For this I need to use linear algebra for the set
$$\{1, x_i, x_i^2,\dots\}$$
I write each one of them in terms of the basis for the quotient ring $k[x_1,\dots,x_n]/I$, and see if they are linearly dependent.
Since I add in one more power a time, when I find a linearly dependent set, it should have nullity $1$. So if I can get the one element in basis of the kernel, I am done. But the $A.kernel()$ command in Sage gives me this:
N=M.kernel();N
Vector space of degree 2 and dimension 1 over Rational Field
Basis matrix:
[0 1]
Is there a way to assign it as a vector using the kernel command? Or do I have to write my own function to implement it? Thank you for your help!KittyLTue, 24 May 2016 06:47:57 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/33533/
