User documentation

The functions here are for computing generators of the vanishing ideal of a set of points (i.e. all polynomials which vanish at all of the points).

The functions expect two parameters: a polynomial ring P, and a set of points pts. The coordinates of the points must reside in the coefficient ring of P. The points are represented as a matrix: each point corresponds to a row.


The main functions available are:

Impl is simple/clean rather than fast.

There was a minor complication to handle the case where the dim of the space in which the points live is less than the number of indets in the polyring.

Bugs, shortcomings and other ideas

2013-01-21 there is only a generic impl (which is simple but inefficient).

The name BM is too short?
