Introduction

In this tutorial we learn how to install cohomcalg on Debian 10.

What is cohomcalg

The algorithm for the computation of sheaf cohomologies for line bundles on toric varieties presented in “Cohomology of Line Bundles: A Computational Algorithm” by Ralph Blumenhagen, Benjamin Jurke, Thorsten Rahn, and Helmut Roschy has been implemented in a convenient and high-performance C/C++ application called cohomCalg. . The optional cohomCalg Koszul extension serves as a Mathematica 7 frontend and allows for the easy computation of hypersurface and complete intersection cohomologies, following the material presented in “Cohomology of Line Bundles: Applications” by the same authors.

There are three ways to install cohomcalg on Debian 10. We can use apt-get, apt and aptitude. In the following sections we will describe each method. You can choose one of them.
