Recently, it was shown that a binary linear code can be associated to a binomial ideal given as the sum of a toric ideal and a non-prime ideal. Since then two different generalizations have been provided which coincide for the binary case. In this paper, we establish some connections between the two approaches. In particular, we show that the corresponding… (More)
Linear codes over any finite field can be associated to binomial ideals. Focussing on two specific instances, called the code ideal and the generalized code ideal, we present how these binomial ideals can be computed from toric ideals by substituting some variables. Drawing on this result we further show how their Graver bases as well as their universal… (More)
Gröbner bases can be used for computing the Hilbert basis of a numerical submonoid. By using these techniques, we provide an algorithm that calculates a basis of a subspace of a finite-dimensional vector space over a finite prime field given as a matrix kernel.
