Simplicial decomposability

David Cook II

Vol. 2 (2010), 20–23

We introduce a new Macaulay2 package, SimplicialDecomposability, which works in conjunction with the extant package SimplicialComplexes in order to compute a shelling order, if one exists, of a specified simplicial complex. Further, methods for determining vertex-decomposability are implemented, along with methods for determining k–decomposability.
