Exponent Lists

Type Name:
tex2html_wrap_inline6518 , tex2html_wrap_inline6520 .
A power product tex2html_wrap_inline6522 is represented as the list of exponents tex2html_wrap_inline6518 . This representation induces an ordering on the variables tex2html_wrap_inline6526 . Obviously, l is the number of variables.

We do not use arbitrarily long integers for the exponents but only C integers. For usual applications of the Gröbner bases algorithm this should suffice.
