GAP Package Nilmat

The Nilmat package contains methods for checking whether a finitely generated matrix group over a finite field or the field of rational numbers is nilpotent, methods for computing with such nilpotent matrix groups and methods for constructing important classes of such nilpotent matrix groups.

The current version of this package is version 1.4, released on 2020-02-09. For more information, please refer to the package manual. There is also a README file.
