Abstract  For a set of reduced points $\mathbb{X}\subset \mathbb{P}^n$,
we describe an efficient algorithm to compute a minimal graded
presentation of the canonical module of the homogeneous
coordinate ring of $\mathbb{X}$. Applications are given for
computing minimal graded free resolutions of points with generic
Hilbert function, and for checking uniformity conditions such as
the CayleyBacharach property and the uniform position property. 
Keywords  canonical module, set of points, Gröbner basis, minimal free resolution, uniform position property
