BigObject Action
from application group
parametrized object used for encoding group actions (representations).
 GeneratorType is
Array<Int>
for permutation groups, orMatrix<Scalar>
for matrix groups.
 DomainType is
Int
for permutation groups,Vector<Scalar>
for matrix groups acting on facets or vertices,Set<Int>
orBitset
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
Properties
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:

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
