The polymake commands below can be copied-and-pasted into a polymake session. Alternatively, using `load_commands`

, you can let polymake guide you through these commands one by one. As of version 3.1 polymake supports Jupyter notebooks. Eventually all polymake command snippets will be converted into that form.

Descriptions of selected collections in the polymake database.

This is intentionally kept short rather than complete. All examples refer to version 3.1 of March 2017.
