Description (last modified by )
We implement the ambient volume using backend normaliz.
This is done by return 0 or infinity if the polyhedron is not fulldimensional and not compact respectively.
Otherwise, we take the induced_lattice
volume and divide by factorial(self.dim())
.
See section 6.1.1 of the normaliz manual on how induced_lattice
volume relates to euclidean volume: https://github.com/Normaliz/Normaliz/blob/master/doc/Normaliz.pdf
This is much faster than the current method, so we set this to default if backend is normaliz.
sage: P = polytopes.dodecahedron(backend='normaliz') sage: %time P.volume(engine='normaliz') CPU times: user 3.91 ms, sys: 0 ns, total: 3.91 ms Wall time: 1.49 ms 176*sqrt5 + 400 sage: %time P.volume(engine='internal') CPU times: user 26.5 ms, sys: 332 µs, total: 26.9 ms Wall time: 27.5 ms 176*sqrt5 + 400
sage: P = polytopes.one_hundred_twenty_cell(backend='normaliz') sage: %time P.volume(engine='normaliz') CPU times: user 1.5 s, sys: 0 ns, total: 1.5 s Wall time: 210 ms 120*sqrt5 sage: %time P.volume(engine='internal') CPU times: user 8.61 s, sys: 14.7 ms, total: 8.63 s Wall time: 8.63 s 120*sqrt5
sage: P = polytopes.hypercube(6, backend='normaliz') sage: %time P.volume(engine='normaliz') CPU times: user 2.33 ms, sys: 0 ns, total: 2.33 ms Wall time: 2.34 ms 64 sage: %time P.volume(engine='internal') CPU times: user 183 ms, sys: 32 µs, total: 183 ms Wall time: 182 ms 64
This also speeds up calculation in case the polyhedron is not fulldimensional:
sage: P = polytopes.permutahedron(6, backend='normaliz') sage: %time P.volume(measure='induced') CPU times: user 37.7 s, sys: 42.4 ms, total: 37.7 s Wall time: 24.2 s 1296*sqrt(6) sage: %time P.volume(engine='internal', measure='induced') CPU times: user 42.9 s, sys: 71.9 ms, total: 43 s Wall time: 41.8 s 1296*sqrt(6)
However, note that calculation of the affine hull takes quite some time in this case. So we leave the inexact normaliz option for now:
sage: %time P.volume(engine='normaliz', measure='induced') CPU times: user 710 ms, sys: 0 ns, total: 710 ms Wall time: 92.3 ms 3174.5387066469984
Possible follow ups:
There is probably a good and fast way to convert the lattice volume to the euclidean volume exactly. Also, once we can set up a normaliz polyhedron with both Vrep and Hrep, affine hull should be really quick.

It should be noted that the conversion of the normaliz output does not work correctly when computing Sublattice
for algebraic polyhedra.

You should add the reference to the manual in the documentation of the function. That would be a good improvement.

It would be nice to have this in 9.1, if possible.

 Status changed from needs_review to needs_work
Is the following "unimodual" a typo? Is unimodular meant?
+ One other possibility is to compute the scaled volume where a unimodual
There is also
+ volume of the unimodal simplex (or zero if not fulldimensional)::
Unimodular?
Could you check if this occurs in the rest of the file too?
Otherwise, the ticket looks good and the bots are green on 9.1rc0, so you can put this on positive review on my behalf once you considered the above comments.
