Description (last modified by )
Currently, computing facets of a lattice polytope, changes whether it is reflexive or not.
sage: p = LatticePolytope([], lattice=ToricLattice(3).dual()); p 1d lattice polytope in 3d lattice M sage: a = p.faces()[0][0] sage: p = LatticePolytope([], lattice=ToricLattice(3).dual()); p 1d lattice polytope in 3d lattice M sage: a = p.faces()[0][0]; a 1d lattice polytope in 3d lattice M sage: a.facet_normals() Empty collection in 3d lattice N sage: a 1d reflexive polytope in 3d lattice M

What do you mean its own definition??? It is the same definition as in other places and it does not overwrite is_reflexive
but rather sets a cached value. However the code failed to check that the polytope is fulldimensional, so I'd much rather keep the old code and add the missing check rather than getting rid of an easy computation and triggering another one right away with
is_reflexive()
call.

Sorry. I was completely puzzled about this and exaggerated.
As you can probably tell, I stumbled open this trying to implement incidence matrix.
I still don't get the advantage of the current setup. Is it because we avoid making a copy of the constants?
What currently happens with is_reflexive
is that it implicitly calls compute_facets
, which computes the value for is_reflexive
. However, is_reflexive
now recomputes the value and returns it. I don't think this is ideal.

But my idea isn't perfect either.
It is still double calculation. Just executing the same code now.

Anyway. I don't have hard feelings about this. I think we can just fix it in place.

Sorry for confusing code, believe me it used to be even more convoluted, especially with regard to determining and using reflexivity ;) It still feels to me that this is a better fix.

 Description modified (diff)
 Summary changed from Lattice Polytopes: `compute_facets` has its own definition of reflexive and applies it to Lattice Polytopes: `compute_facets` does not check dimension when setting is_reflexive
