Description (last modified by )
We use CombinatorialPolyhedron
to obtain the faces of fixed dimensions of a polyhedron.
We add a method face_generator
, which iterates over all faces (possibly of fixed dimension).
With this ticket we can obtain the faces much faster and without generating the entire face lattice. The iterator is a true iterator in the sense that it has almost constant memory usage and does and no point store a list of all faces.
This ticket changes the order of the output of faces
.
There is a conflict with #17215, as it assumes the faces in the old order. However, if this here looks good, #17215 can also be marked dependent on #28646.

 Status changed from needs_review to needs_work
I would vote to change face_dimension
to simply dimension
.
The INPUT of combinatorial_face_to_polyhedral_face
is too verbose to me.
A Polyhedron
, the polyhedron containing the face
A CombinatorialFace
OUTPUT:
A PolyhedronFace
is sufficient. If you insist to have the links on the documentation ok... But I would not be too verbose here.

Replying to jipilab:
I would vote to change
face_dimension
to simplydimension
.
This is to be consistent with the method faces
`.

 Description modified (diff)
I accidentally pulled #28625 instead of #28621. As #28625 is closed, I don't feel like fixing the branch.
New commits:
added combinatorial polyhedron as an attribute for polyhedra
Merge branch 'public/28607' of git://trac.sagemath.org/sage into public/28621
used CombinatorialPolyhedron to compute f_vector
give an error message for polytopes in some cases; removed incorrect example
now we get a precice error message for inexact truncated dodecahedron
subsequent calls for f_vector fail if first attempt fails
Merge branch 'public/28625' of git://trac.sagemath.org/sage into face_iter
polyhedron uses CombinatorialPolyhedron for :meth:`faces`; added :meth:`face_generator`
