current status

  • polymake callable library
  • libsingular
  • Singular <-> Polymake interface via polymake callable library and libsingular
  • in Singular: classes cones, fans and polytopes as shared library provided by gfanlib (see
  • in Singular: classes divisors, pdivisors as standard library using newstruct (see divisor.lib)
  • in Polymake: Ideals introduced as objects, desired properties.

goals of the meeting

  • create a new wrapper for gfanlib and polymake callable library for Singular
  • make polymake graphs available for Singular (for Hasse diagrams of the face poset of a cone/fan/polytope)
  • documentation on shared libraries in Singular
  • implement algorithm 2.1 of [Ilten, Kastner]
  • take a Polymake matrix and create the Singular ring with the monomial ordering associated to this matrix.
