In this paper we consider different involutive divisions and describe their implementation in Mathematica together with algorithms for the construction of involutive bases for monomial ideals. As a straightforward application, we consider computation of the Hilbert function and the Hilbert polynomial for a monomial ideal, or for a polynomial one represented by its Gröbner basis. This allows one, in particular, to determine the index of regularity of the ideal.
