Input: | Finite abstract simplicial complex Δ given by a list of facets, i ∈ N |
---|---|
Output: | The i-th homology group of Δ, given by its rank and its torsion coefficients |
Status (general): | Open |
---|---|
Status (fixed dim.): | Polynomial time |
There exists a polynomial time algorithm if Δ is given by the list of all simplices, since the Smith normal form of an integer matrix can be computed efficiently (Iliopoulos [31]). For fixed i or dim(Δ) - i, the sizes of the boundary matrices are polynomial in the size of Δ and the Smith normal form can again be computed efficiently. |
