Computes the multivariable Alexander polynomial (MVA) of a polygonal link.
an N x 3 matrix of the x, y, z coordinates of a polygonal link
a vector of positive integers defining the separators of the polygonal link
logical, if FALSE (default) the multivariable non normalized MVA is returned, the normalized MVA otherwise
logical, if TRUE the Alexander matrix is returned in a format that can be parsed to sympy
The polynomial computation relies on rSymPy. Please notice that the first time sympy is invoked is expected to be much slower than subsequent ones.

This is a low-level function. If you wish to make computations faster, reduce the structure first with
