Visualizing combinatorial objects in Macaulay2. (English) Zbl 1411.05004

Summary: Using JavaScript, this package creates interactive visualizations of a variety of objects in a modern browser. The user has the ability to manipulate the object, run various tests, and compute invariants. Once finished, the user can export the result back to the Macaulay2 session.
