Documentation Build Status

Welcome to the OSCAR project, a visionary new computer algebra system which combines the capabilities of four cornerstone systems: GAP, Polymake, Antic and Singular.

Installation

OSCAR requires Julia 1.6 or newer. In principle it can be installed and used like any other Julia package; doing so will take a couple of minutes:

julia> using Pkg
julia> Pkg.add("Oscar")
julia> using Oscar

However, some of OSCAR's components have additional requirements. For more detailed information, please consult the installation instructions on our website.

Contributing to OSCAR

Please read the introduction for new developers in the OSCAR manual to learn more on how to contribute to OSCAR.

Examples of usage

julia> k, a = quadratic_field(-5)
(Imaginary quadratic field defined by x^2 + 5, sqrt(-5))

julia> zk = maximal_order(k)
Maximal order of Imaginary quadratic field defined by x^2 + 5
with basis nf_elem[1, sqrt(-5)]

julia> factorisations(zk(6))
2-element Vector{Fac{NfOrdElem}}:
 -1 * (sqrt(-5) + 1) * (sqrt(-5) - 1)
 -1 * 2 * -3

julia> Qx, x = polynomial_ring(QQ, [:x1,:x2])
(Multivariate Polynomial Ring in x1, x2 over Rational Field, QQMPolyRingElem[x1, x2])

julia> R = grade(Qx, [1,2])[1]
Multivariate Polynomial Ring in x1, x2 over Rational Field graded by
  x1 -> [1]
  x2 -> [2]

julia> f = R(x[1]^2+x[2])
x1^2 + x2

julia> degree(f)
graded by [2]

julia> F = free_module(R, 1)
Free module of rank 1 over R

julia> s = sub(F, [f*F[1]])
Submodule with 1 generator
1 -> (x1^2 + x2)*e[1]
represented as subquotient with no relations.

julia> H, mH = hom(s, quo(F, s))
(hom of (s, Subquotient of Submodule with 1 generator
1 -> e[1]
by Submodule with 1 generator
1 -> (x1^2 + x2)*e[1]), Map from
H to Set of all homomorphisms from Submodule with 1 generator
1 -> (x1^2 + x2)*e[1]
represented as subquotient with no relations. to Subquotient of Submodule with 1 generator
1 -> e[1]
by Submodule with 1 generator
1 -> (x1^2 + x2)*e[1] defined by a julia-function with inverse)

julia> mH(H[1])
Map with following data
Domain:
=======
s
Codomain:
=========
Subquotient of Submodule with 1 generator
1 -> e[1]
by Submodule with 1 generator
1 -> (x1^2 + x2)*e[1]

Of course, the cornerstones are also available directly:

julia> C = Polymake.polytope.cube(3);

julia> C.F_VECTOR
pm::Vector<pm::Integer>
8 12 6

julia> RP2 = Polymake.topaz.real_projective_plane();

julia> RP2.HOMOLOGY
PropertyValue wrapping pm::Array<polymake::topaz::HomologyGroup<pm::Integer>>
({} 0)
({(2 1)} 0)
({} 0)
