Polycyclic presentations for matrix groups

Version 1.3.8

This project is maintained by Max Horn

GAP Package Polenta

The Polenta package provides methods to compute polycyclic presentations of matrix groups (finite or infinite). As a by-product, this package gives some functionality to compute certain module series for modules of solvable groups. For example, if G is a rational polycyclic matrix group, then we can compute the radical series of the natural Q[G]-module Q^d.

The current version of this package is version 1.3.8. For more information, please refer to the package manual. There is also a README file.


This package requires GAP version >= 4.7
