I'm trying to get the convex hull of a finite set of points, then plotting the polygon. If I just plot the polygon with the vertices directly, I don't get the vertices in the right order to make up a convex polygon (plots edges joining the wrong points). Then I found out about cyclic_sort_vertices_2d which I thought would sort the vertices into the right order, but that's giving me errors. I don't understand the meaning of the errors. Appreciate any help. here's the relevant code: hull = Polyhedron(vertices=thePoints); hull.vertices(); cyclic_sort_vertices_2d(hull.vertices());  And I have this import line at the top of my code for cyclic sort: from sage.geometry.polyhedron.plot import cyclic_sort_vertices_2d;  Here's my output:  (A vertex at (9464.0, 10816.0), A vertex at (8736.0, 7735.0), A vertex at (7904.0, 8736.0), A vertex at (11088.0, 5607.0), A vertex at (15552.0, 6480.0), A vertex at (8160.0, 9248.0), A vertex at (8568.0, 9792.0), A vertex at (11076.0, 10140.0), A vertex at (12852.0, 5355.0))  And errors: Error in lines 28-30 Traceback (most recent call last): File "/projects/sage/sage-6.10/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/smc_sagews/sage_server.py", line 905, in execute exec compile(block+'\n', '', 'single') in namespace, locals File "", line 1, in File "/projects/sage/sage-6.10/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/geometry/polyhedron/plot.py", line 245, in cyclic_sort_vertices_2d adjacency_matrix = Vlist[0].polyhedron().vertex_adjacency_matrix() File "sage/misc/cachefunc.pyx", line 2215, in sage.misc.cachefunc.CachedMethodCallerNoArgs.__call__ (/projects/sage/sage-6.10/src/build/cythonized/sage/misc/cachefunc.c:14346) self.cache = f(self._instance) File "/projects/sage/sage-6.10/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/geometry/polyhedron/base.py", line 1847, in vertex_adjacency_matrix return self._vertex_adjacency_matrix() File "/projects/sage/sage-6.10/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/geometry/polyhedron/base.py", line 312, in _vertex_adjacency_matrix face_lattice = self.face_lattice() File "sage/misc/cachefunc.pyx", line 2215, in sage.misc.cachefunc.CachedMethodCallerNoArgs.__call__ (/projects/sage/sage-6.10/src/build/cythonized/sage/misc/cachefunc.c:14346) self.cache = f(self._instance) File "/projects/sage/sage-6.10/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/geometry/polyhedron/base.py", line 3172, in face_lattice face_constructor=face_constructor, required_atoms=atoms_vertices) File "/projects/sage/sage-6.10/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/geometry/hasse_diagram.py", line 182, in Hasse_diagram_from_incidences for coatom, atoms in enumerate(coatom_to_atoms)] KeyError: (frozenset([]), frozenset([0]))  2016-05-26 05:32:20 +0200 received badge ● Popular Question (source) 2015-11-08 05:03:54 +0200 received badge ● Student (source) 2015-11-08 01:56:35 +0200 commented answer solving simultaneous equations Thanks!

Appreciate any help. I can solve the problem by hand, but obviously that's not the point here. I'm trying to find out what I'm doing wrong and learn to use sagemath cloud properly. 2015-11-07 19:13:48 +0200 received badge ● Scholar (source) 2015-11-07 19:13:45 +0200 commented answer Having trouble solving simultaneous questions It is not letting me upvote. I will accept the answer though. 2015-11-07 17:07:58 +0200 commented answer Having trouble solving simultaneous questions Seems like replacing x with x1 helped a little, but it's not solving the system of equations. 2015-11-07 17:06:11 +0200 commented answer Having trouble solving simultaneous questions Thanks.
