the affine Hilbert function
AffHilbertFn(R: RING): TAGGED("$hp.Hilbert")
AffHilbertFn(R: RING, N: INT): INT
The first form of this function computes the affine Hilbert function for R.
The second form computes the N-th value of the affine Hilbert function. The
weights of the indeterminates of R must all be 1. For repeated
evaluations of the Hilbert function, use
in order to speed up execution.
The coefficient ring must be a field.
