`SCSimplicialComplex`

`SCSimplicialComplex`

object from a facet listThis section contains functions to generate or to construct new simplicial complexes. Some of them obtain new complexes from existing ones, some generate new complexes from scratch.

`‣ SCFromFacets` ( facets ) | ( method ) |

Returns: simplicial complex of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

Constructs a simplicial complex object from the given facet list. The facet list `facets` has to be a duplicate free list (or set) which consists of duplicate free entries, which are in turn lists or sets. For the vertex labels (i. e. the entries of the list items of `facets`) an ordering via the less-operator has to be defined. Following Section 4.11 of the **GAP** manual this is the case for objects of the following families: rationals `IsRat`

, cyclotomics `IsCyclotomic`

, finite field elements `IsFFE`

, permutations `IsPerm`

, booleans `IsBool`

, characters `IsChar`

and lists (strings) `IsList`

.

Internally the vertices are mapped to the standard labeling 1..n, where n is the number of vertices of the complex and the vertex labels of the original complex are stored in the property ''VertexLabels'', see `SCLabels`

(4.2-3) and the `SCRelabel..`

functions like `SCRelabel`

(4.2-6) or `SCRelabelStandard`

(4.2-7).

Name="unnamed complex 10" Dim=2 /SimplicialComplex]

`‣ SC` ( facets ) | ( method ) |

Returns: simplicial complex of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

A shorter function to create a simplicial complex from a facet list, just calls `SCFromFacets`

(6.1-1)(`facets`).

gap> c:=SC(Combinations([1..6],5)); [SimplicialComplex Properties known: Dim, FacetsEx, Name, Vertices. Name="unnamed complex 11" Dim=4 /SimplicialComplex]

`‣ SCFromDifferenceCycles` ( diffcycles ) | ( method ) |

Returns: simplicial complex of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

Creates a simplicial complex object from the list of difference cycles provided. If `diffcycles` is of length 1 the computation is equivalent to the one in `SCDifferenceCycleExpand`

(6.6-8). Otherwise the induced modulus (the sum of all entries of a difference cycle) of all cycles has to be equal and the union of all expanded difference cycles is returned.

A n-dimensional difference cycle D = (d_1 : ... : d_n+1) induces a simplex ∆ = ( v_1 , ... , v_n+1 ) by v_1 = d_1, v_i = v_i-1 + d_i and a cyclic group action by Z_σ where σ = ∑ d_i is the modulus of D. The function returns the Z_σ-orbit of ∆.

Note that modulo operations in **GAP** are often a little bit cumbersome, since all integer ranges usually start from 1.

`‣ SCFromGenerators` ( group, generators ) | ( method ) |

Returns: simplicial complex of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

Constructs a simplicial complex object from the set of `generators` on which the group `group` acts, i.e. a complex which has `group` as a subgroup of the automorphism group and a facet list that consists of the `group`-orbits specified by the list of representatives passed in `generators`. Note that `group` is not stored as an attribute of the resulting complex as it might just be a subgroup of the actual automorphism group. Internally calls `Orbits`

and `SCFromFacets`

(6.1-1).

This section contains functions to construct simplicial complexes from isomorphism signatures and to compress closed and strongly connected weak pseudomanifolds to strings.

The isomorphism signature of a closed and strongly connected weak pseudomanifold is a representation which is invariant under relabelings of the underlying complex and thus unique for a combinatorial type, i.e. two complexes are isomorphic iff they have the same isomorphism signature.

To compute the isomorphism signature of a closed and strongly connected weak pseudomanifold P we have to compute all canonical labelings of P and chose the one that is lexicographically minimal.

A canonical labeling of P is determined by chosing a facet ∆ ∈ P and a numbering 1, 2, ... , d+1 of the vertices of ∆ (which in turn determines a numbering of the co-dimension one faces of ∆ by identifying each face with its opposite vertex). This numbering can then be uniquely extended to a numbering (and thus a labeling) on all vertices of P by the weak pseudomanifold property: start at face 1 of ∆ and label the opposite vertex of the unique other facet δ meeting face 1 by d+2, go on with face 2 of ∆ and so on. After finishing with the first facet we now have a numbering on δ, repeat the procedure for δ, etc. Whenever the opposite vertex of a face is already labeled (and also, if the vertex occurs for the first time) we note this label. Whenever a facet is already visited we skip this step and keep track of the number of skippings between any two newly discovered facets. This results in a sequence of m-1 vertex labels together with m-1 skipping numbers (where m denotes the number of facets in P) which then can by encoded by characters via a lookup table.

Note that there are precisely (d+1)! m canonical labelings we have to check in order to find the lexicographically minimal one. Thus, computing the isomorphism signature of a large or highly dimensional complex can be time consuming. If you are not interested in the isomorphism signature but just in the compressed string representation use `SCExportToString`

(6.2-1) which just computes the first canonical labeling of the complex provided as argument and returns the resulting string.

Note: Another way of storing and loading complexes is provided by simpcomp's library functionality, see Section 13.1 for details.

`‣ SCExportToString` ( c ) | ( function ) |

Beginning from Version 1.3.0, **simpcomp** is able to generate triangulations from a prescribed transitive group action on its set of vertices. Note that the corresponding group is a subgroup of the full automorphism group, but not necessarily the full automorphism group of the triangulations obtained in this way. The methods and algorithms are based on the works of Frank H. Lutz [Lut03], [ManifoldPage] and in particular his program `MANIFOLD_VT`

.

-tuples on the set of `n` vertices, see [Lut03]. The integer argument `objectType` specifies, whether complexes exceeding the maximal size of each vertex link for combinatorial manifolds are sorted out (`objectType = 0`

, in this case some combinatorial pseudomanifolds won't be found, but no combinatorial manifold will be sorted out). The integer argument `cache` specifies if the orbits are held in memory during the computation, a value of `0`

means that the orbits are discarded, trading speed for memory, any other value means that they are kept, trading memory for speed. The boolean argument `removeDoubleEntries` specifies whether the results are checked for combinatorial isomorphism, preventing isomorphic entries. The argument `outfile` specifies an output file containing all complexes found by the algorithm, if `outfile` is anything else than a string, not output file is generated. The argument `maxLinkSize` determines a maximal link size of any output complex. If `maxLinkSize`=0 or if `maxLinkSize` is anything else than an integer the argument is ignored. The argument `subset` specifies a set of orbits (given by a list of indices of `repHigh`

) which have to be contained in any output complex. If `subset` is anything else than a subset of `matrixAllowedRows`

the argument is ignored.

The following functions compute basic properties of simplicial complexes of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

. None of these functions alter the complex. All properties are returned as immutable objects (this ensures data consistency of the cached properties of a simplicial complex). Use `ShallowCopy`

or the internal **simpcomp** function `SCIntFunc.DeepCopy`

to get a mutable copy.

Note: every simplicial complex is internally stored with the standard vertex labeling from 1 to n and a maptable to restore the original vertex labeling. Thus, we have to relabel some of the complex properties (facets, face lattice, generators, etc...) whenever we want to return them to the user. As a consequence, some of the functions exist twice, one of them with the appendix "Ex". These functions return the standard labeling whereas the other ones relabel the result to the original labeling.

`‣ SCAltshulerSteinberg` ( complex ) | ( method ) |

Returns: a non-negative integer upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

Computes the Altshuler-Steinberg determinant.

Definition: Let v_i, 1 ≤ i ≤ n be the vertices and let F_j, 1 ≤ j ≤ m be the facets of a pure simplicial complex C, then the determinant of AS ∈ Z^n × m, AS_ij=1 if v_i ∈ F_j, AS_ij=0 otherwise, is called the Altshuler-Steinberg matrix. The Altshuler-Steinberg determinant is the determinant of the quadratic matrix AS ⋅ AS^T.

The Altshuler-Steinberg determinant is a combinatorial invariant of C and can be checked before searching for an isomorphism between two simplicial complexes.

Necessarily the group is a subgroup of the symmetric group S_n where n is the number of vertices of the simplicial complex.

The function uses an efficient algorithm provided by the package **GRAPE** (see [Soi12], which is based on the program `nauty`

(6.9-3).

The position of the group in the **GAP** libraries of small groups, transitive groups or primitive groups is given. If the group is not listed, its structure description, provided by the **GAP** function `StructureDescription()`

, is returned as the name of the group. Note that the latter form is not always unique, since every non trivial semi-direct product is denoted by ''`:`

`‣ SCSkelEx` ( complex, k ) | ( method ) |

Returns: a face list or a list of face lists upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

If `k` is an integer, the `k`-skeleton of a simplicial complex `complex`, i. e. all `k`-faces of `complex`, is computed. If `k` is a list, a list of all `k``[i]`

-faces of `complex` for each entry `k``[i]`

(which has to be an integer) is returned. The faces are returned in the standard labeling.

`‣ SCSpanningTree` ( complex ) | ( method ) |

Returns: simplicial complex of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

Computes a spanning tree of a connected simplicial complex `complex` using a greedy algorithm.

The following functions perform operations on simplicial complexes. Most of them return simplicial complexes. Thus, this section is closely related to the Sections 6.6 ''Generate new complexes from old''. However, the data generated here is rather seen as an intrinsic attribute of the original complex and not as an independent complex.

`‣ SCAlexanderDual` ( complex ) | ( method ) |

Returns: simplicial complex of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

The Alexander dual of a simplicial complex `complex` with set of vertices V is the simplicial complex where any subset of V spans a face if and only if its complement in V is a non-face of `complex`.

`‣ SCClose` ( complex[, apex] ) | ( function ) |

Returns: simplicial complex of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

Closes a simplicial complex `complex` by building a cone over its boundary. If `apex` is specified it is assigned to the apex of the cone and the original vertex labeling of `complex` is preserved, otherwise an arbitrary vertex label is chosen and `complex` is returned in the standard labeling.

gap> s:=SCSimplex(5);; gap> b:=SCSimplex(5);; gap> s:=SCClose(b,13);; gap> SCIsIsomorphic(s,SCBdSimplex(6)); true

`‣ SCCone` ( complex, apex ) | ( function ) |

Returns: simplicial complex of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

If the second argument is passed every facet of the simplicial complex `complex` is united with `apex`. If not, an arbitrary vertex label v is used (which is not a vertex of `complex`). In the first case the vertex labeling remains unchanged. In the second case the function returns the new complex in the standard vertex labeling from 1 to n+1 and the apex of the cone is n+1.

If called with a facet list instead of a `SCSimplicialComplex`

object and `apex` is not specified, internally falls back to the homology package [DHSW11], if available.

Forms the ``difference'' of two simplicial complexes `complex1` and `complex2` as the simplicial complex formed by the difference of the face lattices of `complex1` minus `complex2`. The two arguments are not altered. Note: for the difference process the vertex labelings of the complexes are taken into account, see also `Operation Difference (SCSimplicialComplex, SCSimplicialComplex)`

Returns: simplicial complex of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

Returns a simplicial complex obtained by identifying the vertices of facet `f1` with the ones from facet `f2` in `complex`. A combinatorial handle addition is possible, whenever we have d(v,w) ≥ 3 for any two vertices v ∈`f1` and w ∈`f2`, where d(⋅,⋅) is the length of the shortest path from v to w. This condition is not checked by this algorithm. See [BD11] for further information.

`‣ SCShelling` ( complex ) | ( method ) |

Returns: a facet list or `false`

upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

The simplicial complex `complex` must be pure, strongly connected and must fulfill the weak pseudomanifold property with non-empty boundary (cf. `SCBoundary`

(6.9-7)).

An ordering (F_1, F_2, ... , F_r) on the facet list of a simplicial complex is a shelling if and only if F_i ∩ (F_1 ∪ ... ∪ F_i-1) is a pure simplicial complex of dimension d-1 for all i = 1, ... , r.

The function checks whether `complex` is shellable or not. In the first case a permuted version of the facet list of `complex` is returned encoding a shelling of `complex`, otherwise `false`

is returned.

Internally calls `SCShellingExt`

(6.10-17)`(complex,false,[]);`

`‣ SCShellingExt` ( complex, all, checkvector ) | ( method ) |

Returns: a list of facet lists (if `checkvector = []`) or `true`

or `false`

(if `checkvector` is not empty), `fail`

otherwise.

The simplicial complex `complex` must be pure of dimension d, strongly connected and must fulfill the weak pseudomanifold property with non-empty boundary (cf. `SCBoundary`

(6.9-7)).

An ordering (F_1, F_2, ... , F_r) on the facet list of a simplicial complex is a shelling if and only if F_i ∩ (F_1 ∪ ... ∪ F_i-1) is a pure simplicial complex of dimension d-1 for all i = 1, ... , r.

If `all` is set to `true`

all possible shellings of `complex` are computed. If `all` is set to `false`

, at most one shelling is computed.

Every shelling is represented as a permuted version of the facet list of `complex`. The list `checkvector` encodes a shelling in a shorter form. It only contains the indices of the facets. If an order of indices is assigned to `checkvector` the function tests whether it is a valid shelling or not.

See [Zie95], [Pac87] to learn more about shellings.

`‣ SCSpan` ( complex, subset ) | ( method ) |

Returns: simplicial complex of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

Computes the reduced face lattice of all faces of a simplicial complex `complex` that are spanned by `subset`, a subset of the set of vertices of `complex`.

`‣ SCSuspension` ( complex ) | ( method ) |

Returns: simplicial complex of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

Calculates the simplicial suspension of the simplicial complex `complex`. Internally falls back to the homology package [DHSW11] (if available) if a facet list is passed as argument. Note that the vertex labelings of the complexes passed as arguments are not propagated to the new complex.

`‣ SCUnion` ( complex1, complex2 ) | ( method ) |

Returns: simplicial complex of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

Forms the union of two simplicial complexes `complex1` and `complex2` as the simplicial complex formed by the union of their facets sets. The two arguments are not altered. Note: for the union process the vertex labelings of the complexes are taken into account, see also `Operation Union (SCSimplicialComplex, SCSimplicialComplex)`

(5.3-1). Facets occurring in both arguments are treated as one facet in the new complex.

gap> c:=SCUnion(SCBdSimplex(3),SCBdSimplex(3)+3); #a wedge of two 2-spheres [SimplicialComplex Properties known: Dim, FacetsEx, Name, Vertices. Name="S^2_4 cup S^2_4" Dim=2 /SimplicialComplex]

`‣ SCVertexIdentification` ( complex, v1, v2 ) | ( method ) |

Returns: simplicial complex of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

Identifies vertex `v1` with vertex `v2` in a simplicial complex `complex` and returns the result as a new object. A vertex identification of `v1` and `v2` is possible whenever d(`v1`,`v2`) ≥ 3. This is not checked by this algorithm.

`‣ SCWedge` ( complex1, complex2 ) | ( method ) |

Returns: simplicial complex of type `SCSimplicialComplex`

upon success, `fail`

otherwise.

Calculates the wedge product of the complexes supplied as arguments. Note that the vertex labelings of the complexes passed as arguments are not propagated to the new complex.

gap> wedge:=SCWedge(SCBdSimplex(2),SCBdSimplex(2)); [SimplicialComplex Properties known: Dim, FacetsEx, Name, Vertices.
