BigObject Action

from application group

parametrized object used for encoding group actions (representations).

  • GeneratorType is
    • Array<Int> for permutation groups, or
    • Matrix<Scalar> for matrix groups.
  • DomainType is
    • Int for permutation groups,
    • Vector<Scalar> for matrix groups acting on facets or vertices,
    • Set<Int> or Bitset for groups acting on simplices,
    • IncidenceMatrix for groups acting on (maximal) cones of a fan
  • OrbitGeneratorScalarType is the type of the entries of vectors that generate a geometric orbit; default Rational

Symmetry

These properties capture information of the object that is concerned with the action of permutation groups.


ALL_GROUP_ELEMENTS

All elements of the group, as expressed in the present action Notice that this is a temporary property; it will not be stored in any file.

Type:
Array<GeneratorType>

CHARACTER

The character of the action. The ordering corresponds to the columns of the CHARACTER_TABLE

Type:

CONJUGACY_CLASSES

The conjugacy classes themselves

Type:
Array<Set<GeneratorType>>

CONJUGACY_CLASS_REPRESENTATIVES

A set of representatives for each conjugacy class. The order of these representatives must agree with the implicit order of the columns of the CHARACTER_TABLE.

Type:
Array<GeneratorType>

DEGREE

The degree of the representation. For permutation groups, this is the number of permuted indices, for matrix groups it is the dimension of the vector space the group acts on

Type:
Int
