

### Syntax

SB.SAGBI(G:LIST of POLY):LIST of POLY

### Description

This function computes a finite SAGBI-basis of a subalgebra `S` generated by the polynomials of the list `G`, if a finite SAGBI-basis of `S` is existing. Then a list of polynomials is returned which form a SAGBI-basis of `S`. Otherwise the computation runs until it is interrupted.

@param

*G*A list of polynomials which generates a subalgebra.@return A list of polynomials which form a finite SAGBI-basis of the subalgebra generated by

`G`.

#### Example

Use QQ[x,y,z], DegRevLex; S := SB.SAGBI([x^2 -z^2, x*y +z^2, y^2 -2*z^2]); indent(S); -- [ -- y^2 -2*z^2, -- x*y +z^2, -- x^2 -z^2, -- x^2*z^2 +x*y*z^2 +(1/2)*y^2*z^2 +(-1/2)*z^4 -- ]
