The Symbolic-Computation-and-Coclass package This is the README file for the GAP package "SymbCompCC". This package gives tools to compute with elements in Q[p^x]. These elements are used to give parameter presentations for p-groups of certain coclass and the computation of the Schur extension of these families of groups. The package is distributed with the main GAP archive. For updates check the package Web page https://gap-packages.github.io/SymbCompCC/ An installation should be possible on any system. You have to unpack the package into the GAP-package directory pkg. Now start GAP and type LoadPackage("SymbCompCC"); The ``SymbCompCC" package banner should appear on the screen. For details on how to use the SymbCompCC package see the package documentation in the `doc' subdirectory (view either `manual.dvi' via `xdvi' or or `manual.pdf' via a PDF viewer).
