12 Forman's discrete Morse theory

In this chapter a framework is provided to use Forman's discrete Morse theory [For95] within simpcomp. See Section 2.6 for a brief introduction.

Note: this is not to be confused with Banchoff and Kühnel's theory of regular simplexwise linear functions which is described in Chapter 11.

Computes the homology groups of a given simplicial complex complex using SCMorseRandom (12.1-6) to obtain a Morse function and SmithNormalFormIntegerMat. Use SCHomologyEx (12.1-13) to use alternative methods to compute discrete Morse functions (such as SCMorseEngstroem (12.1-5), or SCMorseUST (12.1-10)) or the Smith normal form.

The output is a list of homology groups of the form [H_0,....,H_d], where d is the dimension of complex. The format of the homology groups H_i is given in terms of their maximal cyclic subgroups, i.e. a homology group H_i≅ Z^f + Z / t_1 Z × dots × Z / t_n Z is returned in form of a list [ f, [t_1,...,t_n] ], where f is the (integer) free part of H_i and t_i denotes the torsion parts of H_i ordered in weakly increasing size.

12.1-14 SCIsSimplyConnected
 ‣ SCIsSimplyConnected( c ) ( function )

Returns: a boolean value upon success, fail otherweise.

Computes if the SCSimplicialComplex object c is simply connected. The algorithm is a heuristic method and is described in [PS15]. Internally calls SCIsSimplyConnectedEx (12.1-15).

 gap> rp2:=SCSurface(1,false);;
gap> SCIsSimplyConnected(rp2);

gap> SCIsSimplyConnected(c);

12.1-15 SCIsSimplyConnectedEx
 ‣ SCIsSimplyConnectedEx( c[, top, tries] ) ( function )

Returns: a boolean value upon success, fail otherweise.

Computes if the SCSimplicialComplex object c is simply connected. The optional boolean argument top determines whether a spanning graph in the dual or the primal graph of c will be used for a collapsing sequence. The optional positive integer argument tries determines the number of times the algorithm will try to find a collapsing sequence. The algorithm is a heuristic method and is described in [PS15].

12.1-16 SCIsSphere
 ‣ SCIsSphere( c ) ( function )

Returns: a boolean value upon success, fail otherweise.

Determines whether the SCSimplicialComplex object c is a topological sphere. In dimension ≠ 4 the algorithm determines whether c is PL-homeomorphic to the standard sphere. In dimension 4 the PL type is not specified. The algorithm uses a result due to [KS77] stating that, in dimension ≠ 4, any simply connected homology sphere with PL structure is a standard PL sphere. The function calls SCIsSimplyConnected (12.1-14) which uses a heuristic method described in [PS15].

 gap> c:=SCBdCyclicPolytope(4,20);;
gap> SCIsSphere(c);

gap> c:=SCSurface(1,true);;
gap> SCIsSphere(c);

12.1-17 SCIsManifold
 ‣ SCIsManifold( c ) ( function )

Returns: a boolean value upon success, fail otherweise.

The algorithm is a heuristic method and is described in [PS15] in more detail. Internally calls SCIsManifoldEx (12.1-18).

 gap> c:=SCBdCyclicPolytope(4,20);;
gap> SCIsManifold(c);
true


12.1-18 SCIsManifoldEx
 ‣ SCIsManifoldEx( c[, aut, quasi] ) ( function )

Returns: a boolean value upon success, fail otherweise.

If the boolean argument aut is true the automorphism group is computed and only one link per orbit is checked to be a sphere. If aut is not provided symmetry information is only used if the automorphism group is already known. If the boolean argument quasi is false the algorithm returns whether or not c is a combinatorial manifold. If quasi is true the 4-dimensional links are not verified to be standard PL 4-spheres and c is a combinatorial manifold modulo the smooth Poincare conjecture. By default quasi is set to false. The algorithm is a heuristic method and is described in [PS15] in more detail.

See SCBistellarIsManifold (9.2-6) for an alternative method for manifold verification.

 gap> c:=SCBdCyclicPolytope(4,20);;
gap> SCIsManifold(c);
